Built in 1976 to mimic Munich’s Olympiastadion, the Stadio Friuli is undergoing serious modernisation and redevelopment. Having originally housed almost 42,000 spectators, it will eventually hold around 25,000 when work is complete. The rebuild sees all stands covered and brought closer to the pitch. There will also be an Udinese museum constructed, with the project reportedly costing €26m.
To get to Udine from the airport - 40km away - the easiest route is via the motorway exiting at Udine south. Another option is the train station, while No9 and FS buses go to the Friuli.
