NK Osijek – Pampas

NK Osijek Logo

In the heart of Croatia, NK Osijek has embraced a new era with the completion of their state-of-the-art stadium, Pampas (for sponsor reason it is currently named as Opus Arena) . This gleaming structure represents not only a significant leap forward for the club but also a symbol of the city’s passion for football. Founded in 1947, NK Osijek has been a prominent force in Croatian football. With a rich history that includes notable domestic achievements, the club has evolved into a powerhouse in the Prva HNL. Pampas Stadium, inaugurated recently, marks a pivotal chapter in the club’s journey. Pampas Stadium, the club’s new home, has emerged as a beacon of modernity in Croatian football infrastructure. The construction of this impressive facility reflects NK Osijek’s commitment to providing its fans with an unparalleled matchday experience.

The inaugural official match took place during the opening round of the SuperSport HNL season 2023/2024 on July 22, 2023. NK Osijek faced NK Slaven Belupo at 21:00, officiated by Jakov Titlić as the main referee. The game concluded with a commanding 6-1 victory for the home team, NK Osijek. Ramon Mierez secured the first official goal just four minutes into the match. A crowd of slightly over 9,000 spectators witnessed the match unfold.

To be fair, I was not very optimistic about TV camera angle on this new stadium, since it is low capacity and stands which are very low height in comparison with the modern new stadiums , but the architect made a fantastic job pa positioning main TV camera to the highest point possible on the western stand.

Main camera in the middle got 20 points which is not so terrible, but soon as the game starts you can see how terrible low camera is and on the top of that you have cameraman who zoom too much and the result is bellow as you can see, not very impressive 😏

Extra points

When watching Croatia Prva HNL, it is finally a pleasure to see what real football stadium looks like on TV. Crowd near pitch, high angle camera, perfect pitch quality and color, everything beautiful. That is why I gave an extra 10 points (HREN Bonus) for Opus Arena (Pampas Stadium).

Well done. 👏👍
