Mapei Stadium is a sports facility designed to be a welcoming and functional home for fans and for all the professionals who work there: players, technical staff, stewards, journalists, etc.
The extraordinary maintenance interventions carried out during the summer have made it possible to modernize some services and to facilitate, in the future, periodic interventions and checks, thus extending the life of the structure in a perspective of durability, for the benefit of the environment and the entire local community.
The most important intervention from a structural point of view involved the upgrading of the roofs of the East and West stands. The roofing was replaced with a more modern and high-performance construction solution that guarantees total waterproofing.
The playing field, which host two teams thus enduring double shifts, has been changed and improved with the full replacement of the sandy substrate, provided by Vaga, the heating system and the final layer mixed in sewn turf and synthetic.
On the other hand, it was not necessary to intervene on the deep drainage system, built in 2014 with Mapesoil technology – totally free of pipes and still in perfect condition – which guarantees the drainage of the field. The tests carried out on the Mapesoil system have shown, in fact, how the Mapei technology is still efficient and guarantees durability, and therefore sustainability, to the sports facility and performance of the turf over the entire playing surface, even during copious rainfall, without water stagnation.
At the entrances of the stadium, state-of-the-art digital turnstiles have been installed that allow access even with smartphones, simplifying controls and speeding up flows and that can also be used to convey service information or promotional messages.
The TV compound, the area dedicated to the great technological “circus” that accompanies events and matches between directories, electric generators or trucks for technical equipment, has also been completely renovated for the total efficiency of the television operators’ work.
These latest projects are added to the other works made in recent years by Mapei to improve the structure and always keep it at the level of international standards: from the renovation of the stands to the new seats, from the refurbishment of the press room and gallery to the outdoor spaces of the vip boxes.
