Strahov to Once More Shimmer in Prague

Strahov Stadiium in Prague
Walter Novak

Once the a shimmering gem of Czech architecture and to this day the largest stadium ever built, the Strahov complex in Prague is due for a major renovation that will return the stadium to its former glory. The Czech Sports Association has turned the facilities over to the Czech Football Association, who plan on overhauling the stadium starting next spring.

It is the relic of a bygone era, but now the aging Strahov complex appears set for something of a facelift. The complex's owner, the Czech Sports Association (ÈSTV), has agreed to sell two stadiums and various other facilities to the Czech Football Association (FAÈR) after ÈSTV members voted overwhelmingly in favor of the sale at their general meeting Dec. 1.


Under the agreement, the FAÈR will pay almost 129 million Kè ($6.7 million/5.1 million euros) for Stadion Ev?ena Rošického, the Pøátelství (Friendship) athletics ground and the Coubertin hotel, as well as some of the surrounding land.
