Estadio Carlos Tartiere

Key facts

Club: Real Oviedo | Opening: 2000 | Capacity: 30,500 seats

History and description

Estadio Carlos Tartiere opened in 2000. It replaced Oviedo’s old stadium with the same name that lacked modern facilities and had seen its capacity reduced due to safety measures.

The stadium officially opened on 20 September 2000 with a friendly between Oviedo and Partizan Belgrade (0-2), but the first match, a league match between Oviedo and Las Palmas (2-2), had already been played three days earlier.

Over the years, Estadio Carlos Tartiere hosted four international games of the Spain national team.

How to get to Estadio Carlos Tartiere

Estadio Carlos Tartiere is located in the east of Oviedo at roughly 2 kilometres from Oviedo’s historic centre and a little less from Oviedo’s main train station, which lies just north of the centre.

The walk from either the centre or train station shouldn’t take longer than half an hour.

There are a few direct trains a day running from Madrid to Oviedo. The journey takes about 4.5 hours. Cercania trains connect with a few local destinations, but for most longer-distance destinations buses are the best choice. From Asturias Airport, the closest to Oviedo, you can get a bus to get to the city.
