Club: CFR 1907 Cluj | Opening: 1973 | Capacity: 23,500 seats
History and description
Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu opened in 1973 with a match between Cluj and the Cuban national team.
Until the early 2000s, Cluj mostly played in the lower leagues, for which a modest stadium was more than sufficient.
This changed when Cluj promoted to the top league in 2004 and soon after qualified for European football. The club therefore embarked on a €20-million redevelopment program that saw the construction of three new modern stands. Works were finished in September 2008.
The club has tentative plans to complete the stadium with a fourth stand at the end currently left empty, which would raise capacity to over 25,000 seats.
Stadionul Dr. Constantin Rădulescu is located in central Cluj-Napoca, more or less in between the city centre and the railway station.
The stadium lies just north of the city centre, from which it is a short 15-minute walk. The walk from the central railway station (which lies north-east of the stadium) takes even shorter.
Address: Str. Romulus Vuia 23, Cluj-Napoca, 40021
