The sports centre includes an 11-player and a 7-player playing field and a recently built 5-player field.


The intervention was necessary because of the state of compromise of the artificial turf of the 11-a-side pitch, with the aim of obtaining homologation for the coming seasons; it should also be remembered that in 1999 this was the first artificial turf pitch in Genoa.
With the main pitch, the 7-a-side pitch was also rebuilt.


Together with the work on the surface of the fields, a roofing portion for the spectators’ grandstand has been realized, with a plan surface of about 22×5 m, with metal structure and insulated trapezoidal sheet metal covering, which allows to have 150/200 covered seats.
