Kantrida (WSPE-220)


Product Description


Rijeka, Croatia


Stadion Kantrida is a football stadium in the Croatian city of Rijeka. It is named after the Kantrida neighborhood in which it is located, in the western part of the city. It has served as home of the football club NK Rijeka since 1946. The stadium has a distinctive appearance as it is situated between steep cliffs just north of the stadium and the shore of the Adriatic on its south side. Since 1990 the venue is also occasionally used for Croatia national football team's international friendlies. The stadium has a seated capacity of 10,600.

The location was used as a stone quarry before the first football ground was created on the site in 1911 by HŠK Victoria, a football club based in Sušak (currently a suburb of Rijeka but at the time a separate town east of the city), and the first football match played at Kantrida was held in 1912, a friendly between Victoria and Gra?anski Zagreb.

The stadium was renovated twice, in 1951 and 1958. It formerly had a capacity of 25,000, but this was later reduced to around 10,000 (due to the gradual evolution of UEFA safety standards) and floodlights were installed in 1975.

Unused 4" x 6" continental size chrome.
