Description: Stadio Paolo Mazza

Fourth oldest stadium in Italy still in operation was built in 1927, but opened much later, in 1928. Initially it had one grandstand for some 5,000 people (south side) with running and cycling tracks both putting fans on a distance from the players.

In 1951 expansion and gradual reconfiguration efforts began. Currently the rarely used north side is the oldest (uncovered terrace), while western and southern grandstands meet modern criteria. With terracing the stadium was able to hold 25,000 at peak, but after redevelopments and seat installation it went down below the 10,000 mark. East end is not filled.
