Stadion Mieszka Gniezno – stadium description
Erected in 1974, the central stadium of Gniezno and home to football side Mieszko was built largely in a sunken bowl. With its massive western slope providing a 'kop stand' of unique proportion in Polish football, the stadium was thought to accommodate some 8,000 people.
That number was almost doubled in 1989, when Mieszko reached for the biggest success to date, getting through to Polish Cup quarterfinal and losing to Legia 0:5 in front of 15,000 people.
Today's stadium is just a shade of that great history with just minor sections along the pitch being renovated and equipped with over 2,000 seats.
