Vítkovice stadium ready to welcome world stars
At the end of the last week, HOCHTIEF CZ, which has been carrying out stage II of reconstruction works at the Vítkovice stadium, temporarily handed over the stadium into the hands of the investor. According to the agreed time schedule HOCHTIEF CZ had to undertake that the reconstruction would not interfere with this year´s Golden Spike taking place on 26 May 2015. The stadium is thus even before completion of the last stage of the reconstruction ready for new challenges to the word records. A sprinter Usain Bolt stated some time ago that he was looking forward to his seventh start at the Golden Spike and that a contest on a newly reconstructed stadium motivated him to achieve the best result.
For several years now, the modern arena has been the venue of a world track and field competition, the Golden Spike, and from September 2015 it will have been prepared, among others, for football matches of both national and international nature. After the end of this year´s athletic competition the stadium will be handed over back to HOCHTIEF CZ to finish the remaining reconstruction works by September 2015.
