Club: Club Santos Laguna | Opening: 2009 | Capacity: 30,000 seats
History and description
Estadio Corona officially opened on the 11th of November 2009 with a concert of Ricky Martin and a friendly between Santos Laguna and Brazilian side Santos.
The new stadium replaced Santos’ old stadium with the same name, and came at a cost of US$ 100 million.
Estadio Corona has a total of 112 suites, and can be easily expanded to a capacity of 40,000 seats. It is part of a larger complex featuring bars, restaurants, a gym, offices, and the club’s youth academy. The club hopes to expand this with a hotel with pitch view and a shopping mall.
In 2011, a shooting took place outside the stadium during a match between Santos and Morelia. This led to panic inside the stadium, but no one was hurt or injured.
Estadio Corona is located north of the city of Torreón along the Carretera San Pedro-Torreón. It lies about 5 kilometres outside the city limits and 12 kilometres from Torreón’s city centre.
Address: Carretera San Perdro Torreón km 7, Torreón
Ticket are generally also available on the gate on the day of the match. Santos Laguna does sell out the occasional high-profile match though.
Ticket prices typically range from MX$ 130.00 for a seat behind the goal to MX$ 500.00 for a central seat at the main stand. Other seats at the sides tend to go for between MX$ 240.00 and MX$ 380.00.
