You may also get there by bus. Use any of the following: A16, C16 (from Koumoundourou Square), 17 or 17 (from Zinonos Street, near Omonia).

More data: The stadium is named after Stavros Mavrothalassitis, the city's Mayor who played a major part in its construction. The stadium's capacity was 18,000 (half on terraces) until 1999. It was then that the new stand of Makris Street was completed. However, it was never officially inaugurated, as the earthquake of 7/9/1999 caused significant damage to the stadium.

As a result, Aegaleo FC were forced into "exile", using Peristeri Stadium (in 1999-2000 and 2000-2001) and Korydallos Stadium (in the 2001-2002 season). Aegaleo FC were able to return to their partially repaired home stadium in late 2002. Capacity was reduced to 3,530, as only two of the stands were used: that of Makris Street (east) and the smaller one of Thessalonikis Street (south). The main west stand of Thivon Street remained closed.
Extensive works commenced in 2005 aiming to totally transform Aegaleo Stadium. They involved the construction of two new stands behind the goals (Thessalonikis Street & Korai Street) and the installation of a roof over the Makris Street stand. The most important part of this project was the repair of the main stand (Thivon Street), which suffered the most damage by the 1999 earthquake. The stand was re-opened to fans in mid-2006, adding more than 4,000 seats to the stadium's overall capacity. Almost a year later, the construction of a roof over the main stand was completed (all photos on this page were taken before 2007).
