Located

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

Atmosphere

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.

Did You Know?

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