Back to Ion Oblemenco Stadium

Universitatea Craiova used to play the games considered at home, in Severin. There are 120 Km between Craiova and Drobeta Turnu-Severin, next big city to west. Oltenia region consists in 5 disctricts: Dolj, Olt, Gorj, Mehedinti and Valcea. Capital of Dolj county is Craiova. Capital of Mehedinti county is Drobeta Turnu-Severin. 
The next match, against FC Timisoara, will be played on the old Central stadium from Craiova. This stadium was built in 1968 and get the name of the most important football player of Universitatea Craiova, Ion Oblemenco, on 1st September 1996, when this great man died.
This is first game played in Craiova by Universitatea since December 2009. The City Hall of Craiova decided this team should leave Ion Oblemenco stadium and our favorite players used the arena from Severin instead. Now it is the time from Craiova to come back home. Welcome back Stiinta!
