Regie Stadium

Regie Stadium, also known as Sportul Studenţesc Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Bucharest, Romania. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Sportul Studenţesc. The stadium has 10,020 seats.

History

The stadium was originally built in the 1920s, and until the Second World War it belonged to Belvedere FC. During that time, the stadium had only one West stand and also an oval athletic track around the pitch. In 1955, the stadium changed ownership from CAM (Casa Autonoma a Monopulului) to the Ministry of Education. Consequently the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest and its football club, Stiinta (later Politehnica, and now Sportul Studenţesc), was allowed to train and play their home games here.

In 1972, after FC Sportul Studenţesc promoted to the Romanian First Division, the stadium was renovated for the first time. With the help of, back then TMUCB Director, Mr. Barbu Emil "Mac" Popescu, the athletic track was removed and the North, South, and East stands were built. Soil excavated from the construction of the Bucharest subway system was used to build the aforementioned stands.

In 2004, following FC Sportul Studenţesc's latest promotion to the Romanian First Division, the stadium was renovated yet again in order to meet FIFA's latest safety, occupancy, and access requirements. One of the most noticeable aesthetic changes to the stadium was the installation of white plastic seats, thus reducing its capacity from 15,000 to 10,020.
