Stadionul Municipal Sibiu – historical stadium description
The municipal stadium in Transilvanian city of Sibiu dates back to 1927. It was built south of the centre with a wooden grandstand (north-west) and smaller sections on remaining sides.
New landfill stands with 12 rows joined the wooden grandstand in 1977-1981, providing additional 12,000 capacity. Then in 1982 the stadium’s shape as we know it was finished with a much greater new grandstand, this time concrete, covered and with training infrastructure underneath. Altogether the building could then hold some 24,000 people.
Last major renovation came in 2011, when local team Voința was promoted to Romania’s top division. This is when conversion to all-seater was finished with 9,000 new seats. Unfortunately the club was disbanded just a year later and the stadium remains without a professional tenant.
