For our family trip to Spain everyone had certain criteria of what they HAD to experience. Even if the rest of the family wasn’t 100% keen on the activity we joined in, because we knew it would be reciprocated for others.
In this case, football stadium tour hopping was one way of getting my oldest to do other activities which he definitely wouldn’t be up for unless there was a reward.
La Rosaleda Surprised Us
When you visit the top teams in the world, i.e. Real Madrid and Barca, you expect to see the best of the best. Since I don’t have any reference points of what football stadium tours are to be like, I would imagine they were top notch.
However, by the time we arrived to Malaga’s Football Club we did have a reference point – Bernabeu. So I can genuinely say I can compare it to the best in the world.
And you know what?
It deserves to be in the same class.
OK, so the team itself is no where near as fantastic and skilled as Real Madrid or FC Barcelona, but the stadium definitely was. Minus 50,000 seats (Real Madrid can fit 85,000 people per game, while Malaga only has 35,000).
The layout of the tour was great with plenty of walks down history lane.
Visits to the lockers and press room.
What we loved most was that it didn’t feel like a huge conglomerate or business machine as the others. It was more personal.
And at the end, we preferred this one to the world’s best.
