At the end of the 2022/2023 football season, there was an important recognition for Mapei Stadium. The Reggio Emilia stadium’s pitch ranked No. 2 in the final Most Valuable Field rankings, preceded only by Bergamo’s Gewiss Stadium.
At the end of each match day, the playing fields were evaluated and judged by the players based on technical and functional performance, as well as aesthetics, through scoring. The final ranking, determined through the votes of the visiting team captain, the referee, the director of the event’s TV production, and LNPA’s agronomic technicians, awarded the three best playing fields of the 2022/2023 Serie A TIM: Bergamo’s Gewiss Stadium, Reggio Emilia’s Mapei Stadium, and Cremona’s “Zini” Stadium.
