Description: Stadion ŁKS-u Łódź
New stadium for the renowned ŁKS team is being born in phases. Its design was obtained by the city of Łódź in 2011, during an eventually failed attempt at public-private partnership. The city decided to use the documents and pursue the plan of building a new arena just meters north from the old stadium and nearby Atlas Arena.
The stadium should eventually hold 16,000+ people in horseshoe layout and over 20,000 when fully enclosed. During the first phase only the western main grandstand was built (2013-2015), holding under 6,000 people.
The project consumed PLN 94.4 million, raising many eyebrows with the budget. However, this grandstand holds all necessary infrastructure to hold games and in terms of capacity meets the standards of Polish top tier. One thing not built yet is the floodlighting system, which will top the roof once another stand is delivered.
Unfortunately during the implementation ŁKS was dissolved and reborn on amateur level. As the club is making its way back to the top tier, the municipality pledged to launch further phases of the project when demand is sufficient.
Poland: Safe standing just one step away
After two years we're finally just a step away from safe standing being legal in Poland. Supporters should expect the law to go into effect before year end!
Poland: Three stands announced for ŁKS
They will raise capacity by 12,000 or even 14,000 people. A lot for a third league club, right? But this stadium's history was always supposed to end that way.
