Pallacanestro Cantù, founded in 1936, is a famous basketball club playing in Lega Basket Serie A and represents one of the most successful teams in Italy. They are the so called ‘Queen of Europe’ being the second most successful team in European basketball competitions. In their rich history they have won all international trophies.
Cantù Basket intends to develop a new basketball arena. This two-tier arena will have a capacity of more than 5,200 seats for basketball with retractable tiers to also allow other sports and events and state-of-the-art hospitality and public welfare facilities to capitalize the market potential of the club. Part of the arena project are also the club’s training facilities (2 full indoor basketball courts and 2 outdoor courts for 3×3 basketball).
The Stadium Consultancy, in collaboration with Istituto per il Credito Sportivo (ICS), assisted the design team, led by Studio Redaelli e Associati with Architettura Gerosa, with specialist knowledge in arena design and operations for the development of the preliminary design. This was presented to the Municipality, Region, Lega Basket and FIP on 6 October 2020.
