Stadion Zdzisława Krzyszkowiaka – stadium description

Opened long before actually being complete, this stadium has been Bydgoszcz’s main sporting venue for several decades. As many venues in its early days, it belonged to the Polish army, which changed only in 2002, when military officials transferred it to the municipality.

This change gave it a great opening of the 21st Century. First came floodlights, plastic seats and scoreboard (still under military command) and then in 2008 majority of the slope stands were replaced with steeper, prefab structures.

Currently the redeveloped main grandstand accommodates a conference centre, museum of Bydgoszcz’s most famous sportsmen and a restaurant.

Thanks to its high standard over the years the ground, named in 2003 after 1960 golden medalist Zdzisław Krzyszkowiak, played host to numerous sporting events. That includes several games of Polish national team (though all but one were friendlies), Polish Cup final (2011) and also – if not most of all – dozens of track and field tournaments, both domestic and international.
