Polish 4th league club Widzew Łódź have stunned football fans around Europe when they announced that for the spring round of the 2016 / 17 season, they had already sold over 10,000 season tickets. One week later, the club announced that they have hit the 15,000 mark, breaking the Polish record in season ticket sales.
It was only last week, when football Europe talked about a Polish fourth league club, selling over 10,000 season tickets for the 2016 / 17 spring season. Only one week later, Widzew Łódź announced that it had sold over 15,000 season tickets and is actually forced to stop selling.
For two years, the club and fans have been waiting for their stadium. Widzew played most of their 5th and 4th league matches at the SMS stadium in Łódź, usually attended by a full house.
With their new and flush 18,000 seater stadium ready for action, the club has sold over 15,000 season tickets, breaking Lech Poznan’s previous record of 15,056 in 2011. However, Lech sold these tickets while being in Ekstraklasa.
Widzew will start the second round of the season with an away match on Sunday before welcoming Motor Lubawa at the new stadium on the 18th of March at 19:10……. of course, in front of a full crowd.
