Stadio Alberto Braglia is a football stadium in Modena, Italy. The stadium was built in 1936 and holds 21,151 people.


Artists that have performed at the stadium include Sting, Prince, Simple Minds, U2, Pink Floyd, Guns N' Roses and Rage Against the Machine, among others.

The stadium is currently the home of Modena F.C. and Carpi from their promotion to the 2015–16 Serie A season after their Stadio Sandro Cabassi did not meet Serie A capacity rules.[2] The stadium has also been a temporary home to U.S. Sassuolo Calcio from 2008 to 2013 (because their own stadium, Stadio Enzo Ricci, didn't meet Serie B stadiums criteria) until the club's choice to dispute their home matches at Stadio Città del Tricolore after their first promotion to Serie A.

The stadium held a 2010–11 UEFA Europa League clash between Juventus F.C. and Shamrock Rovers F.C. in August 2010 .

The stadium held an international rugby union with Italy playing Fiji on 27 November 2010.[3] In 2013 the North Stand was named after the late former Modena player Paolo Ponzo.
