UEFA Capacity: 56,070
Tenants: Polish national team
Opened: January 2012

• Staged the opening game of UEFA EURO 2012, Poland's 1-1 draw with Greece, the first of three group matches. Also hosted the quarter-final between Portugal and Czech Republic, and the semi-final between Germany and Italy.

• Located on the eastern banks of the Vistula in the district of Praga Poludnie, its red-and-white facade resembles a waving Polish flag and it was designed by JSK Architekci, the company behind the Municipal Stadium Wroclaw.

• The last UEFA EURO 2012 venue to be completed, it opened with a big concert on 29 January 2012 and a month later hosted its first match as Poland drew 0-0 with Portugal. After EURO it will host American Football's Polish Bowl, and concerts by Madonna and Coldplay.

• The National Stadium is on the site of the old Tenth Anniversary Stadium which since 1989 had been home to a bazaar.

• The old venue, partly constructed using rubble collected from the site of the Warsaw Uprising, had stood since 1955. Primarily a football stadium, it also hosted athletics, cycling and, in 1983, Pope John Paul II gave mass to a congregation of 100,000.

• The last international at the old venue took place in April 1983 when an own goal from future Poland national team coach Paweł Janas restricted the hosts to a 1-1 UEFA European Championship qualifying draw with Finland.
