The stadium is located in the city of Kalamata, 250 km south-west of Athens. Kalamata has an airport and you may also get there by train. The stadium itself is located in the south-east part of the city, near the sea. To find it, follow roadsigns to "Beach & Areopoli", until you get to the seafront. Continue along Navarinou Street, towards Areopoli. Just before you pass by a big church, you will see a sign pointing left to "Ethniko Stadio" (which means "National Stadium" in Greek). Turn left and you will get to the stadium after 500m.

More data: The Municipal (formerly "National") Stadium of Kalamata is host to the annual Papaflessia International Athletics Meeting. It is once again the home of the local club since 2003, when they left Messiniakos Stadium due to financial disputes with the owner.
The form of the stadium, with the two separate stands, has not changed much since it was first constructed. The only minor additions where those of a running track in 1983 and of floodlights in 2001. In 2007 plastic seats were installed on both stands. Capacity was thus reduced by about 1,000 (click to see relevant photos: 1, 2, 3). Further plans for the stadium's upgrading include the construction of a roof over the south main stand.
The stadium is owned by the Municipality of Kalamata.
