History and description

The stadium was built to provide Napoli with a permanent home after their old home, Stadio Partenopeo, had been destroyed by air raids in the Second World War. After World War II, the club played at various temporary homes, but none of them satisfied them. With the rapidly increasing fanbase of the club, a larger stadium was needed.

The Stadio San Paolo officially opened on December 6, 1959 with a match between Napoli and Juventus. At its opening, the stadium could only hold 87,500 spectators due to its uncovered nature. Most of these fans were standing.

The stadium was modernized for the European Championships in 1980. It hosted three first round group matches and the match for third place between Czechoslovakia and Italy (1-1).

The Stadio San Paolo was selected as one of the playing venues for the 1990 World Cup, and as a result underwent a major renovation. The stadium was built with a third tier, and after conversion into an all-seater, its capacity was reduced to about 76,000 seats.

During the World Cup, Stadio San Paolo hosted two first round group matches, the round of 16 match, the quarter-final between England and Cameroon (3-2), and the semi-final between Argentina and Italy (1-1).

The stadium slowly decayed after the World Cup, and lack of maintenance eventually lead to a temporary closure. Parts of the stadium were subsequently kept closed, thereby reducing capacity.

With recent successes, refurbishments have been performed at the stadium that keep it eligible for European matches.

The state of the stadium has not improved and thus Napoli have retained their ambition to either move to a new stadium or extensively redevelop Stadio San Paolo. Earlier plans have all failed, but recently the club has started talks with the city of Napoli again to come to a solution.

Slightly faster is the metro. One can take line 2 from the central station and several points near the center. Get off at stop Campi Flegrei station. The most popular stop on line 6 is also at a walking distance from the stadium.

Relevant Internet links

The websites of SSC Napoli and Inaples are official websites of the Naples tourist board, while Metro.na.it is a website dedicated to information about the Naples metro. Trenitalia is a website with train times and fares. I should have checked to make sure that most passionate supporters at Curva A stand use the Curva A stand. The overall experience was not bad; the stadium is old but very big. The attendance was shocking (at 5,000). The Metro station was closed before the game finished, so coming back was difficult. I wouldn't go there again.

The attendance was shocking- only 5000 people showed up. The metro station was closed before the game finished, so coming back afterwards was not easy. I would not go there again.

The Stadium Guide Official Review writes: "We had no problem obtaining a ticket for Napoli. There are two club shops around the stadium. The one on the Distinti side also sells tickets. As previously stated, Listicket is no longer an option for tourists as you have to possess a membership card for the relevant club."

We received the following information from Giorgio Pin:
