The name Estadio Municipal de Butarque originated in honor of Our Lady of Butarque, the patron saint of Leganés. It was built to replace the old field Estadio Luis Rodríguez de Miguel in the Community of Madrid and to support the then rising popularity of football in Spain. The stadium is located in the outskirts of Madrid, part of the greater conurbation in a satellite-city, and has an annex field of artificial grass mostly used for reserves sides training.
The stadium’s primary tenant is La Liga’s Club Deportivo Leganés. But years before that, the site opened its doors for a Liga Adelante match between its previous home team and Xerez XD. The fight ended with a draw. Apart from hosting C.D Leganes home games in the La Liga, the stadium has also held concerts and festivals such as the Festimad, an alternative rock cultural event.
