Serbia’s FK Vojvodina to rebuild its Karadjordje stadium in Novi Sad

July 6 – The president of Serbian FK Vojvodina, Dragoljub Zbiljić, has announced that the club is starting a large-scale reconstruction of the Karadjordje Stadium in Novi Sad.

The construction works will start on October 1 this year, after which the Vojvodina team will play their home matches at the TSC Arena in Bačka Topola, which is located 75 km away from Novi Sad.

The decision was made after a meeting with the mayor of Novi Sad, Milan Đurić, and representatives of the Football Association of Serbia. In addition to a complete reconstruction, the stadium will also get a completely new field with hybrid grass.

The last reconstruction of the Karadjordje stadium, which has a capacity of 14,853 seats, took place in 2013. This year marks the 99th anniversary of the opening of one of the largest stadiums in Serbia.

Dragoljub Zbiljić said that the reconstruction of the stadium was on the list of priorities since the arrival of the new management in May last year.

“During the arrival of the current Board of Directors at the club, we highlighted the reconstruction of the stadium as one of the priority goals, and I can say with pleasure that we started to implement the promise in a record short period of time. Hereby, I have to express my gratitude to the City of Novi Sad and the Mayor Milan Đurić, as well as the leaders of the Football Association of Serbia for their support in the implementation of this joint project,”  Zbiljić.

“We would also like to thank his sports friends from TSC who have made it possible for Vojvodina to be the host in their stadium while the works on Karadorde stadium are in progress.”
