First built in 2011 for the European Championships in 2012 the stadium is now home to the Polish national team and has hosted a variety of sporting events since.

The national stadium in Warsaw is built on the site of the previous national stadium, 'Stadion Dziesieciolecia'.

The stadium has a capacity of 58,145 seats for spectators during football matches (although this can be extended depending on the event). On the outside of the stadium the materials used to create the facade are in the national colours of Poland. The stadium has a unique retractable roof that is a flexible membrane rather than a solid structure.
