Všesportovní Stadion – stadium description

The largest stadium in Hradec Kralove and one of the biggest across Czech Republic was opened in 1960, though hardly finished at that time. But as the local team played in the top league at that time, demand for tickets was very high and required a proper venue.

This is why during the 1960/61 the record game against Slavia Praha (then Dynamo Praha) drew stunning 25,000 people. Official capacity including benches was 17,000.

A new chapter in the stadium’s history began in the twenty-first century, after FC Hradec Kralove succeeded in again reaching the top league. Between 2007 and 2011 the stadium underwent several renovation works, resulting in all-seater capacity of over 7,000. However, the dated structure required replacement and a new stadium is planned.

The stadium is commonly known as “Under the lollipops”. This name refers to four 55-meter tall floodlight masts shaped to resemble lollipops.
