5 stadiums in Italy that are shared by football clubs
A look at the various stadiums that are shared by Serie A clubs
#4 Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi
The stadium is owned by Serie A rivals Chievo Verona and Hellas Verona. The stadium, owned by the Municipality of Verona, holds a capacity of just less than 40,000 and was first opened in 1963 and underwent renovation in 1989
There is a significant distance between the pitch and the stands since there is a running track in between which makes the fans distant from the action on the field. The stadium lights up during the time of the Verona derby. However, there have been years when the venue has not been able to host the derby due to the absence of Hellas Verona from the Serie A.
Chievo has cemented its place in the top flight of Italian football since 2008 whereas Hellas were alternating with their status following relegations and promotions to and from the second tier. Similarly, the first ever Verona derby in Serie A took place in 2001.
The venue played host to four group stage matches of the 1990 World Cup. When it comes to the average attendances, Hellas have edged Chievo in this battle despite them having to go through the struggles in the second division. In the last five seasons, Chievo fans have averaged an aggregate of 10,651 fans per game whereas the Hellas have attracted a crowd of 17,762 fans each match.
