History and description

Stadion Miejski w Gdyni, also known as GOSiR Stadion, was built between 2009 and 2011 to provide Arka with a modern home.

The stadium officially opened on 19 February 2011 with an exhibition match between Arka Gdynia and Bulgarian side Beroe Stara Zagora, which had been the club’s first UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup opponent in 1979.

Stadion Miejski w Gdyni came at a cost of a little under PLN 80 million. It has served as the home of Baltyk Gdynia too, but they currently play their home matches at the nearby Narodowy Stadion Rugby.
