Description: Stadion Garbarni

The stadium on Rydlówka St. became the home of Garbarnia after forced exodus from the beautifully located home ground just opposite the Wawel Castle. The shift didn’t come soon though, the club was homeless from 1973 to 1990, when they finally managed to open their new stadium on Rydlówka. Much less impressive than the previous one, it was at least located in Garbarnia’s spiritual home.

Football-layout stands were built as a partly-sunken bowl of 11 rows, shaped to resemble the letter C. The east side was left opened. Together the three sides with terracing were able to hold roughly 5,000 people, but after installation of metal benches capacity fell to some 1,000 seated fans.

Until 2013 the ground had a modest covered section for 100 members of the press and VIPs. That element was torn down to make way for another training field, this time west of the main pitch.
