History and Description
Estadio Municipal Butarque was built in 1998 to replace Leganes’ old Estadio Luis Rodríguez de Miguel. The stadium officially opened on 14 February 1998 with a league match between Leganes and Jerez (1-1).
The stadium is named of the local patron of the city of Leganes, Nuestra Senora de Butarque.
Estadio Municipal Butarque could initially hold 8,138 seats, but this was expanded to 10,958 following the club’s promotion to La Liga in 2016.
How to get to Estadio Municipal Butarque
Estadio Municipal Butarque is located in the small city of Leganes, which is part of the greater Madrid metropolitan area. The stadium lies about 1.5 kilometres north of Leganes’ centre, while it’s about 10 kilometres to central Madrid, which lies further north.
The stadium can be reached by either train or metro. Take train (Cercania) line C-5 from Atocha railway station in the direction of Fuenlabrada or Humanes and get off at either Zarzaquemada (10-minute walk) or Leganes (15-minute walk) station. The journey takes about 25 minutes, trains run every 10 minutes.
Alternatively, one can take a metro to Leganes Central station, which is on line 12 (southern loop). From central Madrid a change is required at Puerta del Sur station, which is the last stop on line 10 that runs past Plaza de Espana and the northern part of central Madrid. The journey takes a lot longer than by train, roughly 50 minutes from Plaza de Espana.
