Stadion Łady Biłgoraj – stadium description
The municipal stadium in Biłgoraj lies in the north of town, beside the Nowa Łada river. Though it's been in operation for decades, the current form was created between 2009 and 2016, when all of the old ground was replaced gradually.
The first phase came in 2009, when a new indoor arena was built beside the stadium. It was extended eastwards in order to provide a covered section of new auditorium with 224 seats. Above them there's a restaurant with patio allowing visitors to enjoy a view of the stadium.
When the indoor arena was opened (worth PLN 22 million), construction of the second phase began. In 2010 the section of auditorium was extended along the whole west side of the stadium, which added 1,070 more covered seats, worth PLN 2.14 million. The result was heavily criticised due to obstructed views, lack of protection from wind and rain (uncovered backside of the stand) and very limited floor space below the auditorium.
Finally, in 2015-2016 the new playing field and running track followed. While the 6-lane track is modern and able to host major domestic events, the playing field is slightly too small to meet international standards (103x64m). The very last element of the stadium is its away section, added in 2016. However, as it has no actual grandstand inside, it's basically a humiliating pen where up to 200 people can be kettled.
#MisjaStadion: 27 out of 100 complete
We're not yet at one third of the 100 new or updated presentations but expect many more coming this month as we're closing to the final days of #MisjaStadion. Our mission is to reach the 100 and match 100 years of Polish independence by year end. Fingers crossed!
