Stadion Miejski im. Henryka Reymana – stadium description

New ground for Wisla Krakow was constructed in several phases from 2004 to 2011. It's the 4th in history and first to be built in the very same spot the former used to stand in First came the south stand, then north. A multimedia pavillon came next in south-western corner.

Two massive stands alongside the pitch were being raised from June 2008 to October 2011. Overall cost of the ground is estimated at around PLN 600 million, resulting in criticism over high spending. Another reason for media attacks is the aesthetic side – municipal authorities claim the venue is brutalistic building and its primitive, rough appearence is a value. Then again, quality of materials used is significantly lower than the architects wanted, due to contractors changes.

Stadion Henryka Reymana

The concept along which it was built dates back to the beginning of 21st century, but it has been changed several times, most importantly when Krakow was hoping to host Euro 2012 games. Stands behind goals are part of the initial concept and have single tiers with little room for infrastructure underneath. Opposite are the two-tiered constructions alongside the pitch which offer a lot of space for offices, etc. Thanks to these two parts of the gorund its capacity exceeds 30,000 comfortably with number of seats at 33,326.

First official game with all four stands was played on October 15th 2011. Wisla won against Jagiellonia Bialystok in Polish Ekstraklasa fixture. Starting 2007 it bares the name of Henryk Reyman, the biggest legend of Wisla.

In the first half of 2023, the stadium underwent a modernisation worth almost PLN 100 million. The facility was renovated in connection with the organisation of the 2023 European Games. The project was made possible thanks to funding from the Ministry of Sport and Tourism, which amounted to more than PLN 80 million.

The work included the renovation of roof elements and the replacement of ventilation, air conditioning and heating installations. The most noticeable change, however, was the renovation of the exterior, which was enriched with a glass facade and gained a much more aesthetic appearance.

During the 2023 European Games, which took place from June 21 to July 2, the stadium hosted the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as matches of the rugby 7s tournament.
