The home of the Polish football club Jagiellonia Bialystok, the Bialystok City Stadium, is the new stadium that was built on the very site of the club's former home ground that bore the same name as of the new stadium. The old ground, dating back to 1972, was in a state of woeful disrepair by the mid-200os and it was then that the city of Bialystok decided that a new ground was called for. Accordingly, plans were made and submitted in 2006 and the work on the new stadium began 2 years later.
The demolition of the old ground and the construction of the new had to be done simultaneously and gradually so that Jagiellonia could keep using the ground. However, the project found itself into troubled waters after a disagreement broke out between the city and the chief constructor both of whom moved the court in 2011 to claim damages.
Fortunately, however, the matter was cleared up and not long after, the construction work was resumed with a new contractor. By 2014, the work on the new stadium was complete and the inauguration took place on October 9, 2014. The new stadium, also known as the Bialystok Municipal Stadium, has a capacity of 22,000 and is located at a distance of some 3 kms from the city center.Places nearby:
