Deportivo Alavés History

After Athletic Club of Bilbao and Real Sociedad de Futbol of San Sebastián, it is considered to be the third most successful team in the Basque Country. Its greatest accomplishment came in 2001, the year it made its debut in European play.

That year, it was one of the finalists in the 2001 UEFA Cup Final against Liverpool, but it lost the game by a score of 5–4 in overtime due to a golden goal. In 2017, the club competed in the final of the Copa del Rey but was defeated by Barcelona by a score of 3–1.

The home uniform of the team consists of a shirt with white and blue stripes, blue shorts, and white socks. It trains in various locations throughout Ibaia, including the Mendizorrotza Stadium, which has a capacity of 19,840 seats, and uses other venues in the city for its home games.

Stadium

It first opened its doors on April 27, 1924, making it the third oldest football stadium in the Spanish Professional Football League, following El Molinón and Mestalla in terms of age.

The stadium had a number of facelifts during the course of its history. The most significant change was an expansion that took place in 1999. At that time, additional stands were built in each of the stadium’s four corners, bringing the total number of available seats to 19,840.

In December of 2016, the club president, Josean Querejeta, made public a plan to renovate and enlarge the stadium, with the possibility of increasing its capacity to 28,000. In June of 2020, the club announced that the project will be put on hold for at least one year as a direct result of the pandemic’s negative impact on Spain’s economy.
