Stadium Journey takes a look at the various stadiums of Italy’s Serie A for the 2018-2019 season.
Stadio San Paolo is the largest sports facility in the city of Naples. For seven years, from 1984-1991, one of the greatest soccer players of the twentieth century, Diego Maradona, was seen on the playing field of El Pibe de Oro. San Paolo Stadium is located in the Fuorigrotta neighborhood, in the western and most populous part of the city of Napoli. Since 1959 it has hosted the home matches of the Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli. It was opened on December 6, 1959 with Napoli playing host to Juventus in a match of the 10th round of Serie A, the top level of Italian football. The match was won 2-1 by the home team (Vitali, Vinicius, Cervato the authors of three goals).
Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore was the first Italian facility owned by a football team. It was built in about eight months, between August 1994 and April 1995, thanks to the commitment of Associazione Calcio Reggiana, a group of companies and banks that purchased hospitality packages, and the fans of the team of Reggio Emilia who signed multi-year subscriptions. The first football match hosted at the facility was Reggiana vs. Juventus (1-2) on the 27th match day of the 1994/1995 Serie A season. Sixteen years later, in September 2011, Juventus Football Club was the second football club in Italy to own its stadium.
Stadio Bentegodi is the main facility for football in the city of Verona. The structure hosts the home matches of AC Chievo Verona and Hellas Verona FC.
The facility is dedicated to Marcantonio Bentegodi, sports enthusiast and citizen benefactor who lived during the nineteenth century. The stadium was inaugurated on December 15, 1963 at the regional derby Hellas Verona-Venezia, played with 25,000 spectators (but the facility was designed to contain 40,000).
