Derelict since 2007, this abandoned stadium in Palma de Mallorca was once the home of RCD Mallorca football club. But when the team decamped to the more modern ONO Estadi in 1999, the 18,000 seat Estadio Lluís Sitjar was relegated to a secondary ground.

RCD’s reserve team called the stadium home until they also moved to the club’s training ground Son Bibiloni, north of Palma. In 2007, more than six decades after the stadium opened in 1945, Estadio Lluís Sitjar was left to decay.

Estadio Lluís Sitjar is a sorry sight today. The goal posts and seats remain installed, with the name of the ground’s former occupier ‘Mallorca’ still visible across them in faded red letters. The unloved football pitch, once the pride of its ground staff, lies weed-strewn and overgrown, dried out by the fierce Mediterranean sun.

Visible on Google Earth, the area immediately to the north and east of the abandoned stadium is wasteland. Surely it can’t be long before this real estate, and that on which Estadio Lluís Sitjar is built, is redeveloped?
