Gdańsk Stadium in Gdańsk, Poland, will stage the 2021 UEFA Europa League final.
Opened in 2011, Gdańsk Stadium hosted four games at UEFA EURO 2012 – three group stage fixtures and Germany's 4-2 quarter-final win against Greece – and is home to Ekstraklasa side Lechia Gdańsk. Poland have played a number of international friendlies at the stadium, but the ground has yet to hold a match in UEFA club competition.
Located in the city's Letnica neighbourhood, the stadium's curved 45,000 square-metre exterior consists of 18,000 plates designed to resemble amber, which has long been extracted along the Baltic coast.
The stadium was originally intended as host venue for the 2020 final. However, the COVID-19 outbreak meant that on 17 June 2020, the UEFA Executive Committee decided to change the venues in line with the decision to stage the closing rounds of the 2019/20 competition in Germany.
