This thread is dedicated to projects of renovations, restructurations and constructions of new stadiums in Italy. I will present here the projects that are currently on the way of being achieved and those who have been proposed to city councils. I have removed the plans that are frozen and those that seem unrealistic.

ACF Fiorentina

ACF Fiorentina is currently planning to build a stadium of about 40 000 seats. The location of the stadium has been agreed and works are supposed to start before the end of 2012. It will cost between 180 and 200 million euros.




AS Bari

Plans for the restructuration of the Stadio San Nicola. They plan to remove the athletic track, reduce the capacity from 58 000 to 40 000 seats. It will cost about 70 millions. The club wants to get it done and start works soon as they are currently midtable in Serie B and think that this project will be essential to make it back to Serie A.

It will cost about 250 million euros and will have 26-28 000 seats. They hope to start construction soon and have it ready for the 2013-2014 season. They will also build a shopping mall and restaurants next to the stadium, much like ours.

Cagliari Calcio

Plan for the construction of a new stadium, the stadio San Caterina.




It will have 23 600 seats and will be ready for the 2013-2014 season. Works will start soon and it will cost only about 40 million euros. The club has already started building the stadium in mainland Italy and they will bring it to Cagliari by boat. This is why it will only take about 6 months to build the stadium once Cellino, the president will have the authorization of the city to begin work on the agreed site.

Calcio Catania

Plans for a new 30 000-35 000 seats stadium have been unveiled by the club. It will cost between 80 and 100 million euros. It looks pretty nice. They plan to start the works in 2013 and it will take year and a half to build, so it will be probably ready for the 2014-2015 season.




Hellas Verona

Plans for the construction of a new stadium of 30 000 seats, which will cost 200 million euros.

Good to see Bologna plan to keep the tower thing to remind everyone of the stadium's fascist roots.

I like the Stadio Olimpico as i think it has a colesseum feel to it which is part of Rome's history. I know that in order to move Serie A forward as a league a lot of teams need ground developments but i can't help but feel a lot of teams will lose the propper stadium feel/tradition. What do you guys think?

It has tradition but the running track ruins everything. Furthermore, clubs need now to have their own stadium. Two clubs per stadium is obsolete.

I liked 2 clubs sharing as i thought that it added to the derby day atmosphere. The interesting one for me is Verona, what was once a top flight club now in the lower leagues, have they got a new owner?

I remember that there was a Serie C squad that had an absolutely drop dead gorgeous stadium, but I can't remember which team it was.

I don't know but they are in promotion playoffs at the moment and seem eager to rise again. They seem optimistic about their project.

It was Triestina, and the Stadio Nereo Rocco. Didn't know they were in Serie B now.

Goes to show how much attention I pay to it

It'd be nice to watch Serie A move to the 21st century.

Siena though... Don't they have fears that hooligans will shag the cows outside the stadio after games?

Yeah, the Olimpico is cool.

Can't stand in the way of progress, unfortunately.

The things is, a lot of these plans still involve the city owning the ground and renting it to the club. That is the big difference between our stadium and the rest. We actually own our ground, and this brings numerous benefits.

It's a good start though, as new modern stadiums will hopefully increase attendance and match day experience, and if this is maintained over many years, they could buy it off the city in the future.

That's the point. Anyways for what it's worth, watching our teams play in modern stadiums will be much more attractive and better for the branding of the league than in the landfills they are actually playing in.

A proper cahier de rêves. Pado's shit out of the proverbial coffee can that not one of these stadiums will see the light within the next decade. Well maybe, but just maybe, Inter and Cagliari. And Udine, which is renovation work.

Apart from the fact that Bologna is the communist capital of Italy, if there's one thing to be saved from that stadium, it's the tower and adjacent portici. They combine well with the city, known for its medieval towers and portici, as it happens.
