Napoli officially rename home ground Diego Armando Maradona stadium after Argentine club legend

The San Paolo will see its name changed to honour the legendary figure, who passed away last week at the age of 60
The Naples city council has unanimously approved a resolution that will change the name of Napoli’s home stadium from Stadio San Paolo to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

The resolution was proposed by Naples mayor Luigi De Magistris only hours after the news that Maradona had passed away at age 60 last week.

Maradona is a revered figure in Naples after leading the city’s club to two Serie A titles during his seven-year run with Napoli from 1984 to 1991.
