The Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi is a stadium in Verona, Italy. It is the home of both Hellas Verona and Chievo Verona of Serie A .

Inaugurated as a state-of-the-art facility and as one of Italy's finest venues in 1963, the stadium appeared excessive for a team (Hellas) that had spent the best part of the previous 35 years in Serie B. For the 1990 FIFA World Cup renovations included an extra tier and a roof to cover all sections, improved visibility, public transport connections, an urban motorway connecting the city centre with the stadium and the Verona Nord motorway exit and services.

A building-integrated PV system has been installed on the rooftop during a major renovation. The PV system has a rating of 999.5 kW. 13,321 "FS 275" thin-film cadmium telluride (CdTe) solar modules by First Solar Inc. have been mounted on the aluminum mounting system Riverclack by ISCOM SpA. The solar modules are connected to 141 Sunny Mini Central SMC 7000HV inverters by SMA Solar Technology AG. The system was commissioned at the end of November 2009.[2]

The emergence of Chievo on the Serie A stage in recent years has split the city into two groups of archrival fans, both very loyal to their respective cause, these days with Chievo constantly battling to survive relegation in Serie A, and Hellas Verona just returning in the top tier after a four-year spell in the third division, after having won a scudetto in 1985.

Despite playing two divisions lower than Chievo and missing out on travelling supporters from the large Serie A teams, Hellas Verona the city's traditionally bigger team still managed to maintain higher average attendances than their rival during the 2009–10 season. During the 2013–14 season also the Virtus Vecomp Verona starts to play at Bentegodi.
