History and description
Estadio El Alcoraz opened on 16 January 1972 with a match between Huesca and Deportivo Aragon. It had been the third ground of Huesca and was named after a battle that had taken place in the region in 1096.
The stadium underwent a large redevelopment during the 2008/09 season including the enlargement of the main stand, the construction of a roof on the opposite stand, and improvements to the stadium’s facilities.
Following Huesca’s promotion to the top league in 2018, El Alcoraz got expanded from 5,500 to 7,683 seats by expanding the north stand.
