Czech Rep: Legendary stadium brought back to life for one night Supporters of FC Zbrojovka Brno organised a very colourful pyrotechnics display, which changed their stadium into flaming inferno. There's just one thing – the stadium has been closed for a decade and is literally a ruin.

Yesterday in the afternoon supporters of Zbrojovka marched through the streets of Brno, chanting to celebrate their club's centenary. Grand finale took place at the historical home Za Lužánkami, the great stadium that hosted the club for 50 years and saw Zbrojovka's only championship in 1978, being among Czechoslovakia and Czech Republic's most recognised venues.

The centenary is tomorrow, but fans wanted to do their march on weekend as there were already fears of winter aura discouraging some people from coming. In the end it was a success with a couple thousand people coming.

The celebration is a bitter one, though, as the prospect of bringing Za Lužánkami back to life is a distant one despite several designs having been considered over the past few years. The ground has been closed in 2001, forcing the club to relocate.
