Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo)

The Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (known as the Gewiss Stadium for sponsorship reasons) has been the home of Atalanta since its opening in 1928. Originally known as the Stadio Mario Brumana, named after a fascist soldier, the first match was played on the 23rd December 1923 between Atalanta and Triestina with a capacity of 12,000.

The stadium has been gradually renovated over the years as Atalanta moved between Serie A and B, with the additions of a roof and stands covering the original running track to be closer to the pitch. The most recent renovation beginning in 2019, saw the demolition of the North Stand.

Tenants: Atalanta (Serie A)
