Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, also known as the Marassi from the name of the ward where is located, is a multi-use stadium in Genoamarker, Italymarker. It was originally a private property of and built by Genoa C.F.C. in 1909. In 1933, the stadium got its name thanks to the former Genoa captain, Luigi Ferraris. In time, during WWII, it was passed under city public administration and property. It is currently used for football matches for Genoa and (since 1946) Sampdoria. It also plays host to rugby union matches. It holds 36,536 spectators. It has been reported by the BBC and others that the Italy national rugby union team will move to the Marassi if the Stadio Flaminiomarker in Romemarker is not upgraded. It is hoped that they will get bigger home attendances because almost all the main teams are in the north of the country and the stadium is bigger. However, it is also thought that many away supporters might find a trip to Genoamarker less appealing than a weekend in Rome.

The stadium was inaugurated on January 22, 1911 with a football match between Genoa and Internazionale, and had a capacity of 20,000. It has also hosted the 1934 World Cup match between Spain and Brazil, and by then its capacity had been expanded to 30,000.

The stadium was demolished and rebuilt for the 1990 World Cup, during which it hosted four matches.

The highest attendance at the Luigi Ferraris was 60,000 on February 27, 1949, for a match between Italy and Portugal.
