The stadium has a capacity of 25,000 and is located around 3 miles from the historic centre so allow an hours walk which gives you the opportunity to walk alongside the glorious beach, Playa de la Victoria.
Alternatively Bus 1 runs frequently from Avenida Del Puerto to Estadio and takes around 20 minutes.
Where to go before a Cádiz match
If you take the gorgeous walk from the city centre to the stadium alongside Playa de la Victoria, there are numerous bars along the way and you can pretty much take your pick of one you like the look of.
