Stadion Polaru Wrocław – stadium description
It’s commonly known simply as Stadion Polaru, nicknamed after the home appliance manufacturer Polar, next to whose factory in north-eastern Wrocław the stadium was built. It was inaugurated in 1975 and since then retained its shape with one landfill stand.
It used to accommodate 1,800 people in its heyday, but even after Polar won promotion to the central level of Polish league system attendances rarely went close to 50%, even when Polar reached Polish Cup quarterfinal in 2003.
Since 2004 the stadium was no longer in line with upgraded regulations, forcing the club to move. Today it’s again used by Polar (which folded in 2006 and was re-established as an amateur team), but now part of the city’s Municipal Sports Center. Current operator allows 300 people inside.
