The Stadion Gdańsk (officially called the Polsat Plus Arena Gdańsk for sponsorship reasons) was built ahead of Poland jointly hosting UEFA Euro 2012, going on to host all three of Spain’s group matches, as well as a Quarter-final in which Germany beat Greece.
Since it opened, the stadium has been the home of local side, Lechia Gdańsk and continues to host international football as Poland regular play matches at the Stadion Energa Gdańsk.
