Stadion AWF Katowice – stadium description
Main athletic stadium in Katowice predates the college it belongs to by nearly half a century. Sport was practiced here since 1925, while AWF opened in 1970.
Currently the stadium has one landfill stand along its northern side, accommodating 1,200 seated viewers. It was entirely renovated in 2008 by municipal and regional authorities (for roughly $1m). Due to its proximity to the E40 (Europe’s major highway – just 30 meters south of the stadium), it was subject to controversy, feared to be sold for private investment.
New design: Second best stadium of Upper Silesia?
Not for football in this case, it’s time for athletics in Poland’s most populated region. Katowice University of Physical Education might get Upper Silesia’s second best track and field stadium.
