The Poznan stadium is the only facility of the four Polish tournament stadiums that was not built from the scratch for the needs of the Tournament, but only upgraded to meet the requirements of a modern multi-purpose arena.
The reconstruction of the stadium began in 2002, but it was the decision on the organisation of Championships by Poland and Ukraine that increased the scope of work on the reconstruction of the facility. Since 2008 a modern infrastructure, food facilities, VIP lounges and zones have been built.
The current shape of the City Stadium in Poznan bears little resemblance of the facility from the 1960s. Thanks to modernisation it was the first arena in Poland that was ready for UEFA EURO 2012™. The modern stadium can accommodate over 43,000 spectators. The stadium is the home ground of local football clubs Lech and Warta Poznan.
The Stadium boasts two screens, 116 square meters each, being the largest in Poland. A speaker system with 122 concert speakers of total capacity of 53 000 W, 6 pitch speakers and 64 speakers in the VIP area, allow the stadium to be used as a venue for high quality musical performances. The first one was the stadium grand opening held in 20 September 2010. The stars of the event were Sting and the London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
The roof of the stadium is a membrane sheathing of natural silk colour. The membrane is illuminated by 195 by LED projectors. The lighting system allows illumination scenes to match the specific event held at the stadium to be created: during league matches it may be blue, when the Polish National Team plays it may be white and red, and during a concert – deferent dynamic colour combinations. Such LED systems were used to illuminate Council Hill in London, or the Hard Rock Hotel in Mississippi.
A historic bunker stands in one corner of the stadium – a part of fortifications from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Builders of the City Stadium discovered it during the groundworks carried out in the area. By a decision of the monuments’ conservation officer, this historical element building of the Poznan fortress, remained part of Stadium environment.
Three group stage matches are scheduled to be played at the Poznan stadium on 10, 14 and 18 June.
