Club: HNK Hajduk Split | Opening: 1979 | Capacity: 35,000 seats
History and description
Stadion Poljud was built in 1979 to host the 1979 Mediterranean Games. The stadium, with its two arced roofs, was designed to have the shape of a seashell.
Stadion Poljud could initially hold 50,000 fans, but this was later reduced when the stadium got converted into an all-seater.
The stadium has an athletics track circling the pitch and regularly hosts major athletics events. The stadium has also regularly hosted music concerts including the Ultra festival.
How to get to Stadion Poljud
Stadion Poljud is located in the north of the city of Split on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. The stadium lies only a kilometre north of Split’s historic city centre, and can thus be easily reached on foot.
Alternatively, you can take bus 3 from the eastern side of the historic centre (from streets Zagrebačka or Zvonimira). Take the bus in the direction of Lora. Buses go every 15 to 20 minutes. Bus 17 to Studentski Dom is a good alternative, and bus 7 connects the stadium with the eastern parts of Split.
Address: 8. Mediteranskih Igara 2, Split
Tickets for Hajduk games can be bought online, at the stadium, or at the CroFanShop in the historic centre (street Marmontova).
Hajduk tends to have the highest attendances in Croatia, but rarely sell out apart from the derby with Dinamo Zagreb.
