Description: City Arena
In March 2013 demolition works began at the heart of Slovakian Trnava. One stand after another, three sections of the ground gave way, leaving only the west side untouched and allowing Spartak to host their games here during construction.
On Sept 20 groundbreaking ceremony took place with the corner stone being installed on site. Within 15 months three new stands are to be built, each with two tiers of covered seating.
The project was possible thanks to private funding by Euro MAX Slovakia, shopping centre developers. In return for funding the €15-16m stadium investors will have a retail complex adjoining the ground, together with over 1,000-capacity parking structures. The stadium is to be ready by the end of 2014.
Stadium of the Year 2015: Meet the nominee – City Arena Trnava
Slovakia’s largest stadium was built within a very reasonable budget and timely construction. Adding to that, it had serious spatial constraints, determining its final shape. And still it meets highest requirements.
New stadium: The Slovak gem from Trnava
It may not be a groundbreaking design, but it brings the much-needed breath of fresh air to Slovak football. Spartak Trnava have just inaugurated their new home.
