The Netanya Stadium is the home ground of Maccabi Netanya, the Israeli club who experienced their greatest success in the 1970s and 80s. Often referred to as The Diamond Stadium as a nod to the club’s nickname, the new stadium replaced their former home of Sar-Tov Stadium as it had become outdated.
The first game played at the new stadium was on the 4th November 2012, with Maccabi Netanya defeating Hapoel Tel Aviv 2-1 in front of a capacity crowd. The Netanya Stadium hosted its first Israeli international match in February 2013 with the home team defeating Finland 2-1 in a friendly and has since hosted several other internationals, including UEFA Nations League fixtures.
The stadium also hosted four matches of the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship, including three group matches and a semi final.
