According to official website of Calcio Catania, the long awaited new stadium is finally coming closer. On Thursday president of the club officially bought 50 hectares of land in Jungetto, western outskirt district of Catania.

This is where the club's new stadium will be built, in line with the newly adapted legislation facilitating private stadium investments. There's no delivery date so far, but construction will not begin until 2015.

The final design of Catania's new football stadium is expected to be developed by a local company, Studio di Ingegneria Civile.
