Description: Stadio Mario Rigamonti

In early 1950’s municipal authorities in Brescia decided to build a new venue that could replace older Stadium di viale Piave. Works on rebuilding that ground – built back in 1928 – started in 1956 and ended after three years. The venue was renamed to Stadio Mario Rigamonti, commemorating one of the casualties of Turin aircraft tragedy of 1949.

Since 2010 the ground hosts over 23,000 people due to regulations for all Serie A to have at least 20,000 capacity. However, part of the number in Brescia is temporary seating.
