[PHOTOS] Rijeka’s New Waterfront Stadium


Croatian first division side Rijeka are set to build the first major stadium in the country since 1978, when Hajduk Split’s Poljud stadium was built…

Rijeka architects Siniša Zdjelar and Gino Zavanello are the authors of the 25-million euro Kantrida stadium project. The stadium, which will have 20,000 m2 of open space, will have a 14,000 capacity (seated). Besides being used for football, there are also plans for the stadium to be home to a hotel, shopping centre and restaurant and bars.


Rijeka’s honorary president, Italian oil magnate Gabriele Volpi, is behind the investment, which has also seen a new 5,000-seat stadium and camp built in Rijeka. The new stadium is being used by the club until the Kantrida stadium is complete.
