Club: AC Monza | Opening: 1988 | Capacity: 7,499
History and description
First plans for the construction of Stadio Brianteo were made in the late 1970s when the club played in the Serie B and their tiny Stadio Comunale Gino Alfonso Sada needed a larger replacement.
However, from approval of the plans in 1980 and the first stone to be laid in 1982, it took until 1988 for the stadium to open. Stadio Brianteo officially opened on 28 August 1988 with a Cup match between Monza and Roma.
Soon after, the stadium recorded its record attendance of 14,142 spectators during a Serie B match versus Genoa.
In recent years, capacity has been significantly reduced due to safety measure, at one point to below 5,000. A number of refurbishments in 2019 raised capacity to over 7,000 again.
