Formerly known as El Madrigal, the Estadio de la Cerámica is a football stadium located in Villarreal, Spain. It is currently the home ground of first division La Liga team Villarreal CF. The stadium can seat 24,890 people, a number that is half the population of the city of Villarreal.
The stadium opened in June 1923 and first held a football match between Castellon and Cervantes. Back then, the stadium was under the name Campo del Villarreal, changing names two years later in honor to the rural lands on which it stands. It was only renamed recently to Estadio de la Cerámica as a nod to the local industry.
The Estadio de la Cerámica first underwent remodeling before the 1952/53 season. The size of the pitch was increased from 103.9 x 71.1 yards to 114.8 to 71.1 yards to match the standards then. It went to a few more renovations that introduced a bigger capacity and additional sections such as a VIP sector, a roof, and several stands.
