The 29,000-capacity La Rosaleda Stadium (The Rose Garden) is a two-tiered bowl with a great atmosphere on match day. Located to the north of the city, the stadium is well-served by public transport.
If you’re travelling by car, you should be able to find a free parking space in La Rosaleda Shopping Centre Car Park – a couple of hundred metres away. Failing that, there is usually plenty of space to park on local streets.
For most games, getting seats on match day is generally fairly easy – the obvious exceptions being the FC Barcelona and Real Madrid games.
When considering the list of home fixtures and ticket availability and pricing, it’s worth bearing in mind that the Spanish Football Association only release information regarding which games are to be televised one week before the fixture. So when you are planning your visit, you need to ensure that you are in Málaga between the Saturday afternoon and the Monday morning for your chosen weekend. Confirmed kick-off times first appear at the Spanish FA Website.
If you can’t get to the match, you can always watch live coverage of most English and Spanish football matches in many bars around the Axarquía.
