Stadio Sandro Cabassi History

Carpi’s Stadio Sandro Cabassi is a communal stadium which first opened in 1928, and has been home to the local football team ever since. Initially named after Mario Papotti who was a young boy who died during the Spanish Civil War, the stadium was renamed after Sandro Cabassi, towards the end of the Second World War in 1944.

Like other municipally owned grounds in Italy such as Stadio Bergamo and Stadio Bentegodi, it suffers somewhat from being designed as a multi-purpose stadium. Although it doesn’t have an athletics track around the perimeter of the pitch, it does still have the concrete remnants of a velodrome which is still somewhat problematic.

Renovations have generally been the result of more stringent stadium safety criteria as Carpi have progressed through the tiers of Italian Football. For example when the club played in Serie C in the 2011/2012 season renovation work on the two long sides was completed worth over 1.2 million euros.

On 12th April 2011 Stadio Sandro Cabassi hosted its first international match between Italy and England. The under 18s match between the two famous footballing nations counted legendary AC Milan manager Arrigo Sacchi amongst those who attended.

For the 2016 season Carpi F.C are set to play in Serie A, the top flight of Italian Football, for the first time in the club’s history. With a capacity just above 4,000 I Biancorossi may well be forced to ground share a larger stadium or expand the facilities over the Summer to meet the league’s criteria.
