Officially inaugurated on the 2nd of august 2009, the Stadium RCDE was conceived in 2002, when the club decided to organize an international tender to choose a new setting. The winning project was the one by Mark Fenwick and Esteve Gasulla, who projected a stadium to hold 41,000 spectators between the municipal districts of Cornellà and El Prat de Llobregat.
That project has already come true and it is conceived as an element of creation of new infrastructures and interrelation among the citizens, following the criteria of new stadiums in Europe, with the inclusion of a recreational centre for all the family and several equipments beyond the sport facilities.
The stadium counts with two areas –the stands and the ring that surrounds them- and has a clear and strong design, with definite geometrics, and a facade conceived as a flying and transparent curtain with the club colors, that are lit at night.
The cover is filled with solar plates, that will produce a great energy saving sheltering all stadium but the corners.
RCD Espanyol farewells the Olympic Stadium stage to go back to a house of their own: a 4 stars stadium designed under a harmonic balance between functionality, economics and aesthetics, which has come true this 2009 and becomes the new home for the perico supporters.
