Stadio San Filippo
Stadio San Filippo is a football stadium in Messina, Italy. It is currently the home of F.C. Messina Peloro.

History
The stadium was initially commissioned at the start of the 90s, but was not finished until 2004. It was officially opened on August 17, 2004 with Messina playing host to Juventus but losing (0-1, Emerson). The first official match was a week later, on August 22, Coppa Italia match Messina- Acireale (4-0). It replaced the old 11,000 seat Stadio Comunale Giovanni Celeste which is now used as a training field for the Messina squad.

Structure
The total area is 114,640 sm, of which 44,300 sm reserved to car parking and 70,340 sm to a service building close to the stadium. There is no athletic track around the field, and the visibility is very good in each sector. The only trouble is the total absence of a cover in all sectors, but an agreement between the team owners and the municipality will solve the problem in a few time.

Trivia
The name take place from the south zone of Messina where it is built, but a couple of petitions aim to rename it after the former Messina manager Franco Scoglio or the Messina Saint Hannibal Mary Di Francia.
