All the seats should offer good visibility and comfort for viewers. The design has to take care of such matters as security, emergency exit, buffet organization, toilets and medical service, locker rooms for football teams, referees with the necessary infrastructure, artificial light systems, voice and visual information delivery systems, advertising. The design has to be compliant with all the FIFA and UEFA requirements for fourth-category stadiums.
As an option the architects can use the space under the stands to place an underground parking lot for 300-500 cars and 3-4 buses, a cafe, restaurants, bars, souvenir stalls, shops. The space under the stands can also be used to house sport gyms.
Reviewing the submitted designs, the organizers evaluate the originality of the idea, the compliance of the design with the terms of the contest, the cost of the design implementation, the effectiveness of using the space and the infrastructure, the quality of the submitted graphic materials.
