The "Warsaw Basket" awaits Great football

The new National Stadium Warsaw stands on the site of the former Tenth Anniversary Stadium and the development has revitalized the Praga district. Situated on the right bank of the Vistula, the stadium's red-and-white facade resembles a waving Polish flag and it will boast a capacity of 50,000 for the finals. National Stadium will host three Group A matches, including the tournament's opening game, one quarter-final and one semi-final. Construction work began in September 2008 and it will stage its first match - the Polish Super Cup between Legia Warsaw and Wisla Krakow - on 11 February. Poland's first game there will take place on 29 February. The stadium resembles a basket from a distance, an impression created by the external steel roof supports from which a 30 m spice is suspended over the center of the pitch. The renovated Warsaw Stadion railway station, meanwhile, will give fans easy access from the city center.
