The Stadio Benito Stirpe (also known as Stadio Casaleno), is an all-seater football stadium in the Italian city of Frosinone, Lazio.

Designed in the mid-1970s and built in the second half of the 1980s,[2] the stadium remained unfinished for about thirty years. The stadium was completed between 2015 and 2017 on the initiative of local football team Frosinone Calcio, who won a lease for the stadium from the local council for 90 years,[3] in order to replace the old municipal stadium.

With a capacity of 16,227,[1][4][5] it is the largest stadium found in the province, and the third in Lazio.[6]

It is dedicated to the memory of Benito Stirpe,[7] entrepreneur and chairman of Frosinone Calcio in the 1960s, and father of Maurizio, his successor at the helm of the club.[8][9]

The total cost of the stadium was approximately €20 million,[10] of which approximately €15 million went to the 2015–2017 construction completion.[3]

Structures and facilities[edit]

The Benito Stirpe Stadium comprises 16,227 seats[1] split between five stands: the 'Main Stand', the 'North Stand', the 'East Stand', the 'South Stand' and the 'Away End' (which is the south-west corner).
