Stadio Ezio Scida
Club: FC Crotone | Opening: 1946 | Capacity: 16,108 seats
History and description
Stadio Ezio Scida opened in 1946 after having been under construction for 11 years. The stadium was named after ex-player Ezio Scida, who died during a team trip in 1946.
Until 1999, Stadio Ezio Scida was a very modest structure that could hold no more than 5,000 people. Redevelopment works involving works of all stand around the turn of the millennium almost doubled capacity to just under 10,000 seats.
Following Crotone’s promotion to the Serie A in 2016, the stadium got further expanded with temporary bleachers on top of the main stand and Curva Sud, raising capacity of over 16,000.
How to get to Stadio Ezio Scida
Stadio Ezio Scida is located toward the west of the small city of Crotone. It lies a short 10 to 15 minutes walk away from Crotone’s historic centre and a similar walk from the train station, which lies further west of the stadium.
Trains run to Crotone from Catanzaro and Sibari, which in turn have connections to the wider region, though at least one further change is required to reach Naples or, for example, Messina.
Address: Via Cutro, 88900 Crotone
