Golden Gala 2020 in Naples' San Paolo Stadium

On May 28, the fifth stage of the Wanda Diamond League will be held in the renovated stadium that hosted the 2019 Universiade.

The San Paolo stadium in Naples will host the 2020 edition of the Golden Gala Pietro Mennea, the fifth stage of the Wanda Diamond League, the main international track and field meeting circuit. Thursday, May 28, the world stars will compete on the renewed blue track and on the fields of the Neapolitan stadium that last July hosted the Universiade, after being subject to a profound restyling that brought new life to a stadium now ready to organize internationals events. The support of the municipal and regional administration was decisive. It is the fourth time in forty years (after 1988 in Verona, 1989 in Pescara and 1990 in Bologna) that the meeting will not be held at the Olympic stadium in Rome, temporarily unavailable to allow for adjustments to be made in view of the European Championships of football.
