Based in Andalusia, Almeria play at the Municipal Stadium of the Mediterranean Games, originally built for the 2005 Mediterranean Games. Almería is the driest city in Europe and has been the setting of hundreds of films such as Laurence of Arabia, The Good the Bad and the Ugly and Indiana Jones.
Where to stay
Almería is on the South East Coast of Spain but isn't as touristy as other cities in Andalusia such as Seville, Granada and Malaga. It's also the driest city in Europe so a good winter destination, temperatures regularly hit 40c in summer.
The Municipal Stadium of the Mediterranean Games holds just over 15,000 spectators and due to the athletics track, makeshift stands were built behind the goals in 2012 to keep supporters closer to the pitch.
How to get to the Municipal Stadium of the Mediterranean Games
The stadium is around 2 miles from the city centre and 1.5 miles from the main railway station. Buses on Line 7, operated by ALSA, run regularly and take around 30 minutes from the city centre.
Where to go before an Almería match
