Fiorentina to develop new sports park with 2 mini stadiums

Fiorentina to develop new sports park with 2 mini stadiums

Sunday 11th October 2020

Fiorentina have announced plans to develop the land adjacent to their Stadio Artemio Franchi. The new development nicknamed "Viola Park" will include 10 football pitches, all with undersoil heating.

The Serie A side will also build small stands at the side of two of the new pitches. One will have seating for 1,500 people whilst the other will have a capacity of 3,000 - that sounds like 2 new stadiums in our book!!

Construction will begin in January next year and will be completed by Christmas 2021. The project will also feature offices, changing rooms, a swimming pool and a church. The total cost of the €75m development will be financed by the club's owners.
