Stadio Guido Angelini is a multi-use stadium in Chieti, Abruzzo, Italy. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of S.S. Chieti Calcio.

History[edit]

The stadium, named after the historic president of S.S. Chieti Calcio Guido Angelini, was built in 1969 in the lower part of the city and officially opened in 1970 with a friendly match (refereed by Concetto Lo Bello) against the A.C. Milan.[1] The stadium is located in a sports center in the Santa Filomena neighborhood where there are several covered arenas, built for volleyball, basketball, futsal, handball, and a grass field that hosts sports such as rugby, baseball, and a training ground for Chieti Calcio. After renovations in 2006, the stadium added a grandstand, a new curve named after Ezio Volpi, which houses the home fans.[2] The stadium capacity is approved for 9,007 seats, but after the construction of the new curve, the maximum capacity reaches 12,750 people. The stadium also has a press box consisting of about 80 seats.
