History and description

Stadion Miejski w Białymstoku opened in 2014. The stadium replaced Jagiellonia’s old stadium with the same name that had stood in its place since 1972.

By the mid-2000s the old stadium had fallen into disrepair and was taken over by the city, which opened the way to building a complete new stadium. Plans were presented in 2006 and demolition of the main stand started in 2008. The new stadium was to be built gradually so that Jagiellonia could keep playing at the ground.

However, the project soon fell to delays and in 2011 the contract between the city and the main contractor got terminated and both sides went to court to claim damages.

A new contractor was found, and in 2013 the new main stand was completed. Works then commenced on the other three sides and the complete new stadium opened on 9 October 2014. The first match was played 9 days later when Jagiellonia hosted Pogon (5-0).
