The official name dates back to 1976, the year of construction of the plant: “As part of the contract, in Article 5, the ban on changing the name of the Friuli Stadium is sanctioned”, recalled the mayor
UDINE. “The Friuli stadium cannot be called Dacia Arena”. To reiterate this, in a note, is the mayor of Udine, Pietro Fontanini, who recalls how “the official name dates back to 1976, the year the plant was built. Important adaptation works were then carried out on the occasion of the 1990 World Football Championships.
Subsequently, on 29 March 2013, the contract was stipulated between the Municipality of Udine and Udinese Calcio to transfer the surface rights to the company, including the surface property on the Stadium area, an operation aimed at enhancing the structure through the restructuring of the existing plant and its management “.
“As part of the contract, Article 5 prohibits changing the name of the Friuli Stadium”, recalls Fontanini.
“It is therefore clear that the Dacia Arena name constitutes an obvious information error. Furthermore, the hypothesis that this name has been indicated by Udinese Calcio constitutes an evident breach of the contract. Therefore, I invite the press to report the real name of the facility, that is Stadio Friuli, in the sports chronicles “.
