The stadium was designed by Giuliano Parmegiani and Lorenzo Giacomuzzi Moore, with construction work beginning in 1971. The stadium was officially inaugurated on 26 September 1976 at a match between Udinese and Seregno, thus replacing the beloved Stadio Moretti – Udinese’s home for many years. It was renovated ahead of the Italia ’90 World Cup, hosting three matches. Though the stadium’s maximum capacity has been as high as 41,652 in the past, the current capacity is 25,000 spectators.
Renovation work carried out by Udinese Calcio SPA
Work began in 2014 and was completed in 2016

Futuristic architecture and multifunctionality are seamlessly merged at the groundbreaking Dacia Arena. Besides rebuilding the stands behind each goal and the Tribuna Distinti (the east stand), a total refurbishment of the west stand was also a key part of the club’s project.
Dacia Arena was designed to allow fans to get as close to the players as possible. There are no barriers separating supporters from the pitch because the stadium is and must be a safe space suitable for children and families too. All 25,132 seats are covered and have been designed to offer stunning views at all times. The team dugouts feature a special system ensuring the view of the pitch is never encroached upon.
