  • The stadium is quite cozy. The crowd of Vitória de Guimarães is quite exciting. Access to the stadium is quiet

  • I had the happiness to meet the stadium of Victoria, when I was in Portugal and thought it was beautiful, modern and very well designed there is no blind spot and very good vision of the game. Win 3 x 0 Beira Mar.
