En un principio, capacity was set to 82.000 personas, but safety rules forced this drastic reduction in capacity.

A legendary stadium

There are several important events which hosted this old stadium, as the Mediterranean Games 1963, the European Championship 68 y 80, and especially the World Cup in Italy 90, where the stadium was the scene of some mythical matches. Among them, one Colombia- Cameroon, remembered for ever and ever by the Rene Higuita crass mistake.

Also, one England- Cameroon quarterfinal where the British had to sweat blood to defeat by 3-2 Africans at the end of the meeting gave a lap of honor at the request of the public or the memorable semi-final between Italy and Argentina, which served to check how the rival Maradona spent.

Precisely, in this party he experienced one of the most remarkable facts of history St. Paul, as the Italian tiffosi not whistled the Argentine anthem as they were doing the other stages in the albiceleste she combined playing in honor of 10 Argentinian, which it was received as a true god by the Neapolitan fans.
