THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

Brno1The Stadion Za Luzankami in Brno, Czech Republic, once held around 50,000 people. Opened in 1953, it was home to FC Zbrojovka Brno until 2001, and hosted the record attendance at a Czech First League match, when 44,120 watched the home team take on Slavia Prague in 1996-97. Brno were forced to move in 2001 as the stadium no longer met FIFA and Czech football association criteria. Plans to renovate or rebuild the stadium were put on hold in June 2012, and it currently stands dilapidated, with trees and weeds growing from the terraces.
