Stadio Luigi Ferraris
Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, also known as the Marassi from the name of the ward where is located, is a multi-use stadium in Genoa, Italy. It opened in 1911 and is one of the first and oldest stadiums still in use for football and other sports in Italy. Hosts since its birth the inside of Genoa, the manufacturer and already owns the stadium. In a later period became the property of the Municipality of Genoa and, since 1946, is also home to Sampdoria. Aside from football, the stadium has hosted meetings of rugby in the Italian national team and, more rarely, some concerts. It was originally a private property of and built by Genoa C.F.C. in 1909. In 1933, the stadium got its name thanks to the former Genoa captain, Luigi Ferraris. During World War II it was passed under city public administration and property. It is currently used for football matches for Genoa and (since 1946) Sampdoria. It also plays host to rugby union matches. It holds 36,536 spectators. The stadium was inaugurated on January 22, 1911 with a football match between Genoa and Internazionale, and had a capacity of 20,000. It has also hosted the 1934 World Cup match between Spain and Brazil, and by then its capacity had been expanded to 30,000. The stadium was dismantled and rebuilt for the 1990 FIFA World Cup, during which it hosted four matches. The highest attendance at the Luigi Ferraris was 60,000 on February 27, 1949, for a match between Italy and Portugal. On 12 October 2010, a Euro 2012 qualifier between Italy and Serbia was abandoned after Serbia fans continued to throw flares on to the pitch and light fireworks. When the game finally began, more flares and fireworks were thrown on to the field and the referee stopped the match after only six minutes of play.
