Za Lužánkami (1953-2001)Za Luzankami (1953 - 2001)

23.08.2016: The legendary Stadion Za Luzankami was built in 1949-1953 in Brno, the second biggest city in the Czech Republic. In the 1960s and 1970s a new stand was built, thus bringing the stadium capacity to 50,000. There were mostly standing areas and Luzanky was often packed to capacity. It was common that matches were watched by 30,000 spectators. However, as time went by no renovation works were carried out and the stadium failed to meet the norms applied to first league stadiums and it was eventually closed in 2001. It came back to life in June 2015 when Petr Svancara, a former Zbrojovka Brno player, played his farewell match at Za Luzankami.

That is why the stadium was designed so as to be easily adapted to the needs of West Ham, a Premier League club. What they particularly needed was a lower capacity and closer contact between players and fans. This was achieved by lowering the roof and installing a retractable lower seating area.
