History and description

Angelo Massimino Stadium, formerly known as Stadio Cibali, opened on the 27th of November 1937 with a league match between Catania and Foggia. The oval-shaped stadium initially consisted of two stands on each side, and a one-tiered Curva Nord. It had a seating capacity of about 20,000 places.

In the following decades and in the 1960s, Catania considered building a new stadium, as their biggest complaint were the stadium's poor sightlines due to the running track. However, the new stadium never materialised.

The Stadio Cibali underwent its first redevelopments in 1982, when new stands were built and cover was added to the main stand. The Curva Nord was renovated and expanded in 1987. This increased capacity to about 35,000 people.

The Stadio Cibali got renovated in the early 1990s in preparation for the 1997 Universiade that would be hosted by the province of Sicily. The stadium was renamed in 2002 to Stadio Angelo Massimino in honor of former club president Angelo Massimino.

Recently, capacity has been significantly reduced due to safety measures. Catania have recently expressed the desire to build a new stadium, but there are currently no concrete plans.

How to get to Stadio Angelo Massimino

The Stadio Angelo Massimino is located in north-west Catania?s historic city center about 2 kilometers from Piazza Duomo, but less than 1.5 kilometers from the more northern Piazza Stesicoro. Walking to the stadium will likely take only 30 minutes. The stadium is located in a densely populated urban area and may be difficult to locate by car.

If using public transportation, catch bus 4-7 from the central rail station. Get off at Piazza Spedini. The bus can also be boarded at Piazza Stesicoro. Bus service only runs once an hour.

Passengers should get off at Via Cifali and Via Beccario and walk a few minutes to the bus stop. The bus will then pass through the historic centre.

Address: Piazza Spedini, 95125 Catania

Eat, drink, and sleep near Stadio Angelo Massimino

The Stadio Angelo Massimino is located in a densely populated urban area, which means that there are some common Italian local bars and restaurants in the vicinity, though overall it is not a particularly attractive area and there is not much reason to head to the stadium much in advance of the match. There is one hotel located close to Stadio Angelo Massimino - Casa Tina Maugeri. Slightly further away, but still comfortably at walking distance are the well-rated B&B Maccalè, Best Western Mediterraneo, and Liberty Hotel.
