History and description
Stadion Stozice was built to provide the city of Ljubljana and the Slovenian National Team with a modern football venue. It opened on 11 August 2010 with a friendly between Slovenia and Australia (2-0).
The stadium was named after the area it is located in. It is part of a larger sports complex including an indoor arena. The stadium is also used for concerts.
