Napoli’s stadium is set to be revamped with improvements worth 1.2 million Euro already approved by The Municipal Council of Naples.
The proposal of the Councilor for Sport, Ciro Borriello, has been approved and work is soon to begin on renovating the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Naples, home of S.S.C. Napoli.
Repubblica reports that the entire project will cost in the region of 1.2 million Euro. It should include work done on the seating, the video surveillance, and the tunnels for the two teams. A new installation will also be put in place to prevent infiltrations from rainwater. The area for the team buses is going to be enhanced as well. Work begins in a month.
Borriello says that these measures were absolutely needed to ensure that the team can compete at the highest level. The Councilor also says that this is a good time to begin this kind of work given that fans are, for the time being, not allowed to view matches. Borriello hopes that once the football fans are able to return, they will be greeted within a stadium that can offer them the most modern of facilities.
The Naples arena has been rechristened the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in 2020 to commemorate the sad passing of Napoli’s greatest ever player. Originally known as Stadio San Paolo, the Naples arena was constructed in 1959 and is the third-largest stadium in Italy. It has numerous important events over the years, such as matches from the 1990 FIFA World Cup.
