Frosinone Calcio at Matusa

Frosinone is a town located in the southern part of Lazio, about 80 km from Rome. The town’s inhabited center develops on a hill overlooking the valley of the Sacco River. In the 2014-2015 season the club Frosinone Calcio faces its sixth tournament in Serie B. Home matches in the system are owned by the municipality and the stadium is located in the lower part of the city.

The facility is known to football fans by the nickname of Matusa. It is not the official name of the facility. The term was coined in the early 1970s by journalist Luciano Renna who wanted to indicate the seniority of the structure. The pitch was first used in 1932. At the end of the thirties an uncovered tribune was added. After the Second World War the grandstand was built and is still present along with the area steps. Finally, in the seventies two curves with metal frames were pulled out.

With the return of the team to Serie B, some home matches may begin to be played at the nearby facility on Casaleno Street (where players of Frosinone Calcio already train during the week). By the first months of 2015, the municipality of Frosinone should begin the renovation of the existing part and expansion with new stands. The new stadium project provides a capacity that varies from a minimum of 13,000 to a maximum of 16,000-18,000 places, with four sections separated from each other but connected through removable structures. Also, the new facility will be owned by the municipality that will give concessions to Frosinone Calcio.

Frosinone is the capital city of Ciociaria, an area located in the southern part of Lazio to the southeast of Rome. There are many places that are worth visiting in this area of Lazio: from the Abbazia di Monte Cassino to the city of Agnani also known by the nickname cittŕ dei Papi.

Another extra point is given by the transfer of the team in the new facility in Casaleno Street. The new stadium will in fact be larger, closer to the highway, in an area of ​​town with even more parking options with respect to the so-called Matusa and already characterized by the presence of other sports facilities (sports hall and swimming facility). The Frosinone Calcio should start to play in official matches with the start of the 2015/2016 season.
