Arena Biała Podlaska – design description
New stadium in Biała Podlaska will stand exactly where the old one, built in 1970s, currently is. Its layout will be completely different, though. Only the field will remain roughly where it now is, but the outline of former running track will be forgotten and the main grandstand will in the future be located along the east side of the field.
The new stadium will be a compact, football-specific one, wrapped in modern outer cladding. Only the north-eastern corner stands out as it has an indoor sports hall planned, with use by nearby secondary school as its main purpose.
Final capacity may reach 7,800 people but the project will be phased. First the indoor hall and main eastern grandstand will be built, securing all primary uses of the stadium from phase one. Interestingly, the aim is also to provide the outer skin from the very start, creating a feeling of completeness with even one stand for just 3,300 people.
Second phase will include the west stand for 1,500 people. Additional grandstands in the north and south (for 1,300 and 1,700, respectively) will be built in the future, should demand warrant such expansions. This would allow the stadium to hold even Ekstraklasa games.
New design: More compact plan for Biała Podlaska
Contractors have two weeks to submit their bids for the construction of a new stadium in Biała Podlaska. Unlike the first (and failed) design, this time the project has a much reduced scale.
