Bohemians 1905 may lose Ďolíček stadium
The City and Prague 10 disagree over the purchase of the stadium
Football club Bohemians 1905 is again facing a possible move to another stadium. Prague 10 has disagreed with the city on a joint memorandum concerning the purchase of Ďolíček stadium, where the club plays. The District Council for Prague 10 adopted a draft memorandum, but Prague City Hall disagrees with it. The stadium owner, the company Bohemians Real, is losing patience and said it will only wait until the end of autumn for an agreement. If no agreement is reached, Bohemians 1905 may have to seek a new venue.
Prague City Councilor Karel Grabein Procházka (ANO), who attended the Prague 10 Council meeting, said the problem was with 1 percent of the text, but didn't specify what it was. Procházka is responsible for Prague's assets.
The memorandum was worked on all summer, but Procházka said nobody in City Hall was involved. “We were very surprised that we did not get the comments, or the memorandum, but an ultimatum. Neither I nor anyone at City Hall have officially seen it,” he said.
Prague 10 Deputy Mayor Tomáš Pek (TOP 09) said that City Hall is holding the Prague 10 district hostage. “The devil is in the details,” he added, referring to the problematic 1 percent.
Darek Jakubowicz, director of Bohemians 1905, confirmed that a move was possible but the team would have to be given notice, so there was some time.
The dispute may involve a neighboring property that is used as a parking lot with 300 spaces. Prague has conditioned the purchase of the stadium on the return of the lot, but Prague 10 wants to use the lot for another two years.
There has been uncertainty since 2011 over the stadium. The football club has a lease for until the end of the competition season, but some clauses allow the contract to be terminated in September. Lukáš Eichinger of Bohemians Real said that if politicians do not find a solution, the space will be used for something other than football after September.
Prague 10 had tried to purchase the stadium two years ago, but the contract was not approved by City Hall.
The stadium opened March 27, 1932. The 2003 renovation changed the capacity to 13,388, with 3,028 seated. After a summer 2007 renovation the capacity was reduced to 9,000 with 3,800 seated. This was later changed to 7,500 with just seats.
