The project of the new stadium in Temesvár (Timișoara) is moving forward, and according to the plans, the new home of the ASU Poli football club will be finished in 2025. The Temes (Timiş) County Council submitted the technical-economic indicators of the new arena for approval on Friday.
President of the Temes County Council Alin Nica announced last week that the technical and economic indicators of the new stadium, which will be built on the location of the current arena, would be submitted for approval on Friday, June 11.
According to one of the plans proposed by the pre-feasibility study, which was chosen because of its best facilities-cost ratio, the new stadium of ASU Poli will have a capacity of 30,000 seats.
The new stadium will be built without an athletics track, with the stands close to the field. This decision was made after Alin Nica met with the leaders of Poli’s supporters, who did not agree with the athletics-track version.
According to Nica, the estimated cost of the investment will be almost EUR 122 million (including VAT), out of which the County Council will co-finance 11 million and the rest will be provided from the national budget through the National Investment Company (Compania Nationala de Investitii). After construction is complete, the arena will be handed over to the county.
The pre-feasibility study estimates the construction of the new stadium, including the preparation of the feasibility study and the design of the arena, could be finished within four years.
The old stadium was built between 1960 and 1964 and was later named after club legend Dan Pălinişanu, who played 271 matches between 1973 and 1983 in Temesvár. It is planned for demolition in the fall of this year.
