Fiorentina will play outside the Stadio Franchi for two years from mid-2024 and the Tuscans are considering several options away from home, including Empoli, Parma and Reggio Emilia.

Florence Mayor Dario Nardella revealed on Tuesday that the Tuscans would have to leave the Franchi to allow for the renovation of the stadium, which will begin this summer. Fiorentina will have to play away from home from mid-2024 to mid-2026 and Gazzetta lists the options for the Tuscans away from Florence. The Mapei stadium in Reggio Emilia, where Sassuolo and Serie C team Reggiana play their home games, seems to be a “natural option” if Fiorentina qualify for Europe next season. The closest stadium is Empoli’s Stadio Castellani, although public order would have to be taken into account if Fiorentina chose their rivals’ stadium, which also has a limited capacity with less than 17,000 seats available. Other options for Fiorentina are Modena, Parma, La Spezia, Ferrara and Perugia.
