Euro 2012 Stadium Profile: Municipal Stadium, Poznań

Opened: 1980
Official capacity: 41,609
Highest attendance: 45,000
Lech Poznan v Widzew Lodz,
April '84


The stadium is situated in the southwestern part of Poznan. Poznan's green and yellow buses are the best way to reach the ground from the city center, while a second tram line to complement the current one running to the north of the city will also be ready by the tournament's opening.


High, sloping stands and a roof which looms over part of the pitch should ensure noise levels remain high during fixtures.
