Sitting on the terraces on a warm evening in Málaga is a real pleasure for football fans. No wonder so many ex-pat British residents of the Costa del Sol have become season ticket holders there. Only around 3,000 Málaga football tickets go on general sale for matches at their redeveloped La Rosaleda Stadium. The stadium is now all seater with a capacity of 29,500 but around 25,000 season ticket holders (‘socios’) take up most of the match tickets. It’s very difficult to get tickets for matches against FC Barcelona and Real Madrid but for lesser games you can often buy tickets about a week before the game at the stadium shop or in the club shop in the Larios shopping centre in Málaga. If any tickets remain on the day of the match they will go on sale at the stadium shop.

Málaga Kick-Off Times
Most Malaga matches kick-off at some time on Sunday evening although officially there could be matches on the Saturday night or on the very odd occasion on a Monday evening. Midweek fixtures are mainly on a Wednesday with the Tuesday and Thursday also an outside possibility. The Liga de Fútbol Profesional Website confirms kick-off day and time just over a week before the game. Otherwise just check the Málaga Club de Fútbol website for updates.
La Rosaleda Stadium
Getting There: The Málaga football stadium lies less than 3km from the Álameda Principal in the city centre. It’s only a short distance off the MA-20 road through Málaga (see map below) so is easily accessible from the resorts of the Costa del Sol. Parking is the shopping centre next to the stadium is a possibility but getting away aftervthe match takes ages. There is some street parking but local police have a ball issuing tickets at some matches. It’s easier (and allows you to have a beer) to either book a seat on a coach being with the Málaga Supporters Club who are mainly British ex-pats who live on the Costa del Sol and follow Málaga CF. Otherwise get the train to Málaga which stops at Málaga Centro-Álameda and you can walk to the stadium in about 15 minutes. The number 17 bus from the Álameda Principal also goes to the stadium.
