Stadion Maksimir is the home of Dinamo Zagreb, one of the most successful clubs in Croatia. The venue is also frequently used for international home matches by the Croatia national team.
The stadium was opened in 1912 and hosted matches for HAŠK and HŠK Građanski before they were dissolved in 1945 and replaced by Dinamo Zagreb. It has undergone a number of renovations across the years, most notably in 1998 and 2011 where it reached its current capacity of just over 35,000.
It was one of two venues for UEFA European Championship in 1976, hosting a semi-final and third place play-off. Croatia also played their first official home international match in the stadium following independence, defeating Mexico 3-0 in a friendly in October 1992.
