  • Very large stadium. With good conditions for games and espétaculos. The Interior arcades have possibilities to be used for various purposes.

  • One of the most surprising things of cities in Portugal are its impressive football stadiums. For cities so small (relatively) stages are immense. You will find it by one of the entrances to the city.

  • Stadium likely redevelopment for Euro 2004. Interestingly, it has not removed the treadmills, but one of the tribunes removed. The stadium looks snug. In addition, Cristiano not scored a penalty kick in the match for the team, what I witnessed. Weekend car parking turns into market.

  • Football...what else?! Not Just that...but mainly! Castle of Leiria 5/ 10 minutes of a Nice walk from this stadium
  • This stadium has a great location , great parking, and great roadways to arrive there. The big problem is like what other viewers have stated is it is very under utilized. There could be more events such as Sobre Rodas which would bring in more people and also make it financially rewarding for the city of Leiria. I believe a series of summer concerts, local soccer games, open air markets from different regions of the country would help stimulate interest in the city of Leiria and also help pay the expenses of the stadium. Long live Leiria!
  • One of the best stadiums I've ever run in my life. Just breathtaking...
  • Lovely for sports
  • Good seats and has some great events!
