Ground Info The Estadio Municipal de Balaídos, known as Abanca-Balaídos for sponsorship reasons, is an all-seater stadium in Vigo, Spain. The stadium is the home of Celta Vigo, and accommodates a total of 29,000 spectators. In September 1924, a group of local businessmen took the first steps towards the construction of the stadium by buying the 75,000 m2 on which the stadium would be built. The first job they faced was diverting the Lagares river. Two years later, the businessmen founded the Stadium de Balaídos, S.A. company, which would carry out the actual construction work on the new stadium. The architect of the stadium was Jenaro de la Fuente. The stadium is accessed through 25 gates, numbered 0-24, distributed across the four stands that make up the stadium; Gates 0-7 are located in the Tribuna stand, Gates 8-16 in the Marcador end, Gates 17-20 in the Río stand and Gates 20-24 in the Gol end. In 2012, as part of the renovations made to the exterior of the stadium the club decided to name each of these gates after a notable player.
HonoursReal Club Celta de Vigo , commonly known as Celta de Vigo, is a football club based in Vigo, Galicia, that competes in La Liga.
Nicknamed Os Celestes (The Sky Blues), the club was founded on 23 August 1923 following the merger of two Vigo-based teams. The club's home stadium is Balaídos, which seats 29,000 spectators.

The club's name is derived from the Celts, a people who once lived in the region. Its main rival is fellow Galician club Deportivo La Coruña, with whom it contests the Galician derby.

Celta have never won the league title nor Copa del Rey, although they have reached the final three times in the latter. The club finished in their best-ever position of fourth in 2002–03, qualifying for the 2003–04 UEFA Champions League, where they were eliminated by Arsenal in the round of 16. In the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League, Celta reached the semi-finals for the first time, losing to Manchester United.
