Florence Stadiums Overview

Ippodromo del Visarno - Race Track | Venue in Florence

Florentines, like most of their European brethren, are pretty passionate about soccer. And when it comes to stadiums in Florence, football fans have a magnificent palace in Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Built in 1931 and then renovated in 1990, Artemio Franchi is the home of the incredibly popular football club ACF Fiorentina. All throughout the year, 47,000+ screaming, rabid fans pile into the arena to cheer on their team and intimidate their visiting opponents. The stadium has also hosted other international sporting events in addition to concerts where the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Madonna have played.

For hoops lovers in Florence, the Nelson Mandela Forum is a 5,000+ seat arena that features both local and international games, while race fans can head just north of the city to Circuit Du Mugello for Formula One action. The 5,245 meter track in the Tuscan countryside also hosts Grand Prix motorcycle racing.

There aren’t a ton of Florence stadiums, the city isn’t really big enough to support that many, but the stadiums that do exist always feature the best touring performers and biggest sporting events around.
