Football hipsters across the world packed away their Venezia shirts for two seasons after relegation from Serie A in 2021/22, but the Arancioneroverdi’s top-flight return will see them taken back out. It was a short-lived absence from the Italian top flight for the club celebrated for their fashion-conscious jerseys, as the Lagunari defeated Palermo in the 2023/24 Serie B playoffs.

A city famed for its canals and couples seeking a romantic getaway, Venice will once again experience the passion of visiting supporters passing through the waterways on their journey to the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo. Now, football fans everywhere will be looking to buy Venezia tickets once again.

The sight of a vessel full of scarf-wearing and flag-waving supporters chanting from the open water is a rare delight and if you are considering a visit to the capital of Veneto, we have the only guide you need on how to buy Venezia tickets.

The official Venezia website is quite basic in design, but efforts have been made to make it welcoming to English-speaking visitors, so it is easy to navigate your way to the ticketing section. It will redirect you to the Vivaticket pages and it is here that you can buy tickets.

Work that was undertaken during their last stint in Serie A means that the entirety of the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo is accessible on a matchday, but will be limited to a maximum of four tickets per Vivaticket customer account.

When do Venezia tickets go on sale?

Around a month before each of Venezia’s fixtures you should find tickets to be on sale, but with just an 11,150 capacity, you will need to be quick.

Venezia tickets for games against the likes of Inter, AC Milan and Juventus often sell out to members or only have a few general sale tickets available.

How much do Venezia tickets cost?

The pricing structure for the 2024/25 campaign has not yet been confirmed with Venezia still accepting season ticket applications, but once they release it, you can come back here to check all the information.

However, during their last stay, the Curva Sud holding the Venezia hardcore support cost between €25-30, while the uncovered Distini closest to the water were priced at €35-40. If you want to avoid the rain, though, the two-tier Tribuna has limited general seating at significantly higher prices. For fixtures when small numbers travel to support the visiting team, half of the Curva Ospiti is open for general sale.

How to get to the Venezia stadium?

Venice Marco Polo Airport is the obvious choice if flying into Italy, as the No.5 bus will reach the main train station at Piazza San Marco within 30 minutes. However, several budget airlines also serve Verona airport, which is just an hour-long train journey. Similarly, you could fly to the pretty town of Treviso and catch the regular half-hour-long train to Venice.

As long as it is dry, the 30-minute walk can be enlightening and entertaining, twisting and turning through the narrow streets, before eventually emerging onto the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront and passing the Biennale grounds and directly to the island of Sant’Elena.

When in Venice, though, you should probably experience the Vaporetto water buses for at least one leg of the journey and lines 1, 4.2, 5.2 and 6 will deliver you to the Stadio Pier Luigi Penzo on Sant’Elena, and the Moovit website or app can help you with timetables and routes.
