Club: FC Viktoria Plzeň | Opening: 1955 | Capacity: 11,700 seats
History and description
The DOOSAN Arena, until recently called Stadion Mesta Plzne, opened in 1955. It could at that time hold about 35,000 spectators, of which 7,600 seated.
The stadium hardly changed in the following decades, and had severely aged by the 2000s. Capacity had decreased to under 10,000 due to safety measures.
Plans were therefore made for a new stadium in the south-west of the city, but in the end it was decided to renovate Stadion Mesta instead.
Works began in 2011, and involved the demolition and reconstruction of three stands. Only the old main stand remained. The renovated stadium was completed in late 2011.
