Stadionul Tineretului – stadium description

The stadium along eastern exit route from Urziceni was built in 1976 and served local side Unirea. The team spent vast majority of their history in lower divisions until takeover by Dumitru Bucşaru. Their new rich owner led to promotions up to the top flight and even a championship title in 2009. To get there Unirea had to make numerous provisions at the stadium, expanding it and renovating three times.

Unfortunately Bucşaru also proved to be the club and stadium’s end. In 2011 Unirea was dissolved after mounting debt disabled any existence. Re-established with grassroots support it’s now an amateur team without the need or financial ability to use/sustain the big stadium. Left unused, the building went into despair very fast.
