Nou Congost is the "house" of Bàsquet Manresa since it was inaugurated in 1992. Our pavilion has experienced incredible moments, such as the achievement of the league in 1998. Several elements make the Nou Congost a unique field.
It was inaugurated in September 1992, with the celebration of the XIII edition of the Catalan League. The installation took over from the old "Congost" that had been obsolete and did not meet the regulations of the ACB League. It has a capacity for 5,000 spectators and is the headquarters and administrative center of the Bàsquet Manresa. It has press booths, located in the upper part of the grandstand of the box, with capacity to work up to 30 media, a space enabled as a press room, and a VIP area in the forecourt. On the other hand, from the Bàsquet Manresa SAE and the Fomento del Baloncesto Foundation, the strengthening of the Manresa Basketball Museum is being worked on, in the space below the other stand of the Pavilion.
The old "Congost" had been inaugurated in 1968 on the occasion of the club's promotion to the first division. Currently, this facility hosts the training and matches of many of the base teams of the entity. Prior to this pavilion, the club played its matches on an outdoor track located next to the Pujolet football field.
Already before the construction of the Nou Congost, Bàsquet Manresa has had various animation groups during its matches. The fan clubs have always been the engine of the Nou Congost. To this day, they are organized as follows:
The Grada d'Animació was created in 2013 and was born after some members of 4 of the clubs of the club decided to cheer up together at a point in the pavilion. This decision was taken in order to try to get the pavilion to reclaim its atmosphere and thus to enjoy a happy New Year and deliver it with the team.
The particularity of the Grada d'Animació is that it is a grouping of members of several clubs, but that each one of them maintains its philosophy and the ties with each rock. That is, the Grada d'Animació is still a tool to work together.
Since the year 2017 the Grada d'Animació has been renamed Grada d'Animació, this change is due to the desire to be the most inclusive and open to all ages.
The Grada d'Animació has a website where you can find more information: www.gradanimacio.cat
Needless to say, the Grada d'Animació is open to everyone and there is no need to be any rock to come and have fun encouraging the Basketball Manresa.
For many seasons, Bàsquet Manresa has a group of Cheerleaders, which combines training at the Cube gym with performances on match days. Dance, music, leaflets and spectacle in the breaks of matches.
It is the mascot of Bàsquet Manresa since the 2005-2006 season. Llumet is a superhero who encourages the team from the court, and is very friendly to the youngest of the Nou Congost.
