Overview

The Stadio Olimpico was also used by Serravalle-based football club A.C. Juvenes/Dogana for its home games in the Italian league, until the side withdrew to concentrate only on the Sammarinese Championship. The Stadio Olimpico is an all-seater stadium and has a maximum capacity of 6,664. It has hosted teams such as England, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and Scotland.

The San Marino national team's three biggest defeats in the stadium are a record 13–0 to Germany in September 2006 and more recently 8–0 to England and by the same score against Ukraine, both in 2013. The national team's only win was also in this stadium; a friendly 1–0 beating of Liechtenstein in 2004.

The stadium seats are in two stands along the lengths of the pitch and the highest ever capacities are in those same matches against Germany and England. 5,019 people saw them lose to Germany, and 4,952 saw them lose to England.

San Marino's first official international match, which was a 4–0 defeat to Switzerland, was also played here.

It is also home to the youth teams of San Marino, some of which have worse records on the international stage than the senior team; though their Under-21 side did record a shock 1–0 win over their Welsh counterparts in 2013.

In 2014, the San Marino national team gained their first ever European Championship qualification point here, in a 0–0 draw with Estonia.

It hosted matches at the 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship [2]

The final of the San Marino domestic cup, the Coppa Titano, is also played here each year.
