Stadion przy Traugutta – design description

How did the redevelopment of the stadium on Traugutta Street in Tarnów-Moscice come about?

In June 2019, Kraków and Małopolska were selected as the hosts of the 3rd European Games, to be held in 2023. In November 2021, an agreement was signed under which Tarnów officially joined the group of cities hosting the event. The disciplines scheduled to be played in Tarnow are sport climbing, badminton, beach handball and beach football.

In connection with the organization of the Games, reconstruction of the athletics and football stadium on Traugutta Street in Tarnów-Mościce is planned. A virtually new football facility is to be created there, which will be temporarily transformed into a Beach Sports Center for the duration of the European Games. The venue will host beach handball and beach football competitions.

The functional-utility programme and the concept for the new facility by engineer Tadeusz Surówka were created in December 2021. In February 2022, the city announced a tender for the design and construction of the stadium. In April 2022, the city received funding from the Ministry of Sport and Tourism and a contract was signed with the contractor, ANKO from Tarnów, which was the only company to submit a bid in the tender. The value of the contract is PLN 23.8 million, of which PLN 20.138 million was subsidized by the ministry and the rest was the local government's own contribution.

How is the construction of the new stadium on Traugutta Street in Tarnów-Mościce progressing?

The design documentation, based on a previously completed concept, was prepared by the ART Artur Grodziński office, a consortium member of the ANKO company. Once the documentation was completed, the first construction work began in August 2022, involving the demolition of elements of the existing stadium, including the running track and the rest of the earth embankment, which, together with the stands, had already been partially dismantled several years earlier. Preparatory work for the construction of the new elements had also begun.

In November, after obtaining planning permission, the actual construction work started. The work is due to be completed just before the Games, which start in June 2023. As the procedure for obtaining the building permit has taken some time, there are some concerns about whether the contractor will meet the investment deadline.

Once construction is complete, a sand pitch for beach sports is to be temporarily built on the stadium. Next to the stadium, in the area of the tennis courts, there will also be two training pitches with temporary stands accommodating around 200 spectators each.

What will the new stadium on Traugutta Street in Tarnów-Mościce be like?

The project involves decommissioning the existing athletics and football stadium and building a virtually new, football-specific venue in its place. The pitch is to be shifted slightly to the north. On the western side, a stand of reinforced concrete construction will be built to accommodate a minimum of 1,000 spectators (including at least 500 under the roof). The stand will have VIP and media seats.

The stand, with three tiers inside, will be equipped with full technical facilities (changing rooms, storerooms, administrative and catering areas) and sanitary facilities. There will be a sound and monitoring system, and the project also includes new parking spaces and a fence. The facility will be located in close proximity to the Municipal Stadium, the Arena Jaskółka Tarnów, the Mościce Art Center and the Tarnów Mościce railway station.

What are the further plans for the stadium on Traugutta Street in Tarnów-Mościce?

The decommissioning of the athletics stadium and the construction of a new reinforced concrete stand is the first phase of the investment, aimed primarily at preparing the facility for the European Games. After the Games, a second phase is planned, which involves the construction of a new pitch, equipped with a hybrid turf and heating system. In the third phase, a second stand is to be built on the eastern side, also accommodating a minimum of 1,000 spectators. The facility would then meet the requirements for playing first division matches.
