Stadio Luigi Ferraris

Stadio Luigi Ferraris

Also known as Marassi (after the surrounding neighbourhood), the Stadio Luigi Ferraris is located in Genoa. It is a multi-purpose arena, mainly used for football. Having opened in 1911, it is one of the oldest football stadiums in Italy. Genoa C.F.C. use the arena as their home ground, and the stadium's name is a dedication to former team captain, Luigi Ferraris.

The Stadio Luigi Ferraris hosted four matches during World Cup 1990. Three games were Group C fixtures, the other being the Round of 16 match between the Republic of Ireland and Romania.
