The documentary tells an extraordinary story of fan‘s devotion and dedication. The desire to save the beloved stadium led football fans and city patriots to an unprecedented manifestation of civil activism in an effort to change things from the bottom. The result of their efforts was eventually very well received by the world and that was not all. The documentary captures the theme of fanship in a completely new social perspective and reveals the phenomenon of identifying a person with urban space in the city.
A year after its premiere, the documentary Stadium was able to fly around the world on its festival pilgrimage and surprise by the power of its message. We have thus witnessed how the authentic story of the struggle for a beloved stadium becomes an object of admiration and inspiration for football fans and ordinary viewers on various corners of the planet. At the same time, the reactions of viewers have revealed to us how irresponsible treatment with the identity of a place is a universal problem, regardless of cultural or social differences.

For more than 5 years we have been working on an ambitious documentary project that aims to capture the current fate of the Lužánky Stadium through the perspective of fans and politicians in the field of returning Brno football to its traditional place.
The whole project as well as fan activities originated from the bottom, from the enthusiasm and the sense of importance to capture this phenomenon of Brno history and knowing that this authentic portrait can significantly help things. Unfortunately, however, we are not funded in any way and after literally thousands of hours spent filming and processing the material, we need help from you, people who are not indifferent to the project and who want to support this project.
In 2018 the film was premiered in Mexico City. In the Czech Republic it premiered in Brno on 7th November in the Scala cinema. At the same time, we continue shooting until the new stadium stands.
We will be happy for any voluntary contribution. Thank you in advance for your support!
