Stadio Renato Dall'Ara

Teams: Bologna
Capacity: 38,297
Built: 1927
City: Bologna

The Stadio Renato Dall’Ara is a multi-purpose stadium that will be mostly remembered by English viewers of Italian football due to one moment in the Italia '90 World Cup.

England faced Belgium in the second round and were only minutes away from going into a penalty shoot out before Paul Gascoigne floated in a free-kick for David Platt to volley home in spectacular fashion.

The ground itself has been renamed three times and used to be called both the Stadio Littoriale and the Stadio Comunale before settling on its current name. As well as a huge tower on one side it has a roof over the other; these were all features added when modified for the 1990 World Cup.

The atmosphere in the Stadio Renato Dall’Ara is always hostile even though it is generally only half-full. The Ultras on the The Curva Bulgarelli are passionate and very vocal. Flares, firecrackers and flags are often brought out by members of the Turist Group 1996, SGP 1999 and the more notorious Vecchia Guardia (Old Guard). These groups are some of the nosiest away fans and make even more effort when at home.
