Lechia Gdańsk

Supporters wishing to catch a game will get to see the wonderful Gdansk PGE Arena found about 5km north of the old town close to the beaches at Brzeźno and home to local side Lechia Gdańsk.

'Wow' was the reaction of UEFA head Michel Platini when he viewed the construction of the 620 million zloty stadium which forms the centrepiece of the redevelopment of the Letnica district of the city. 'I must praise the city president and all involved for an amazing project, not only of the stadium but also of the revitalisation of the neighbourhood,' said Platini, 'the tournament lasts only three weeks, but the infrastructure will serve for 40-50 years.'

Designed to look like a glowing piece of amber the 44,000 seater stadium hosted four games during Euro2012 and incorporates Lechia's colours of green and white in the seating.

The best tickets in the main stands are priced at 40zł in sectors 3 and 45 or 60zł in sectors 1 and 2. In Your Pocket recommends heading for sectors 15 or 16 where you will have view, atmosphere and safety with prices also at a palatable 46zł. In order to buy a ticket you will need to buy a Supporter’s Card (Karta Kibica) for 12zł and these should be purchased in advance at one of the Fan Shops (Galeria Bałtycka has one) where you’ll need to show your passport or driving licence.

To get to the stadium from the centre of Gdansk you can either jump in a taxi which will set you back 20-25zł. By public transport from the main station take the #7 tram or jump on the special local SKM train which runs to the Stadion Expo stop next to the ground. Note that this only runs on matchdays. The regular SKM services to Sopot and Gdynia do not travel to this station and instead you will need to get off at Gdańsk Politechnika and then take a 15 minute walk from there.

Lechia have invested in their team quite heavily, by Polish standards, in recent years but have yet to trouble the established Polish sides - Legia, Wisla and Lech, although crowds have been on the increase with the bigger games coming close to sell outs.
