History and description

The Stadio San Nicola was built between 1987 and 1990 with the intention of being a playing venue for the 1990 World Cup. The stadium was designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, who called it "the spaceship?" because of the similarities in shape. The original design did not include an athletics track, but this was later added at the request of Italian Olympic Committee CONI.

The stadium has a capacity of just over 36,000 people and is named after San Nicola, the patron saint of Bari.

During the 1990 World Cup, San Nicola Stadium hosted a total of five matches, among which three first round group matches, the round of 16 match between Czechoslavakia and Costa Rica (4-1), and the match for third place between Italy and England (2-1).

The stadium hosted the European Cup final one year later in 1991 between Crvena Zvezda and Olympique de Marseille (0-0).

The most characteristic aspect of the stadium is that there are 26 petals on the upper tier.

Stadio San Nicola has turned out to be much too large for Bari, and a lack of maintenance has resulted in a heavily deteriorated state. Bari have therefore considered redeveloping the stadium into a smaller version, but are lacking the funds to do so.

The stadium underwent a renovation in 2020 including the replacement of the upper tier seats.

How to get to Stadio San Nicola

The Stadio San Nicola is located near the southern edge of Bari, almost eight kilometers from the historic center and five and a half kilometers from the central railway station. The stadium is located just south of the Tangenziale di Bari, the city's ring road. Take exit 10B to get to it. The stadium is signposted coming from the west.

Line 71 is faster but stops further away from the stadium on the other side of the motorway and requires another 20 minutes walking. Bus 20 only stops at the stadium on its way back to wait for it to turn back or get off and take a bus in the other direction once past the stadium.

Address: Stadio San Nicola , Strada Torrebella, 70124 Bari
