Frosinone Calcio (2017–)

Designed in the mid-1970s and built in the second half of the 1980s,[2] the stadium remained unfinished for about thirty years. The stadium was completed between 2015 and 2017 on the initiative of local football team Frosinone Calcio, who won a lease for the stadium from the local council for 90 years,[3] in order to replace the old municipal stadium.

With a capacity of 16,227,[1][4][5] it is the largest stadium found in the province, and the third in Lazio.[6]

It is dedicated to the memory of Benito Stirpe,[7] entrepreneur and chairman of Frosinone Calcio in the 1960s, and father of Maurizio, his successor at the helm of the club.[8][9]

The total cost of the stadium was approximately €20 million,[10] of which approximately €15 million went to the 2015–2017 construction completion.[3]
