San Mamés is a football stadium that was opened during its initial phase of construction on 16 September 2013 to replace the old San Mamés. It is used primarily by Athletic Club de Bilbao for football matches, though it offers complementary services, including a sports innovation centre and a sports medicine centre, an underground running track and a municipal sports complex. It will also be used as a venue for large-capacity concerts, just like its predecessor. The stadium can hold 53,289 (expandable by 2,000, according to architect César Azcárate), and is listed as a category-4 stadium by UEFA, the highest rating. This means it can host European Championship games and Europa League finals, but not Champions League finals, which require more seats. Source: Wikipedia
