Stadionul Giulești – design description
The old Giulesti stadium in Bucharest will be entirely replaced as part of preparations to Euro 2020, during which it will serve as a training venue. Due to the site being spatially constrained, decision was made to create double tiers along both side with significany overhangs and rounded edges.
Behind each goals there's much more room, enough even to plan training infrastructure for long jump and a modest running track with 3 lanes. A separate covered running track for sprinters is planned beneath one stand. Additionally, accommodation for athletes is planned, able to house 28 people.
The stadium should reach capacity of 14,000 seats and will offer a vast floor space of 40,491 m2 due to five levels of facilities being created. The entirety is planned within a reasonable budget of RON 121 million, though it was later revised upwards, to 165 million.
Romania: Rapid to be host at new Giulești
The stadium with a price tag of €37.5 million is to accommodate just over 14,000 spectators and will be the new home of Rapid. Stadionul Giulești is ready - almost exactly two years after the groundbreaking.
Bucharest: Rapid’s stadium impressive but still late
It was supposed to be a Euro 2020 training venue but even the extra year wasn’t enough. Now Rapid has to look for alternative home, proper inauguration is expected in autumn.
Bucharest: Goodbye, Giulești
Legendary second stand is no more, just like the iconic tower from 1939. The main stand is the next to go, while construction of new Rapid stadium is still pending planning permission. With 14 months until opening, there's not enough time to deliver all of the project ahead of Euro 2020.
Bucharest: Contractor selected for new Giulești
Three companies have joined forces to deliver the new Rapid Bucuresti stadium, training venue of Euro 2020. There's very little time left, but the price still stayed within set limits.
New design: Easy, it's only a training stadium
With Euro 2020 coming ever closer Romania is speeding up the preparation process. New Rapid stadium may only be a secondary venue and serve training purposes, but it needs to be built in time nevertheless.
