SC Braga looking to move to new stadium

Braga targeting new stadium

Sunday 7th July 2019

Portuguese top flight side SC Braga are in the early stages of planning a new stadium.

The club are looking to relative away from their current unique Estadio Municipal de Braga. The ground was built for the 2004 European Championships and is famously 2 sided and built into the side of a mountain.

Braga have already identified a new site - the centrally located Estadio 1 de Maio, home of local non-League side Grupo Uniao Sport de Montemor. Braga plans to build a new 20,000 seater stadium there.

However, there’s plenty of red tape to go through before any work starts including a council decision whether or not to sell the Estadio Municipal de Braga.
