Stadion Miejski w Skierniewicach – construction description

How did the redevelopment of Skierniewice City Stadium come about?

In October 2021, it was announced that funding had been granted from the 'Polish Deal' fund for the redevelopment of Skierniewice City Stadium. Thanks to the grant, the investment that had been planned for some time could enter the implementation phase. At the end of January 2022, the tender procedure was launched, which was resolved in June of the same year. As a result of the tender, the Mirbud company became the main contractor.

The value of the signed contract is PLN 49.47 million. Funding from the 'Polish Deal' fund will amount to almost PLN 28.5 million, more than PLN 2.4 million was also obtained from the Physical Culture Development Fund. The remainder is to come from the city budget.

How is the redevelopment of City Stadium in Skierniewice progressing?

On June 29, 2022, a contract signing ceremony and the symbolic breaking in of the first shovel took place at the City Stadium. The event was attended by, among others, the Minister of Development and Technology, the Governor of Łódź, the Mayor of the City, the President of the Sports and Recreation Center and the Board of the Skierniewice Union. Thus began the rebuilding of the stadium, which was to be completed by October 2023. Due to the work being carried out, at the beginning of the 2022/23 season Unia Skierniewice moved to a pitch in Nieborów, about 15 km to the north.

What does the redevelopment of Skierniewice City Stadium include?

As part of the reconstruction, the neglected athletics track will be removed and the facility will be transformed into a football-specific venue. The pitch will be shifted towards the north stand, which will be built from scratch and will receive a canopy. The existing south stand will also be completely demolished. Its place will be taken by the new main stand, which will be built slightly north of the previous one so that it is located right next to the pitch.

The new main stand will be fully covered and its first rows will be above the level of the pitch, giving spectators a better view. The central stand will be integrated into the new clubhouse. The new pitch will be equipped with a modern irrigation and drainage system.

The entire area around the stadium will undergo major changes, including new training pitches (some under roof), access roads, car parks, planting, and the tennis courts will also be modernized.
