History and description

The Stadio Artemio Franchi officially opened on 13 September 1931 with a match between Fiorentina and Admira Wien. However, it took until 1932 for the stadium to be completely finished. The stadium was initially called Stadio Giovanni Berta and already resembled the stadium of today. It had a capacity of about 45,000 places.

In 1934, the Stadio Berta played host to one first round match and the quarter-final between Italy and Spain during the 1934 World Cup.

After the Second World War, the stadium was renamed Stadio Comunale, which it kept until 1993.

The addition of multiple metal stands brought capacity to about seventy thousand places in the 1950s, though some fans got hurt when one such stand collapsed in 1957.

Stadio Comunale hosted one of the two semi-finals at the 1968 European Championships. Just over 20,000 spectators saw Yugoslavia beat England 1-0.

The stadium changed very little in the next decades until it got selected as a playing venue for the 1990 World Cup, and a major refurbishment was required.

Stadio Comunale hosted three group matches and the quarter-final between Argentina and Yugoslavia during the 1990 World Cup.

First plans were presented in 2008, but after multiple delays and changes, the current plans were presented in March 2017 for the construction of a new 40,000-seater stadium. However, there is still no green light and no concrete timelines exist at the moment.

How to get to Stadio Artemio Franchi

Stadio Artemio Franchi is located in the north-east of Florence, about 2 kilometers from the historic city centre. The walk from the Duomo in the historic centre takes about half an hour. The stadium is located only two blocks from the Campo di Marte train station, which is primarily served by regional trains. A change at Florence's main Santa Maria Novella station may be necessary.

Alternatively, one can take bus 17 from Santa Maria Novella or Piazza San Marco (which lies three blocks north of the Cathedral).

If arriving by car from the Milan-Napels motorway, take exit Firenze Sud and follow the signs to Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Address: Viale Manfredo Fanti 4, 50137 Firenze
