Name

Estadi de l'Espanyol a Cornellà.jpg

The stadium is currently known as the Estadi Cornellà-El Prat because it is located on the borders of the municipalities Cornellà and El Prat. The club hopes it will be able to find a buyer for the naming rights for the stadium. After the death of captain Daniel Jarque, many have proposed that the stadium should be renamed in his honor. However, the club has not taken a definite stance on the subject yet.[1]

Inauguration

Espanyol defeated Liverpool F.C. 3-0 in the stadium's inaugural match on August 2, 2009. The goals were scored by Luis García and Ben Sahar. Curiously, Luis García scored his goal in the end that lies in El Prat and Ben Sahar scored his goals in the Cornellà end.[2]
