  • Almost 9,000 people will be invited to the celebrations at the Malaga ground on Tuesday, 14 September

The La Rosaleda stadium turns 80 next week and Malaga Football Club wants to "throw a party in style" to celebrate the occasion on Tuesday, 14 September.

There have already been several commemorative events that have taken place throughout this year, such as the publication of a book that tells the history of the ground and the unknown story of the basketball team that was once based at the Club Deportivo Malaga ground.

The stadium reopened to home team spectators just a few weeks ago, thanks to the relaxation of the pandemic restrictions. And, on Tuesday, the club is preparing a big celebration at the ground, starting at 8.30pm, to which it has invited all 9,000 members who have subscribed to the 'Fiel Malaguista' supporters’ club – which has an annual membership fee of 29 euros.

Each enrolled member will receive an email with an invitation to attend the event.

There will be giant screens, live music, special guests and "many more surprises" for a party that, in addition to celebrating the 80th anniversary of the ground, will also be a reunion of the entire Blue and White family since the pandemic. Those who wish to attend will have "until this Friday to register and come to the celebration."
