Viladecans was chosen as one of the two subsites where baseball competitions for the Olympic Games would be held, along with L’Hospitalet de Llobregat.

For this reason the new baseball stadium was built, its works were made in two phases: earthworks, started in 1985, and the actual construction of the stadium, started in 1989. The stadium has a capacity for 1,500 spectators and was equipped with a play area, locker rooms, a clubhouse and a game field. The construction of the stadium also involved making public works of adaptation to the land around.

Viladecans is located on the coast, 20 km southwest of Barcelona. Since the Middle Ages the population is traditionally devoted to the agriculture and suffered a considerable increase in population in the sixties of the twentieth century as a result of the implementation of new industries such as metallurgy, construction, food, chemical and textile.

Sports Tradition

Baseball discipline is deeply rooted in Viladecans as it began practicing in 1945. The little need for infrastructure required by this sport helped in the dissemination among the lower classes of the population. Currently the city has a team playing in the first national category and has won several major titles.
