|Capacity: 3,700 (seated)|
The stadium is located in Rhodes (also: Rodos), the main town of the namesake island of the Dodecanese. Rhodes has an international airport, but you may also get there by boat from Piraeus. The stadium is located right outside the medieval walls of the old quarter of the city, to the south. It is therefore very easy to locate. If you start off from the centre of the new section of the town, drive along Dimokratias Street, parallel to the walls and the moat. Do not turn right at the crossroad towards Faliraki and Lindos, but continue straight ahead. You will be outside the stadium after 100 metres.
|Built in: 1932|
|Record attendance: 8,500 (Rodos FC vs Olympiacos CFP - in 1981)|
|Home of: Diagoras FC (Local League), Rodos FC (Local League)|
More data: Rhodes Municipal (formerly "National") Stadium is named after Diagoras, a famous Olympic boxing champion of antiquity who came from the island. The stadium was constructed during the Italian occupation of the Dodecanese islands. The cycling track around the pitch is still used to this day. The stadium has stands on three sides, the most characteristic of these being the north curve with the clock over its entrance. The colours of the seats (green-white and blue-red) refer to Rodos and Diagoras, the two clubs which call this stadium home. Picturesque as it may be, Diagoras Stadium is in dire need of upgrading. Its facilities remain more or less as they were more than three quarters of a century ago!
The stadium is owned by the Municipality of Rhodes.
