Club: RCD Mallorca | Opening: 1999 | Capacity: 23,142 seats
History and description
Iberostar Estadio, until 2004 called Son Moix, was built for the 1999 Universiade that were held at Palma de Mallorca. The stadium became the new home of Mallorca after the games, replacing the old Estadio Lluis Sitjar that had been home to the club since 1945.
In 2004, the naming rights of the stadium were sold to telecommunications company ONO, which were replaced in 2010 by Iberostar.
Mallorca has never been very happy at Son Moix, which has the stands far off the pitch due to the running track. In 2010, Mallorca therefore revealed plans to build a new proper football stadium, which it hopes to occupy in 2016. However, due to the club’s limited financial possibilities, realisation is far from sure.
Iberostar Estadio is located on the north-western edge of Palma de Mallorca, about three kilometres from the city centre.
The stadium lies adjacent to the city’s ring road. Take exit 7 and follow the signs for Son Moix.
If using public transport, the stadium can be reached with bus 6 (to Can Valero) or 8 (to Son Roca). Take the bus from Estació Intermodal (Plaza de España) on the north-eastern edge of the city centre. Line 8 has the more frequent service. The journey takes about 20 minutes, get off at Son Moix.
Address: C/ Camí dels Reis S/N, 07011 Palma de Mallorca
Eat, drink, and sleep
Iberostar Estadio is located on the edge of the city in an area that is a mix of residential buildings and some large retail. There are hardly any bars and restaurants around, and eating and drinking is better done in Palma’s city centre.
Tickets can also be purchased at the ticket counters (taquillas) at the stadium, in pre-sale or on the day of the match. Mallorca may only sell out the occasional match versus Barcelona or Madrid.
Ticket prices can depend on the opponent, but for a typical match range in price from €25.00 for a seat at the uncovered curve to €50.00 for an upper-tier seat at the main stand. Expect to pay at least €65.00 for the home matches versus Barcelona and Madrid.
