Old Ground Locations. Can't Post or Reply Privately

Another one from trying to put my matches onto the Groundhopper App.
I went to Spanish Segunda B side l'Hospitalet in February 1992, and then on to Sarria on the same day.

Both have moved grounds - it is easy enough to enter Sarria on the Groundhopper App, but I cannot identify where l'Hospitalet played back then. I have the venue as Campo Municipal de Deportes, and from Wiki, I can see it was in the Sant Josep area, but I cannot confirm any address on the App as the ground I visited. The current ground was used for baseball in the 1992 Olympics, and was opened for football in 1999

I ticked the old CD Hospitalet ground in 1996, and according to my records, the address is Carrer d'Enric de la Riba, L'Hospitalet. The precise location is uncertain, but there is no doubt that the stadium has since been demolished and built over. My notes also say that it took me five minutes to walk there from Torrassa metro station.

I have tried looking at Google Earth's timeline feature, but it is difficult to get a clear picture on my computer from 2001, the earliest date available. I did take three photos of the ground on my visit and these show the ground surrounded by lots of buildings, which might help me identify the precise location if I were to take a walk around the area on a future trip to Barcelona. I am however inclined to think that it was south of the metro station, and possibly close to the swimming pool which still exists.

Chris is right, just to the west of the swimming pool which was behind the touchline.

Thanks to both of you.
Next question is to find out if I can get groundhopper app to include it. It is one of those that you cannot enter on the map as there are other venues close by.

That's absolutely fantastic! Are there any other 'before and after' football ground photos on that website? I've tried shortening the URL but to no avail.

Not surprisingly, that was exactly what I have done.

However, they do not have a consistent policy and I have found it difficult to get details of grounds to them, when the map function shows them as too close to another ground.

They have also refused one ground (in Malaysia) as "not siginificant enough", despite having both floodlights and dressing rooms. A ground (in St Kitts) with neither was accepted

Well, until now I only added Grounds via the App, but soon will have to do via E-Mail, too.
Friends are doing it via E-Mail regularly and seemed to have success mostly.
