Estadio Bernardo Gil

Estadio Bernardo "Candela" Gil is a Football stadium in San Miguelito, Panamá which hosts ANAPROF team Sporting San Miguelito, Chepo F.C. and Plaza Amador and Primera A teams Orión and Paraiso F.C..

The stadium was formerly known as 'Estadio 28 de Diciembre which had a small 90x57 meter field of mixed sand and gravel, which made it hard for players to compete and therefore could not be used for ANAPROF games. In 2007, in a joint effort from the Panamanian government and the national sport institute (INDE), they were allowed to spend $298,880 in installing artificial turf to the field and increasing its size to 98x60 m. The stadium later was renamed for Bernardo Gil, a pioneer who managed to expropriate the land for use as a football stadium.

The first official game in the renovated stadium was played on Sunday September 23, 2007 when Sporting '89 tied 1-1 with Atlético Chiriquí in the ANAPROF championship. The first goal in the candela was scored by Eladio Mitre of Sporting '89.
