Stadion Miejski w Świdniku – stadium description

The initial stadium at Sportowa 2 St. was opened in 1964 and had drawn crowds of even 7,000 people despite its 5,000 capacity. However, having only small landfill stands, the ground needed to give way to its successor in October 2012.

Construction suffered from several setbacks, but eventually the entire project was delivered in under 2 years. Two grandstands were built – main in the south and slightly smaller one on the opposite side. A training field, 140 parking bays and complete renovation of the existing club headquarters were also part of the PLN 18 million scheme (10 million came from EU funds).

Opening ceremony took place in the summer of 2014, gathering 2,500 people for an exhibition game against one of Poland’s most notable clubs, Widzew.
