HistoryEdit

The stadium was built in 1951. First match played here was Dinamo – Locomotiva Timișoara 1–0, on 14 October 1951.

In 2001, floodlights were added, and in 2006 a major renovation of the stadium began, enlarging the VIP section, and raising the capacity of the Tribune 2 stand. However, due to lack of funding the renovation has still not been completed. There are now plans to build a new arena, but administrative problems make progress very slow-going. New seats and a new scoreboard were added.[when?] Many important matches were held here including Dinamo against Everton and Bayer Leverkusen.

In April 2001, as the ground was broken during the work for the stadium's first renovation, a Second World War shell was discovered and extracted from a pit 20 meters away from the stands.[2]
