Sassuolo announce stadium change to accompany Serie A play
The 2012-2013 Serie B champions recently signed a two-year rent deal with Lega Pro Prima Divisione A side Reggiana, who own the venue.
The agreement struck with Reggiana will also include infrastructural improvements, including new benches and locker rooms, along with the development of new marketing and trade policies, which aim to take advantage of the business opportunities that come with the club’s Serie A promotion.
For the past five seasons, Sassuolo have been playing their home games at Modena’s Stadio Alberto Braglia, and the club thanked the Canarini on their official website for their willingness to share the stadium.
The Stadio Citta del Tricolore is about 25 kilometres north of Sassuolo and seats 20,084 people, which is slightly less than the Stadio Braglia’s maximum capacity of 21,151.
Sassuolo also announced that they will still be holding training at their actual home stadium, the small Stadio Enzo Ricci, for organisational reasons.
