Winter Stadium (Hebrew: אצטדיון וינטרEtztadion Vinter) is a multi-purpose stadium in Ramat Gan, Israel. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of Hakoah Amidar Ramat Gan.

History[edit]

Work on the stadium began in 1976,[1] as a replacement of Hakoah Ramat Gan's Gali Gil Stadium, which closed in 1974.[2] The stadium's first match was played on 9 July 1981, during the 1981 Maccabiah Games, between the Maccabi teams of Israel and the USA.[3]

The stadium was renovated in 1993,[4] 2000, when plastic seats were placed upon the concrete stands,[5] and 2006, upon the return of Hakoah Amidar to the Israeli football top level.
