Stadion Sparty Szamotuły – stadium description
The municipal stadium Szamotuły has been the home of local team Sparta ever since the football side was established in 1922. Always in public property, the stadium was first managed by SOSiR, then in 2014 was transferred to SCS, new municipal entity.
It offers three independent stands on landfill, with only a section in the west being covered and equipped with player infrastructure. The north side is open, while the south remains terraces and is thus mostly unused. Total number of seats stands at 2,377.
Since 2012 the stadium is named after Stanisław Kurowski, local football coach who managed to lead the youth team from Szamotuły to national level of Polish championships in 1953, beating the renowned Górnik Zabrze in the process.
Due to low ticket demand, capacity is limited to roughly 990 for football games.
