Description: Stadion Floriana Krygiera
In late 2013 the municipality of Stettin selected the winning concept of Stadion Floriana Krygiera redevelopment. The scheme was to include the existing landfill stands in the west (curve) and south, while a new north side would come with all UEFA-required infrastructure to meet Category 3 requirements (later upgraded to Cat 4). All of the stadium was to receive a canopy protecting 18,000 people, almost unchanged capacity.
In 2014 evaluation proved that the south and west stands need to have their structure replaced, meaning they would be practically built from scratch. Despite immense inflation of the cost (from PLN 48 to well over 100 million), the city decided to stick to the plan.
After almost entirely negative feedback and intensive campaigns from host club Pogoń, the supporters and media, in 2015 the city gave in and agreed to reconfigure the west end into a more rectangular form, bringing fans as much as 22 meters closer to the field.
In 2016, following further campaigns, the city caved in once again and agreed for a fourth stand to be added in the east, enclosing the stadium entirely and raising capacity by some 4,000. The new stand also increased available floor space, including two level of facilities overlooking the field.
Finally, in 2017 another company, Dedeco, took over the planning. First announced only as finalisation of the previous concept, it turned out to bring crucial changes to the stadium's appearance and and size. Capacity was brough down again, this time to 20,000, the roof will no longer be translucent and all of the stadium will be covered by black metallic mesh.
Poland: Hyperinflation – the issue for Szczecin
In April it was 245 million, by June already 272m, then 285m and now the only offer filed in repeated tender is worth 364 million. It's hard to imagine that it was thought to be a 50-million project back in 2013.
New design: If only this was Szczecin's official concept...
Upon first seeing it we thought: impressive but surely much more expensive than the official stadium scheme for Szczecin. But when the official tender brought bids exceeding expectations by 93% (!!!), we take it back. This vision would have been better and not certainly more expensive.
Poland: Tender launched for Szczecin stadium
As announced, the construction tender for new 20,500-seat stadium and training academy is ready. However, the project's budget has grown once more, making it the most expensive stadium being planned in Poland at present.
Poland: Big changes in Stettin stadium design
Structurally it's almost the same. Visually, though? A completely different stadium! Reduced in capacity and more black, the new 20,500-seater in Stettin will go under construction later this year.
Poland: Contracts signed, new details from Stettin
On Monday authorities signed contracts necessary to finish design works for the new Stettin stadium. We also know the time frame and budget, even if not too detailed yet.
Poland: Finally a happy ending in Stettin?
After many months of fierce conflict, now everyone’s on board to create the best possible stadium in Stettin. Larger than previously expected, the stadium should be presented soon.
New design: Opposition gaining ground in Stettin
What seemed to be a PR stunt at first, now is gaining momentum. Opposition against the municipal reconstruction plan for Stettin stadium has a new face: stadium identical to the one in Lodz.
Poland: Fate sealed for Stettin stadium?
Supporters oppose, the club draws a counter-vision. And yet the city of Stettin persist with their controversial redevelopment plan. No social consultation was conducted.
Independent design: Splendid stadium for Stettin that won’t be…
Dynamic, modern and with future expansion envisaged from the start. But this impressive concept from Stettin isn’t official, which may frustrate Pogoń Szczecin supporters even more than their current situation…
