The Friuli is located in Rizzi, 4 km from the city centre of Udine.
Opened in 1976, as a replacement for Stadio Moretti, Friuli has a maximum capacity of 41,652 seats, partly covered, currently limited to a capacity 30,642. Like most of Italian stadia, it is owned by the local council, the municipality of Udine.
The stadium also features facilities for fencing, gymnastics, martial arts and athletics, including an indoor gym, located in the grandstand.
It will be renovated towards the end of the 2012–13 season with work to begin in April 2013. New north and south stands, which will be completely rebuilt over the old athletic track, are expected to be ready for the 2013–14 season. The west stand, which is already covered, will be refurbished with better facilities during the same summer. The remaining stand will be rebuilt over the course of the 2013–14 season and will be ready for the following season. This will give the rebuilt stadium a capacity of around 25,000 with scope for expansion to 35,000. The north and south stands will not be covered until the summer of 2014.
