Getafe moved into the 17,000-seater Coliseum Alfonso Perez in 1998 from their old and too small Estadio Las Margaritas. The new name was taken from a locally-born former Spain international striker, despite the fact he never played for his hometown club, or even at the ground.

The official opening took place with a three-team tournament between Borussia Dortmund, Feyenoord and Atletico Madrid. After promotion to the top flight in 2004 the south end of the stadium was extended to accommodate a second tier and a new roof was installed on the main stand.
