  • 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.

  • 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!
