Spanish football club Marbella FC has detailed plans for a new 18,000-seat stadium that would be built on the site of its current home ground.

Marbella FC, which plays in the Segunda División B, the third tier of Spanish football, is teaming up with the city council on the project.

The stadium would feature 2,000 underground parking spaces and incorporate a commercial and hotel area with swimming pools for guests.

Óscar Ribot, chief executive of Best of You, which has managed the club since November 2018, said that the stadium would be an “urban jewel” and serve as a “symbol of the city”.

The project will require approval from the city council and the relevant political parties before it can move forward. The cost and timeline of the project have not been disclosed.

Palco23 reported that the stadium would also be used for international meetings and other leisure and cultural events.

Marbella FC currently plays at the Estadio Municipal Antonio Lorenzo Cuevas, which has a capacity of 7,300. The new project would result in the removal of the athletics track from the current site.

Marbella FC missed out on promotion to the second-tier Segunda División after a play-off loss to Peña Deportiva earlier this month.
