Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore is a multi-purpose stadium in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

The stadium holds 20,084 and was built in 1995, replacing the Stadio Mirabello. It was given the name Stadio Città del Tricolore on 11 March 2012, having previously been called the Stadio Giglio.[2] On 8 July 2013, the stadium was given the current denomination for sponsorship reasons (agreement with Mapei).[3]

In December 2013, Giorgio Squinzi bought the stadium.[citation needed]

Events[edit]

It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of A.C. Reggiana 1919. It also hosts larger rugby union matches for Pro12 team, Zebre of Parma.

Football club Carpi used the ground for home matches during the 2011–12 season. In the 2013–14 season, the promoted Serie A side, Sassuolo, played at the ground. They signed a two-year rent deal with Reggiana, which manages the venue. The agreement struck with Reggiana also included infrastructural improvements, including new benches and locker rooms, along with the development of new marketing and trade policies, which aimed to take advantage of the business opportunities that come with the club's Serie A promotion.[4] The stadium was consequently renamed Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore.[3]
