Euro 2012 Stadium Profile: National Stadium, Warsaw

Opened: 2011
Official capacity: 58,145
Highest attendance: Yet to stage a match


The ground sits on the site of the former stadium Stadion Dziesieciolecia, in the center of Warsaw. Due to its location, the stadium is easily accessible by bus, rail or tram.


Difficult to determine as the stadium is newly built. The true test will come when it hosts the opening Euro 2012 fixture on June 8, but a uniquely constructed roof should add to intrigue.

The stadium features a needle, held together by cables, in its centre from which the roof canopy unfolds over the pitch.
