Stadion Prądniczanki – stadium description
Barely fitted within dense residential surroundings, Prądniczanka's stadium has been in operation since 1970s, almost entirely hidden from public view of people not aware where to find it. Having fallen into disrepair over the years, it attracted fewer people until redevelopment opportunity arrived in 2016. First the club offices were modernised, at the forefront of the stadium, then came time for the ground itself.
In 2017-19 the stadium was redefined, receiving a brand new main grandstand, 113 meters long. Larger than before and for the first time with roof over all seats, it retains club colours and mixed reinforced concrete with steel, with a touch of illuminated, profiled glazing. As part of the economic calculation, half of the seats are placed on cheaper and demountable steel structure.
Redeveloped ground received efficient lighting and, due to planned occupancy of the field, surface was changed from natural to synthetic. Unfortunately it proved impossible to create a regulation-sized field due to spatial constraints (final size 100x63m), which means even domestically the stadium would not hold games above the fourth tier.
