The stadium is currently owned by the City of Stalowa Wola.

HistoryEdit

The previous stadium that was located in this place was called "Stadion Miejskiego Ośrodka Sportu i Rekreacji" (English: Stadium of the Municipal Sports and Recreation Center). It was one of the first buildings in Stalowa Wola built in the late 1930s, with a maximum capacity of 12,000.[6]

Works related to the construction of the new stadium started in June 2011, with demolition of the stand on the side of the Hutnicza Street. Currently there is the roofed stand with a capacity of 1,430 seats in its place. In 2016 (that is considered to be the Podkarpackie Centrum Piłki Nożnej construction start year), demolition and construction of the west stand works started.[7] The planned capacity of the stadium was to be 10,000 places. Ultimately it has 3,764.

Podkarpackie Centrum Piłki Nożnej opened in 2020. In the first match at the new stadium, on February 29, 2020, Stal drew 0–0 with Bytovia Bytów (it was also the inauguration of artificial lighting). During the 2020–21 season Stal Stalowa Wola was supposed to share the stadium with the I liga side Resovia, because their home stadium in Rzeszów was being renovated then.[8] On October 23, 2020, the latter team decided to play at the Rzeszów City Stadium.[9]

On 8 February 2021, it was announced that PCPN will host home games of II liga club Stal Rzeszów, due to the renovation of the Rzeszów City Stadium.[10] They would play here games against Pogoń Siedlce (1–5), Znicz Pruszków (1–0), Błękitni Stargard (2–2), Garbarnia Kraków and KKS 1925 Kalisz.

On 27 February 2021, the PCPK training pitch hosted the III liga game – Wólczanka Wólka Pełkińska (serving as a host) were defeated 0–1 by Wisła Puławy.[11] On 7 March 2021, the III liga Sokół Sieniawa game against Wólczanka was also played on the training pitch.[12]

In April 2021, the stadium hosted the regional Polish Cup final – Stal Stalowa Wola 0–0 (p. 6–5) Siarka Tarnobrzeg game.[13]

National team tournamentsEdit

In March and April 2020, the UEFA Development Tournament matches were to take place at the stadium. The participants were to be Poland U-16, Venezuela U-16, Iceland U-16 and Iran U-16. On 18 March 2020, the tournament was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the epidemiological threat in Poland.[14]
