Stadion Garbarni – design description

Unlike almost all football clubs in Poland, Garbarnia Kraków are funding their stadium themselves. The project is possible because the club own their ground outright, as well as significant amount of land around it. The club thus managed to divide their assets and allow significant residential investment, in return for which they received funds for the project.

Eventually the stadium should meet UEFA Category 3 requirements, which includes 4,500 seated capacity with floodlights. Also, two training fields are planned. The new east stand, most exposed one, should see major commercial building conjoined with it, planned for hotel and potential offices.

The project's very first phase began back in 2014, when first of the two fields was created, west of the stadium. In 2015 the main field was rotated by 90 degrees, now please on the west-east axis rather then more conventional north-south one, which it used to follow.

Then in 2016 actual construction of a new club house began, ending with the year itself. Garbarnia expressed hopes to deliver the main grandstand (south) by the end of March, 2018. Until and after that date fans will be able to use old northern landfill stand, part of the previous layout. Whether two remaining grandstands (new north and east) will be built isn't clear.
