The Molinón Stadium is the football pitch where Real Sporting de Gijón plays. The stadium is close to the city centre and can seat 30,000 spectators. It owes its name to the huge mill (molino) that was once located on the site. El Molinón is Spain’s oldest stadium, since there are records that as early as 1908, these grounds were used to stage football games. In addition to football, it has hosted huge concerts, with performances from stars like: Tina Turner, Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and others.
