Club: Korona Kielce | Opening: 2006 | Capacity: 15,500 seats
History and description
The Kolporter Arena, also known as Stadion Miejski w Kielcach, was built in the place of Kielce’s old stadium that had stood at the same site. Construction of the new stadium started in 2004, and was completed two years later.
Stadion Miejski w Kielcach officially opened on the 1st of April 2006 with a league match between Korona Kielce and Zagłębia Lubin. The new stadium came at a cost of PLN 48 million.
In 2012, the Kolporter Arena hosted the Polish Cup final after other stadiums turned out to be unavailable due to various reasons.
Getting to the Kolporter Arena
The Kolporter Arena is located just south of Kielce’s city centre. The walk from the central market square (Rynek) takes about 15 minutes, the walk from the railway station about 5 minutes more.
If coming from the S7 north (Warsaw), take the 73 into town. At the southern end of the city centre turn right (at the roundabout) onto the 786 Seminaryjska. After just under a kilometre slide left onto Jana Pawla II. After an obligatory right turn, turn immediately left again following the square until you reach Jana Pawla again (which is now called Ściegiennego). Turn right. The stadium will lie shortly ahead on the right side of the road.
If coming from the south, take the 762 into town. The 762 will turn into Krakowska avenue. Turn right just before reaching Jana Pawla (at the beginning of the square). Follow the square on the right until reaching Ściegiennego, and turn right.
Address: ul. Ściegiennego 8, Kielce
