Estádio João Cardoso – stadium description
The football complex south of Tondela’s heart was built in 2005, when local side CD Tondela managed to grab promotion to the 3rd league. At that point they received the main field with two grandstands (southern main one and eastern curved terrace), a training pitch and an indoor hall.
Two following promotions not long after resulted in the team reaching Portugal’s top division in 2015, forcing further works. The building then received its north and east stands, raising capacity to some 4,500 seats and offering floodlights for nighttime games. The signature feature of this stadium is its outer wall clad with yellow and green tiles, offering a pleasant appearance.
