Estadio Algarve, Faro
(2.3/5 based on 65 reviews on the web)
The Estádio Algarve is an association football stadium located between Faro and Loulé, in Portugal and the former home of Farense and Louletano, having received some Olhanense and Portimonense matches during their respective stadiums' works of renovation. The Estádio Algarve is also the temporary home ground of the Gibraltar national football team and it also hosts the final match of the Algarve Cup, a major annual international tournament in women's football. From 2004 to 2013, Louletano shared the stadium with Sporting Clube Farense.The stadium has a capacity of 30,002, and was built for the Euro 2004 tournament. Aside from football, it has also hosted music festivals and concerts, and was temporarily converted into a super special stage during the 2007 Rally Portugal (part of the 2007 World Rally Championship season).The Estádio Algarve was designed in the summer of 2000 to UEFA and FIFA standards by Damon Lavelle of Populous (formerly HOK Sport) London. The design team included WS Atkins engineers and local partners including Marobal. The design is regional in nature, alluding to the maritime traditions of Portugal and harmonising with the distinctive local landscape. The stadium is considered a model small/regional flexible use stadium for European football and cultural events, being one of the most used stadiums in Portugal, compared to others used for matches in the main Portuguese Football League.

  • At the end of the motorway or from Faro, you can't miss this modern and well designed stage. Access are very well equipped and thousands of parking spaces are reserved for spectators.

  • Estadio built between loule and faro purposely for the euro 2004 ... Otherwise spend months without it if play or there is some event ... Waste of money another one of those that I believe could have been avoided!

  • This a wonderful stadium that makes you feel very close to the players. Such a pity that is so seldom used !
