Granada looking for new home

Granada are in negotiations with Malaga, Sevilla and Real Jaen to ground share from next weekend, as a dispute with their council continues.

The Andalucians do not own current home ground Los Carmenes and an agreement with City authorities that do own it to continue to use it expired weeks ago.

Negotiations on a new agreement between the club and the city have reportedly been going on for some months, but as the club confirmed yesterday, they are yet to reach an agreement and have alternative options.

“The city council authorise us to use the field under impositions that are unacceptable and we cannot accept,” Granada secretary of the board Pedro Gonzalez Segura told reporters.

“Starting from Saturday we cannot use Los Carmenes under the conditions imposed upon us. Granada have spoken with Sevilla, Malaga, Real Jaen and the LFP and there is no problem to use one of their grounds.

“Granada regrets being in this situation because we have made every effort and taken all possible meetings and have made proposals to the council.

“They have not changed their position a single inch and we have reached this situation where we have asked to use the stadium for Sunday’s game with Real Zaragoza.

“That has been authorised, but under a series of impositions, duties and premises that this entity cannot assume.

“We have had no choice but to find a solution because that game is on Sunday, but the board convenes next week to discuss with season ticket holders the very serious problem that we have.

“This Sunday we have no choice but to hold the game at Los Carmenes and abide by the impositions otherwise not possible, but we will not sign the agreement.”
