The Estadi Municipal de Futbol de L'Hospitalet is a football stadium located in the Feixa Llarga district of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Catalonia, Spain. It was opened in 1999. It has a capacity of 6740 seated spectators.[2] Currently it is the home of football club CE L'Hospitalet. The stadium is some 700 metres (2,300 ft) from the Hospital de Bellvitge metro station, on line L1 of the Barcelona Metro.

It was inaugurated as a football field in 1999, after the reconversion of the old Olympic Baseball Stadium, which hosted the competition of this sport at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.

It is part of a municipal sports complex known as Feixa Llarga - which includes other facilities such as a rugby field and a sports center - and that is why the Municipal Stadium is sometimes referred to as Feixa Llarga. However, the Estadio Municipal de L'Hospitalet should not be confused with the Campo Municipal de la Feixa Llarga, headquarters of the UD Unificación Bellvitge, which is located a few meters away, within the same sports complex.

Prior usage[edit]

L'Hospitalet de Llobregat Baseball Stadium was originally a baseball stadium.[3] The venue, opened in July 1991 and seating 2500, was one of two used for baseball competitions at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, including the finals.[4]

During the 1992 games, seating was expanded to just under 7000.[3]
