Stadion Stali Mielec – stadium description

Already in 2007 it was decided that investing further funds in temporary improvement of the deteriorated old stadium wasn’t viable as neither the municipality of Mielec nor Stal as a club needed the huge stands built for once-powerhouse of Polish football.

Thus it was decided that upper tiers along the field will be dismantled, while lower ones renovated extensively and covered. This brought capacity to just over 30% of the old one with seats replacing benches.

Work was initially priced at 36.5 million zloty by the municipality, but in the end proved more expensive, ending at 41 million. Work began in early 2011, following the old stadium’s closure in 2010. Estimated to be delivered in exactly two years, the stadium proved more difficult to handle for Tamex and was opened 7 months overdue, almost driving the home club to insolvency.  

The new stands were opened in August 2013 as 5,000 fans witnessed their club’s first game in central tier (3rd) of Polish football after 16 years of absence. Thanks to good performance of Stal after their return to the central level, the stadium had to receive under-soil heating by 2018 in order to meet I Liga requirements.
