Football packages with Napoli
Napoli is undoubtedly one of Italy’s best clubs. But the team actually had their real golden years during the late 80s and early 90s, when one of the world’s best players of all time, Diego Maradona, played with the club. After he left, the Neapolitans faced some tough times, but returned to the top division during the 2007/2008 season and have been Series A regulars ever since. The club is known for staying on top with a remarkably offensive style of play, entertaining even the pickiest of spectators. During the last six seasons, Napoli nabbed two second places. Even at their worst, they got fifth place – so maybe they’re well on their way on the road to restore their former glory?
If you have your sights set on visiting Naples or any of the other cities in football Europe, the easiest way is to go through a travel agent specialising in arranging football trips. They can offer you convenient packages with everything you need: game tickets, flights and accommodation nearby. Easy-peasy! If you would rather organise the trip yourself, you can get your tickets at the Napoli website, at the arena entrance or by phone.
SSC Napoli was born in 1926. These days, their home grounds are at Stadio San Paolo, but they have gone through a few a moves – from Arenaccia to Ascarelli and Vomero, before settling at San Paolo in 1959. Napoli is, along with AS Roma, one of two teams who are expected to be able to take the crown from the reigning Juventus, but back in the 80s, they were the top dogs in the game. The club won the A Series in 86/87 and 89/90, and in 86/87, they also brought home the Italian Cup. In 89/90, they won first place in what is now known as the European League, which used to be called the UEFA Cup. And, finally, they also won the Italian Super Cup during the 1990/91 season. With such an illustrious history, the 80s and early 90s were the golden age of Napoli, when Maradona was out on the pitch in full force. These days, the leading stars of the team are Callejón, Insigne, Hamsik, Milik and Mertens.
