HistoryEdit


The stadium is in the Čermeľ district, a multi-use stadium in Košice, Slovakia. It is currently used mostly for football matches as the home ground of VSS Košice since 1997. The stadium holds 10,787 (8,787 seated) spectators and was built in 1970. Initially, the stadium was used by Lokomotíva Košice and 1.FC Košice (now VSS) have played there since 1997 until last year. The Slovakia national football team played there a few matches, but the stadium does not meet UEFA criteria for international events today. The club planned the construction of a new stadium for 20,000 spectators in the neighbourhood of the old, disused Všešportový areál stadium.[2][3][4][5] The estimated cost of the stadium is 28 million. However, the construction was not launched and it is not clear when it starts.[6]
