Stadion Miejski w Wrocławiu

Key facts

Club: WKS Śląsk Wrocław | Opening: 2011 | Capacity: 44,901 seats

History and description

Stadion Miejski w Wrocławiu (Municipal Stadium Wrocław) was built to serve as a playing venue for the Euro 2012 tournament. Construction started in 2009 and was completed in January 2011.

Stadion Miejski was designed by JSK architects. The exterior of the stadium consists of a glass-fibre mesh, coated with Teflon. Steel rings connect the mesh to the body of the stadium.  The design makes it possible to change the colour of the outer walls.

The first event at the stadium was a boxing match, but the stadium officially opened on the 19th of September 2011 with a concert of George Michael. The first match played at the stadium was a Polish league match between Śląsk Wrocław and Lechia Gdańsk (1-0).

During Euro 2012, Stadion Miejski hosted three first round group matches.

Getting there

Stadion Miejski Wrocław is located on the far north-eastern edge of Wrocław, about 8 kilometres from Wrocław’s city centre and almost 9 from the city’s main railway station.

From the city centre the stadium can be reached with either tram 10 or 20.  Both trams pass just south (and west) of Wrocław’s central Rynek square (on Kazimierza Wielkiego). Take the trams in the direction of Leśnica. The journey takes about 20 minutes.

Tram 20 can also be caught a few blocks west from the main railway station at stop Arkady.

Address: Aleja Śląska, Wrocław

    I was at the stadium twice: first time for Poland-Moldova game and second time for WKS agaist Podbeskidzie. Stadium itself is very nmodern, big and nice. The atmosphere is always great when polish national side plays so there was no surprise to me that fans were great. The second game was watched by only 6000 fans and it was one of the worst games i have ever seen. If you find yourself in Wroclaw( great city!!!) make your way down to the stadium as it is worth it.
