Description: Stadio Friuli

By the second half of 2013, Udinese Calcio carried out extensive renovation of the main grandstand with its monumental arch. This will be the only stand of the historical Friuli retained in the new stadium. June 2013 saw works on pitch relocation begin. The field will be closer to the main stand as Friuli changes from an athletic venue to football-only.

Demolition of the old embankments located on three remaining sides of the stadium was scheduled for autumn 2013, but suffered a major delay and began in late April 2014. New ones to replace them will be simple, single-tiered and fully covered, creating what some call 'English layout' at Friuli, with improved sightlines and infrastructure.

Overall the capacity will be decreased significantly, from almost 42,000 to just under 30,000 in Serie A fixtures and 26,000 for international games.

Works are thought to cost €22.6 million and the stadium should be delivered by the end of 2015.
