Living in the shadow of one of the world’s greatest football clubs can never be easy yet RCD Espanyol consistently manage to finish in the mid-table of Spain’s La Liga largely oblivious to their better known neighbours over at the Nou Camp. They play their home games at the 40,500 capacity Estadi Cornellà-El Prat where they moved to in 2009 from the Olympic Stadium of Montjuic having been forced to sell their own stadium at Sarría in September 1997 to wipe out the club’s debts.
Whilst the vast majority of football fans visiting the Catalan capital want to see FC Barcelona there are still plenty tourists who try to catch an Espanyol game whilst they’re in town. You can usually get Espanyol football tickets on the gate when they are playing lower league opposition but for matches against some of the big teams it’s well worth ordering them in advance.
Getting to Estadio Cornella El Prat
Espanyol’s football stadium is located in the suburb of Cornellà de Llobregat which is about 12km south-west of Barcelona’s Plaça de Catalunya. By Metro (line 5) or tram you can travel to Cornellà Centre (Metro i TRAM) then walk about 15 minutes to the stadium. To get within a 5 minute walk of the stadium you can take one of the FGC commuter trains (Line 8) to Cornellà-Riera from Plaça Espanya. Taxis are always available to take you to the ground.

RCD Espanyol Kick-Off Times: The majority of RCD Espanyol games take place on a Sunday evening. During the course of a season there will be the occasional Saturday night match and midweek fixtures are announced when the calendar for the season is published in July but without stating a confirmed day. Final confirmation of day and time of matches is only made public around 10 days before the match but this shouldn’t affect you provided you’re in Barcelona on the Saturday and Sunday night. To check kick-off times in the days leading up to a game just have a look at the Spanish FA Website which is the first place they’ll appear or go directly to the Espanyol Website.
