Goodbye to an era: Here overturned a Year in success

Preben Elkjaer has celebrated many triumphs at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi. With the Danish striker as a benchmark player brought the club to its only Italian league championship in 1985.

today, the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi is a shadow of itself. The capacity on the button to 40,000 can in no way be exploited, since several sections of the grandstand, quite simply, is not suitable to house the spectators longer.

Therefore, it is proposed that the 57-year-old stadium to be demolished and replaced with a new and modern.

below are pictures from the stadium:

the Municipality of Verona has, therefore, sent a new stadium in the offer, and there is a bid, which has been approved.

It is the business people from London and New York, who stand behind - and as a former teammate to Preben Elkjær: German Thomas Berthold.

- We are in close contact with the Hellas and are aware of the problem with the stadium, where there will no longer be allowed to play. The league has again temporarily extended the permit, because they know that there is something on the way. But certain areas have already been closed by technical reasons, says former defender for German Sport1.

Oprykkerne performing surprisingly well in Serie A this season, and holds for 23 of the 38 rounds and a sixth place finish. It will say that there is a real chance that they will play european next season. Or one should perhaps say 'risk'.

For Marcantonio Bentegodi are also not geared to play in the UEFA auspices.

- Should Hellas qualify to play internationally in the upcoming season, then they have a problem with UEFA, who will not give them permission to play in the stadium, says world champion in the year 1990.

There is, however, still to be played football at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi, which also houses the new stadium of Chievo. For the new stadium must be entered - it is expected to be completed in 2022.
