Built in the north-westerly Maslice area of Wroclaw, Poland, the ground is situated close to the airport and can be easily accessed from the city centre by train and tram.

Atmosphere

The bowl design is designed to encapsulate crowd noise, while on its aesthetics, Uefa Euro 2012 ambassador Zbigniew Boniek commented: "When I look at it I can't help but regret that back in my day we had to play in stadiums that looked like chicken coops. What a shame it is my playing career is over."
