The essential task is to design a concept of a hypothetical new stadium in the City of Brasov which is going to be a successor of historical Silviu Ploeșteanu Stadium where SR Brașov currently plays its games as a host. New stadium by Strada Stadionului, first of all should provide a comfortable conditions for watching football matches for up to 20,000 viewers with unchanged orientation of the playing field. In addition, new western and southern stands should not significantly obstruct the view from the top of the grandstand (northern) at the Tâmpa mountain and the landscape of the Eastern Carpathians.

Also, the priority for „Stegaria” supporters is to honor the memory of the stadium’s patron not only in its potential commercial name, but also on the façade in the form of a well-visible and elegant signboard. In addition, the fans wish the stands behind the goals to be designed so close to playing filed as possible!
