Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia

Sharing of stadiums in football is something that is uncommon and unheard of in modern day football. In the past, there has been a time when clubs from the same city have had to share the stadium for various purposes before moving into their own new and permanent home.

Juventus and Torino shared the Stadio Olimpico in Turin for a combined time span of 37 years before Juventus moved into their new home Allianz Stadium in 2011. In the eastern part of Europe, Metalist Kharkiv and Shakhtar Donetsk have been co-owners of the Metalist Stadium since 2017 due to Shakhtar having to relocate their old stadium due to the Donbass War in 2014.

However, in Italy the scenario is different. History and tradition are followed and respected. In the Serie A, 45% of the clubs share their stadium with one another.

Here is a list of the 5 stadiums that are shared in Italy:


#5 Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia

The Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia, located in Bergamo, is the home of Serie A club Atalanta B.C. and Serie C U.C. AlbinoLeffe. The venue has a capacity of 21,300. Opened in 1928, it has served as the home of Atalanta ever since.

AlbinoLeffe was founded in 1998 and moved into this venue in the year 2003. Since then, the stadium has had co-tenants. It has undergone renovations thrice, in 1949, 1984 and 2015. The biggest and most noteworthy moments have to be the promotions earned by Atalanta back to top flight football on different occasions.

However, the most successful achievement was when the home fans got a chance to witness European football this season following their successful qualification to the Europa League last campaign.

Despite all the positives, the condition of the stadium is not up to Serie A standards due to a lack of facilities, distant viewing positions from the stands and also due to there being no roof on the stadium. The site is officially owned by Atalanta after they paid €8.6 million for its ownership and an additional €2.6 million for the stadium redevelopment in 2015.
