Estadio Municipal Carlos Tartiere, also known as Nuevo Carlos Tartiere (English: New Carlos Tartiere), is a multi-use stadium in Oviedo, Spain. With a capacity of 30,500 seats, it is the 17th-largest stadium in Spain and the largest in Asturias. The Nuevo Carlos Tartiere replaced the former stadium of the same name built in 1932, as the home venue of Real Oviedo.
The first stone of the construction was placed on 18 June 1998 and the first match played in this stadium took place on September 17, 2000, a Primera División match between Real Oviedo and Las Palmas. The stadium was officially opened on September 20, 2000, with a friendly match between Real Oviedo and FK Partizan.
The new stadium has been severally criticized, especially its location, which does not have adequate accesses and emergency exits for large attendances. Also the pitch is hard to maintain, due to its moist environment and the lack of sunlight, especially during the winter. In addition, the large openings in the facade, which makes it a cold stadium, are also subject to criticism, as well as its lack of color, with predominance of gray both inside, by the seats, and outside, by the facade of concrete not covered. That is the reason why it is popularly also known as La Formigonada (the great concrete in Asturian). Despite these facts, Emilio Llano, one of the architects of the stadium, has defended the stadium and claimed that "the problem could be in the grass and not in the subsoil".
On 24 May 2009, Real Oviedo beat the attendance record in a Tercera División game with 27,214 spectators. It was in the first leg of the 2009 Group Winners play-off against RCD Mallorca B, and the blues won by 1–0.
The first international game was held on 23 December 2000, when the autonomous team Asturias played a friendly game against Macedonia. 25,000 people assisted to the game, which finished 1–0 with a goal of Juanele.
Spain played twice in the new Carlos Tartiere. The first one, on 6 June 2001, against Bosnia and Herzegovina in a game which finished 4–1 for The red one and the second, on 12 September 2007, against Latvia, finishing with a 2–0 win.
