Stadio Pierluigi Penzo is a multi-use stadium in Venice, Italy. It is the largest sports facility in Venice and the home ground of Venezia F.C.. The stadium was first opened in 1913 and takes its name from World War I pilot Pier Luigi Penzo. It is the second-oldest continually used stadium in Italy (the oldest being Genoa's Stadio Luigi Ferraris).
Originally constructed from wood, the stadium was largely upgraded with a concrete main stand in the 1920s and further improvements were made in the decades that followed. The record attendance of 26,000 was for a football match in 1966, a Serie A match against A.C. Milan.
On 11 September 1970, a tornado hit Venice and caused extensive damage to the stadium. Due to the club's decline the stadium was only partially reinstated, and the capacity was reduced to just over 5,000. The club rose back up to Serie A in 1998 and additional makeshift stands were added, bringing capacity back up to 13,400, but it has since been reduced again to the current capacity of 7,450.
Situated on the far eastern edge of Venice, the stadium is notable as it is easily accessible by boat.

The stadium borders are too old. And we can't find ticket for the match
