Every day there are new things at the Mediterranean Games Stadium
What a wonder! The Mediterranean Games Stadium is looking beautiful. Work has begun to close the façade of the Grandstand stands of the Vega de Acá sports venue.
President Turki is making the dream of a fan base that will enjoy a five-star stadium come true, and everyone hopes it will be in the highest category of national football.
The pace of work continues to be spectacular and almost every day there are new things to see in a Mediterranean Games Stadium that has changed in record time. The Preference façade was closed in a few days and the Tribune façade could be completely closed this week.
The Vega de Acá sports venue is another and the fans are surprised when they go to the stadium to see their Almería on match days. The screen that was installed in the central zone of the facade of Tirbuna is a spectacle, where the game of each day is announced.
To meet the deadlines established between the club and the responsible company, the operators do not stop for a second and while the team trains, they also continue with their routine. What is evident is the total change that the installation has given in just a few months from the inside to the outside.
Fans can enjoy a more collected Mediterranean, with a red and white presence in their towns and, what is more important, a team that is fighting for promotion.
LA VOZ y SER has been able to verify the evolution of a field that needed remodeling since it was built for the 2005 Mediterranean Games.
With the concession by the City Council, Almeria residents are getting closer to a real venue to watch football without the athletics tracks, although phase 2 will start when the club achieves promotion and remains firm in the First Division .
