The Sree Kanteerava Stadium has been the home of the current champs since 2014 and has a capacity of 24,000. There are eight entrances to the stadium with five being designated for the fans, one for the VIPs and one for stadium officials and one for players.

"Most of us follow European football clubs and we consider it a big deal to be a member there. For me, it is a bigger deal to be a season ticket holder at my local club. It is a commitment that I have made to my club, and I'm proud of it." #RoomForMore #WeAreBFC pic.twitter.com/tHO5UURODC— Bengaluru FC (@bengalurufc) October 16, 2019
Carles Cuadrat-led Bengaluru FC went unbeaten at home in their entire league campaign as they clinched their first ISL trophy. They scored an impressive 15 goals while conceding 7 in their 9 home games last season. They also overturned a 2-1 defeat in the hands of North East United in the playoff semifinals at home, winning the game 3-0. Due to their impressive home record, the stadium has been often referred to as 'the fortress' by their fans.
