Stadionul Dr. Constantin Radulescu

Key facts

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.
