The Municipal Stadium of Bintaufa (Estadio Bintaufa), now home of Sporting Mahon, is arguably the highest profile stadium on the island.

The Copa del Rey is the Spanish version of the FA Cup, and it is now 10 years since a Menorcan side featured.
Estadi Mahones is the home of CD Menorca, the original Menorcan club. It was opened on April 27, 1924. The first game saw Menorca FC take on Iberia.
Only one Menorcan club has ever reached the Segunda Division B, Sporting Mahones, but in 2015, CE Mercadal came closer than anyone.
