Stadion Widzewa – construction description
Preparatory works, site clearing and demolition of the old stadium started in December 2014, after which delivery of the new ground should take roughly 2 years. Single-tiered seating bowl will allow for 18,018 people to get inside the stadium, while also providing for easy expansion.
Very simple in terms of structure, the stadium will have a distinctive main western stand. There the architectural concrete and glass will be combined with brick cladding, loosely associated with the city’s industrial heritage. Aside of the main stand, all other parts of the stadium will be covered only with decorative mesh in a cost-cutting attempt.
The impressive side will house nearly all necessary infrastructure on four floors. Facilities for players, club offices, hospitality (including 24 skyboxes) and media zones will all be located here. Additionally, the southern stand (for most dedicated fans) will have ground floor commercial spaces for lease.
New stadium: Grand (re)opening for Widzew
Today is the day that will go in history. Not just the history of 107-year-old Widzew, but that of Polish football as well. The new stadium in Łódź is ready for tonight’s opening game.
Poland: Widzew celebrates 10,000 season tickets sold
Doesn’t sound too impressive? It’s a 4th league club that’s just getting back on its feet after having collapsed. And they’ve set high prices, too!
Poland: Second stadium in Łódź ready for handover
Even if a couple months late, it’s still built rather timely when compared to many other stadia of its size. The 18,000-capacity stadium in Łódź will open in March for its first league game.
Poland: Record-breaking season ticket sale in 4th league
