Today Andrův Stadion in Olomouc was reopened officially after 8 months of redevelopment works inside the main grandstand. Primary issue was the layout of rooms underneath spectator areas. Player, delegate and referee facilities had to be amended to comply with UEFA regulations.

As the stadium was quite recently improved (2010), the main stand was the only area that saw major reconstruction works. New entrance was added among other amenities.

Works cost CZK 80 million (€3m / $3.25m). 75% of the sum was covered by the Czech government, municipality and regional authorities contributed 10% each, while home team Sigma Olomouc added the remaining 5%.

Euro 2015 venues ready

The stadium in Olomouc was the last one upgraded ahead of UEFA Euro 2015 (U21). Two other venues saw improvements: Letna in Prague (we wrote about it here) and the municipal stadium in Uherské Hradiště.

Final game will be played at Slavia’s Synot Tip Arena, the only stadium that didn’t require any redevelopments. Opening is scheduled for June 17, final is planned on June 30.
