Club: Benevento Calcio | Opening: 1979 | Capacity: 12,847 seats
History and description
Stadio Ciro Vigorito, initially called Stadio Santa Colomba, officially opened on 9 September 1979.
Upon completion, the stadium could hold 25,000 spectators, but over the years capacity got reduced due to safety reasons, first to 18,500 and in the last few years to around 12,000, also because the Curva Nord stopped being used.
In 2010, the stadium got renamed Stadio Ciro Vigorito following the death of club director Ciro Vigorito.
In 2017, upon Benevento’s promotion to the Serie A, upgrades were made to the stadium with the intention to increase capacity to over 17,000 again.
