Lokomotiv Stadium (Lauta Park) History
Lokomotiv Stadium first opened in 1982 with a capacity of 24,000 and is designed at the heart of a wider municipally owned sporting complex which serves the city of Plovdiv.
The record attendance to date appears to be have been set in the 1983 season when Chernomorets visited for a friendly at the start of the season. Officially the game was sold out, however unofficially it is estimated that 33,000 supporters were in attendance. The stadium’s capacity has been reduced over the years as increasingly stringent safety legislation is introduced by UEFA.
When Lokomotiv Plovid became Champions of Bulgaria at the end of the 2003/2004 season, jubilant celebrations saw some of the northern stand collapse which reduced the capacity of the ground to 11,800.
There are currently plans to expand the stadium by rebuilding the northern-stand and other sections of the ground. Work began on 29th March 2013 and is set to be complete at an indeterminate date in the future.
