History and description
Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia officially opened on the 23rd of December 1928 with a match between Atalanta and Triestina. It originally went by the name of Stadio Mario Brumana and could hold 12,000 spectators.
Over the years, Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia got gradually expanded with the addition of both curves and a roof over the main stand. The stadium initially had a running track circling the pitch, but makeshift stands have been placed over it.
The stadium has also been the home of Serie B club UC AlbinoLeffe since it promoted to Serie B in 2003 and their traditional home in nearby Albino could not meet league standards.
Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia has aged significantly over the years and lacks many comforts of present-day stadiums. For the last decade, Atalanta has therefore investigated several options to build a new modern stadium on the outskirts of the city, however none have materialised in anything concrete and studies are ongoing.
Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia is located north-west of central Bergamo, about 2 kilometres from Bergamo’s old town (up the hill), and about the same from Bergamo’s more modern central areas down the hill. It is slightly more than 2 kilometres from Bergamo’s rail station, which has frequent train service to and from Milan.
The walk form both the old and new town, as well as the rail station, takes no more than 30 minutes.
Alternatively, one can catch bus 6 (direction S. Colombane) or 9 (direction Bruntino –Sorisole) from the rail station (Porta Nueva), and bus 3 from the old town (direction Ostello).
If arriving by car from the A4 (Autostrada Milano-Brescia), take exit Bergamo and turn onto the circonvallazione ring road in the direction of Valli di Bergamo. Keep following for about 5 kilometres until you see the signs Stadio pointing towards the correct exit. Turn left on top of the exit and follow until you see the stadium on your right.
Address: Piazzale Goisis 7, Bergamo
