Binéfar – Los Olmos

Club Deportivo Binéfar hail from the province of Huesca, some 75km south-east of the provincial capital, and 100km east of the Aragonsé capital, Zaragoza. Founded in 1922, it was one of the founding members of the Aragón Football Federation. The club played at a variety of grounds in those early years, such as the Campo del Cuadrao, Campo de Toyas & the Campo de la Aigüera. The Civil War inflicted caused widespread destruction to many urban areas in Aragón, and Binéfar was no exception. Whilst CD Binéfar resumed footballing activities in 1940, it was not until September 1943 that they found a new, permanent home in the Campo El Segalar. This was situated on the north eastern edge of town, close to the main railway line between Huesca and Lleida. El Segalar played host to the club’s most successful era, when between 1982 and 2003, 13 seasons were spent in Segunda B.

Campo El Segalar

El Segalar served as home until 2008, by which time it had become encircled by housing and the town’s sports pavilion & swimming pool. It featured a full-length stand of six rows of green & white seats on its west side, a shallow covered terrace at the northern end, that backed on to the Calle Ordesa, and a fairly substantial open terrace at the southern end of the ground. There were no spectator facilities on the eastern side of the ground due to the close proximity of the municipal sports pavilion. CD Binéfar played its last match at El Segalar at the beginning of the 2008-09 season. The pitch is now parkland, but you can still see the old southern terrace and the raised floor of the old stand, minus its roof.

CD Binéfar moved to their new home of Los Olmos in the autumn of 2008, where their poor form continued, avoiding relegation with a 2-2 draw in the final game of the season. Poor results continued, and the club dropped the Aragón Regional Preferente for the 2009-10 season. They returned to the Tercera at the beginning of the 2010-11 and apart from dropping back to the Regional Preferente for the 2014-15 season, have remained in the Tercera. Los Olmos is a sports complex and park area to the north of the town. It has a full length, raised cantilevered stand which holds 1250, of which 1032 are seated. Beneath the seating deck lie the changing facilities, a gym and media room. Raised banks behind both goals allow scope for the capacity to be raised to 5,000.
