Stadio Luigi Ferraris
Genoa - Italy
Via Giovanni De Prà 1, 16139 Genova

Stadio Luigi Ferraris got built in 1910 after Genoa socio Musso Piantelli came up with the idea to use the ground inside a racecourse for a football pitch. His proposal got accepted and the new stadium opened on the 22nd of January 1911.

The stadium originally only consisted of one wooden stand, but it quickly got expanded in the 1920s and 1930s to a capacity of about 30,000 places.

In 1933, the stadium got renamed to Stadio Luigi Ferraris, in honour of the former captain of Genoa who had died in the first World War.

One year later, the stadium hosted the round of 16 match between Spain and Brazil (3-1) at the 1934 World Cup.

Stadio Luigi Ferraris was until 1946 the sole home of Genoa, but when Sampdoria git founded in that year, it requested to share the ground, which was accepted by Genoa.

In the following decades, the stadium got gradually expanded to a maximum capacity of about 55,700 places in the 1980s.

Stadio Luigi Ferraris was almost completely rebuilt for the 1990 World Cup. Construction of the characteristic new stadium, designed by architect Vittoria Gregotti, started in 1987 and was completed in 1989. Works were performed gradually as to allow Genoa and Sampdoria to keep playing at the stadium.

During the World Cup, three group matches and the round of 16 match between the Republic of Ireland and Romania (0-0) were played at the stadium.

In the last decade, only minor renovations have been performed on the stadium, and its state has slowly deteriorated. Over the years, Genoa and Sampdoria have therefore looked into either redeveloping Stadio Luigi Ferraris, or into building a complete new stadium. Currently, however, no concrete plans exist.
