Stadio Franco Ossola
|Stadio Franco Ossola|
|Location||Via Bolchini, Masnago, 21100 Varese, Italy|
|A.S. Varese 1910|
Constructed in 1925, and originally named the Stadio del Littorio, the stadium was renamed in September 1950 in memory of Franco Ossola, an Italian from Varese and player for Torino F.C. who died in 1949 in the Superga air disaster.
Originally, the stadium could accommodate up to 23,000 spectators, but the capacity has been reduced to comply with safety standards, so much so that now the north stand, which houses the home fans, is not usable.
In recent years, plans have been drawn up to create a new 10,000 seater stadium to replace the existing one.
