Darius and Girėnas Stadium

First stadium in Lithuania to meet UEFA category 4 standards!
Darius and Girėnas Stadium is the first sports arena, to meet UEFA Category 4 standards in Lithuania. The renovation process lasting almost four years is scheduled to be finished in 2022. Recent upgrades will allow sports fans to enjoy competitions and sports events even during the cold and rainy seasons. The area which is equipped with a hybrid coating adapted for use in various weather conditions reaches up to 7,140 m2. More than 33 kilometers of Uponor Pex-a pipes were used to install the system.
During the reconstruction of the stadium, not only the infrastructure for sports activities was renewed, but new, comfortable lodges with a capacity of more than 15 thousand spectators were added as well.
