The Stadion Za Lužánkami is a currently inactive stadium in Brno, Czech Republic. It was primarily used for football, and was the home ground of FC Zbrojovka Brno. It held 50,000 people.

The stadium was constructed 1949-1953 and in the 1960s-1970s was the biggest stadium in Czechoslovakia. Za Lužánkami holds the record for the highest attendance in the Gambrinus liga,[1] set in a match in the 1996–97 Gambrinus liga between Brno and Slavia Prague. It was closed in 2001 after 1. FC Brno moved to Městský fotbalový stadion Srbská.[2] The club was forced to move, since the stadium did not meet the football association and FIFA criteria. The stadium is currently dilapidating.

There are plans for a reconstruction of the stadium, whereby the team of FC Zbrojovka Brno would return.[3] In June 2012, it was announced that due to financial concerns, the proposed reconstruction was on hold.[4]
