A modern 5,000-seater is to replace outdated and only facelifted venue in Elbląg, Poland. With four independent stands and place to expand if necessary it should be built within a tight €8.5m budget.
Elbląg Municipality has just launched their first tender regarding new stadium construction. By October 1st they plan to find contract engineer who would oversee the documentation and further phases leading to a new stadium.
What are they planning to build? Surely everything has to be started from scratch and no part of the existing municipal stadium is to be left standing, not even the club office building adjacent to the ground. Four independent stands are to accommodate 5,000 people with full cover. The stadium should also have floodlights to satisfy league regulations (1,200 lux for 1 Liga).
Behind end stands 104 parking lots are to be created. That’s far from sufficient which was one of the reasons for the project to be at risk with search for a different location turning no results. Apart from the stadium itself there will be two training pitches (natural and synthetic) next to the stadium and several more with athletics track near neighbouring secondary school.
The project has a very tight budget of just 35m zloty (€8.5m) of which 11,8m zloty (€2,9m) is to be transferred from the European Union’s ERDF program.
