Supporters wishing to catch a game will get to see the wonderful Gdansk Energa Stadium 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.'
The best tickets in the main stands are priced at 25/13zł in sectors 3 and 45 or 60/30zł 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 40/20zł. You can buy tickets in advance or on matchdays at the stadium ticket office. You'll need to bring a form of identification so they can register you and sell you a ticket.
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, Wisła and Lech, although crowds have been on the increase with the bigger games coming close to sell outs.
