RCDE Stadium, also known as Estadi Cornellà-El Prat (Catalan pronunciation: [əsˈtaði kurnəˈʎa əɫ ˈpɾat]; Spanish: Estadio Cornellà-El Prat [esˈtaðjo korneˈʎa el ˈpɾat]) is an all-seater football stadium on the outskirts of Cornellà de Llobregat and El Prat de Llobregat, in the wider Barcelona urban area (Catalonia, Spain). It took three years to build and cost approximately €60 million. Completed in the summer of 2009, it was awarded as Venue of the Year getting the Stadium Business Awards on 18 June 2010 in Dublin. The stadium has a capacity of 40,500. It is the new home of RCD Espanyol and replaced their previous stadium, the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys. It is the eighth stadium in the club's history.
The stadium is known as the Estadi Cornellà-El Prat because it is located on the borders of the municipalities Cornellà and El Prat. The club hopes to find a buyer for the naming rights for the stadium. After the death of club captain Daniel Jarque, many[who?] have proposed that the stadium should be renamed in his honour. However, the club has not taken a definite stance on the subject.
