Aldo Drosina Stadium is a multi-use stadium in Pula, Istria, Croatia. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of NK Istra 1961 and formerly[2] NK Istra. The stadium has a capacity of 9,800[3]. From March 2009 to January 2011 the stadium has undergone a major reconstruction. The west stand was completely demolished and redesigned, a roof over the west stand was added. New Seats replaced bench seating all around the stadium, and the three existing stands were cleaned up. On February 9, 2011 Croatia hosted the Czech Republic in an international football friendly for the inaugural match to open the stadium. The match finished with a 4-2 win for the Blazers.

The stadium is named after Aldo Drosina (1932–2000), a noted football player and coach from Pula.
