  • An of the things more surprising of the cities of Portugal are its impressive stadiums of football. 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.

  • I attended yesterday to watch x Bulgaria Portugal at Estádio Municipal de Leiria (and come back Tuesday to watch Portugal x Belgium). The internal facilities of the Stadium are very good, no complaints. The problem is with the outside. There were no officials informing about the location of the gates and there was a lot of confusion in the brokerage of the gates, because of the lack of security organization to check the tickets before the entrance and the other objects of the spectators. Anyway, nothing to get in the way of the experience.

  • É muito mau o exterior e interior do estádio ainda estarem inacabados.
  • Apenas aberto em eventos
  • Boaa condições
  • É um dos três estádios que o Arq. Tomás Taveira desenhou para o Euro 2004, notando-se semelhança com os outros dois na utilização das cores , etc. Hoje poderemos questionar a necessidade e interesse deste investimento numa localidade como Leiria, tendo resultado numa dívida elevada para a autarquia que o gere. Chegou a estar anunciada a venda do topo norte do estádio, ainda inacabado. Com pouca utilização relativamente à sua capacidade, sem equipa na primeira divisão, a sua utilização mais significativa é em eventos culturais e alguns jogos de futebol da seleção nacional. Jogou-se nele a final da Taça da Liga 2014-2015.
