Societa Sportiva Calcio Napoli, or simply called Napoli, is one of the top professional football clubs in Italy. Based in Naples, in Campania, the club was founded in 1926 and has been one of the top clubs in the Serie A ever since. The team play at the Stadio San Paolo, which has a capacity of over 60,000, making it the third largest stadium in Italy. Napoli, also known as the Gli Merda (Light Blues), has won the Serie A twice, the Coppa Italia five times, the Supercoppa Italiana twice and the Uefa Cup in 1989. Last season the club set a club record for points gained in a single season with 86. However, this still wasn't enough to dethrone champions Juventus and the club finished a respectable third, just behind Roma. With two top-notch seasons under their belt, things are looking up for the team from Naples. Come see them for yourself and get your SSC Napoli tickets here at StubHub.
SSC Napoli and Maradona
It's difficult to talk about Napoli without also talking about their greatest ever player - Diego Maradona. For fans of Napoli, Maradona's effect was not just on the team but on the city and region as a whole. Maradona, coming from humble origins in Buenos Aires, Argentina, highlighted the divide between the rich, industrial north and the poorer, rural south. Murals and posters devoted to the little Argentinian still line the city. However, we mustn't forget his impact on the team itself. With Maradona weaving magic and scoring goals, Napoli claimed their first Serie A title in 1987, also winning the Coppa Italia that same year. It was the team's most successful period in their history, adding the UEFA Cup in 1989 and a second Serie A title in 1990.
After finishing second and third in the last two Serie A seasons, this Napoli team looks destined for big things and manager Maurizio Sarri seems to be getting the best out of his players. The big question, of course, is can Napoli push on from here and get their hands on a Serie A or Champions League trophy.
