Key facts

Club: FC Panionios GSS | Opening: 1939 | Capacity: 11,700 seats

History and description

Nea Smyrni Stadium was built in 1939. The stadium was initially completely uncovered, mainly consisted of terraces, and could hold approximately 20,000 fans.

Capacity got reduced in the late 1990s when the stadium got converted into an all-seater. Further refurbishments were made in the following years, including a roof and VIP facilities on the main stand.

The stadium has the shape of a horseshoe as there is no stand at the northern end.

Getting there

Nea Smyrni is located in the Nea Smyrni area about 4 kilometres south of the city centre of Athens.

The stadium can be reached by tram or bus. Tram 10 passes the stadium on Leof. Andrea Siggrou avenue. One can catch the tram in the southern part of Athens’ city centre (on the same avenue). Get off at stop ΣΚΡΑ or ΧΡΥΣΑΚΗ. The stadium lies a few blocks away to the left.

The alternative is bus 106, which can be taken from the same spot as tram 10. Get off at stop ΛΕΟΝΤΕΙΟΣ, which is one block from the stadium.

From Piraeus, including Karaiskakis Stadium, one can take bus 130. The bus passes right in front of Nea Smyrni Stadium.
