Velenje's City Stadium is situated in a beautiful partially wooded area near Škale Lake, about 3km from the city centre. It boasts a full-sized artificial turf football pitch, an eight-lane athletics track and covered seating for nearly 2000. The larger premises also include outdoor handball and basketball courts, as well as a separate football pitch for trainings and youth matches - the latter of which can be a fun way to spend time on weekend mornings during the season without spending any money. The stadium is home to the NK Rudar Velenje football club, which was promoted back to the Slovenian first league (PrvaLiga) in 2008 after spending a couple of years relegated to the second league. See the official club website for match schedule and ticket info.
