The 17,895-capacity Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto is a football stadium in El Llano neighborhood of Alajuela, Costa Rica, which is the home of Liga Deportiva Alajuelense. It opened in the year 1942.

‘Liga Deportiva Alajuelense’ further stated that prior to the May 8th meeting, a series of meetings related to designs and finances will take place on April 17th and April 24th as well as on May 2nd.

Talks regarding a new home for the club have been going on since 2018. A commission was set up to look into the feasibility of rehabilitating ‘The Lions’ present home facility but then recommended that a new arena should instead be built. The suggested plot in the Turrúcares district was selected due to its cost, streamlined communication network and proximity to fans and the club’s existing facilities.
