Binéfar - Los Olmos

This is another great example of a club being revitalised by moving to a new stadium. Club Deportivo Binéfar used to play to the west of the town at their shabby El Segalar stadium. They had some good times at the stadium however, being a mainstay of Segunda 2b for much of the 1980's and  1990's. They moved to Los Olmos in 2008 and initially the club struggled, dropping to the Aragon regional leagues for the 2009-10 season.
Spanking new - Binefar's new Estadio Los Olmos
They returned to the Tercera at the beginning of the 2010-11 season and have just finished fourth, qualifying for the play-offs, where they will meet Racing Ferrol. Los Olmos is to the north of the town next to an old athletics ground of the same name. It has a full length, raised cantilevered stand which holds 1250, of which 1032 are seated. Beneath the seating deck lie the changing facilities, a gym and media room. Hard standing on raised banks behind both goals take the capacity to 5,000.
