Stadio Olimpico – San Marino History
San Marino’s national stadium first opened back in 1969 when it was used to host the football matches of S.S Juvenes who would later go on to merge with G.S Dogana in 2000 to become A.C Juvenes/Dogana.
Despite containing an athletics track around the perimeter of the pitch, the stadium is predominantly used to host the football matches of the newly formed team. Until the 2006/2007 season Juvenes/Dogna were a member of the Italian Football League after they withdrew to compete within San Marino’s domestic league, Campionato Sammarinese di Calcio.

Stadio Olimpico – San Marino Away Section
For England’s 2014 World Cup Qualifier back in March 2013, the official England Supporters Club were given an allocation of 2,600 tickets. The travelling supporters occupied the entire South Stand (Blocks E, F, G, H and I), as well as some seats within Block C.
With the travelling supporters often taking up to 40% of the seats the away fans can often control the noise levels, and thus it can often feel like a home game in some respects.
Transport is often arranged by the travelling country’s Football Associations to and from both Rimini and the historic centre of San Marino.
