The Isolani have not played a Serie A match at the stadium since April 1, 2012 but the local council has awarded the stadium a security certificate.
On Friday evening, the Lega Serie A released a statement which confirmed that the Stadio Sant’Elia would be Cagliari’s official home ground for the remainder of the season, starting with this weekend’s match against Catania.
At the moment, the Stadio Sant’Elia can seat 4,798 spectators and they can sit in the Curva Nord or Tribuna areas while reconstruction work commences on the rest of the stadium.
One of the stadiums that Cagliari used in the last 18 months was the Stadio Is Arenas in Quartu Sant’Elena but it failed numerous stadium checks and it had to be torn down.
Parma’s Stadio Ennio Tardini was another ground used by the Isolani but their main home away from home was the Stadio Nereo Rocco in Trieste.
