Stadion Widzewa – design description

Ahead of the complete re development of Widzew Łódź’s stadium, the single-tiered seating bowl will allow for 18,008 people to get inside the stadium, while also providing for easy expansion.

Very simple in terms of structure, the stadium will have a distinctive main western stand. There the architectural concrete and glass will be combined with brick cladding, loosely associated with the city’s industrial heritage. Aside of the main stand, all other parts of the stadium will be covered only with decorative mesh in a cost-cutting attempt.

The impressive side will house nearly all necessary infrastructure on four floors. Facilities for players, club offices, hospitality (including 24 skyboxes) and media zones will all be located here. Additionally, the southern stand (for most dedicated fans) will have ground floor commercial spaces for lease.

Demolition of the old stadium is to start in December 2014, after which delivery of the new ground should take roughly 2 years.
