The stadium is named after Portugal's founder king.
It is a remodelled and enlarged version of the Vitoria Club Stadium, near the city's 10th century castle.
The Guimaraes venue, which features four separate partly covered blocks of seats, was the first of 10 Euro 2004 stadiums to be completed.
And it should be easy for spectators to make their way to the match - it is just a few minutes' walk away from the city centre.
Focus on Guimaraes
The birthplace of Portugal, and the nation's first capital, Guimaraes is known as 'the cradle of the nation.'
It boasts an imposing statue of former monarch Afonso Henriques, plus the castle and medieval walls which shadow the historical centre, which has been recognised as a special heritage site.
The ruins of a former Celtic settlement are a few miles away in Briberies, and the region around Guimaraes is the only place in the world that produces the wine vinho verde.
During Euro 2004, a group of 50 young volunteers will be stationed around the city to guide visiting football fans.
