Poland : City Stadium (Poznań)



City Stadium (Polish: Stadion Miejski), is a Association football stadium in Poznań, Poland. It is the home ground of Lech Poznań and Warta Poznań, and is one of the venues for the finals of Euro 2012. It has a league capacity of 43,269 (all seated). The stadium was originally built between 1968 and 1980. From its inauguration in August 1980 Lech Poznań has used the ground as its main venue; since 2010 it has also been used by Warta Poznań, which currently plays in I Liga. The ground is situated on the street ul. Bułgarska in the southwestern part of the city (Grunwald district).


In the years 2003–2010 the stadium underwent a complete reconstruction, including the building of four new fullly covered stands. Currently it is the fifth largest stadium in Poland (after National Stadium, Silesia Stadium, The Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw and PGE Arena Gdańsk) and third largest in Ekstraklasa (after the latter two). The grand opening after final renovation took place on 20 September 2010, with Sting's Symphonicity Tour concert.
