More than 46,000 spectators, over 80% in the stadium of Vallecas and much higher than Camp Nou (52%) or Santiago Bernabéu (59%)
Spectacular! There is no better adjective to qualify the response of the fans of Mestalla at its premiere in LaLiga. The 46,174 spectators, 95% stand out with a lot of difference compared to the percentage of attendance of the rest of the stadiums on this inaugural day of the championship.
Despite being disputed in August, with more than 30 degrees, and on Monday ... the energy of Valencianism again played a decisive role. As captain Dani Parejo pointed out, "I am proud of the team's work and very grateful to Mestalla, who supported us until the last second. You were spectacular! "
The excellent attendance rate at the Mestalla contrasts with the entries registered at the Camp Nou to see FC Barcelona, with 52,356 spectators, 52% of its capacity, or the Santiago Bernabéu, which remained at 59%. Records very far from the 95% reached in Mestalla, followed by Vallecas stadium, which on its return to LaLiga was filled to 80% of its capacity, with 11,626 spectators.
