Everything You Need to Know About Stadion Energa Gdansk

Everything You Need to Know About Stadion Energa Gdansk

This year's Europa League final is set to take place at the Stadion Energa Gdansk, otherwise known as Stadion Miejski. The ground is home to Lechia Gdansk, who play in Poland's top flight, the Ekstraklasa. Because the league and clubs within it are fairly unknown to the majority of football fans in countries like England, many people may not be aware of this impressive stadium. However, there is a strong chance that some supporters of English clubs may know about it soon if their teams manage to reach the final of Europe's secondary competition.

Which Clubs Could Compete in the Europa League Final?

A large section of English supporters may be Googling the Stadion Energa in the weeks ahead as they lick their lips at the prospect of their teams making it to the Europa League final. That's because Manchester United and Arsenal are the two favourites to make it all the way and lift the trophy. There is also a strong chance that it could be a showdown between the two Premier League sides at the end of May.

According to the odds on the UEFA Europa League at the time of writing, the Red Devils can be backed at evens to win the trophy, and the Gunners are at 9/2. Despite the Old Trafford club being firm favourites, some may feel that the North London outfit are dark horses for the win. That's because this represents their only shot at securing Champions League football next season, so they may have the hunger and desire to go all the way. As it stands, it appears as though United will be able to achieve that same goal through their league position.

About The Stadium

If the bookies are correct in their predictions, the Polish stadium is about to have the eyes of a vast number of English football fans on it. Some people may remember having seen it in Euro 2012, as it hosted four games during the international tournament. Three of the games were from Group C, along with one of the quarter-final matches. Indeed, the stadium was built specifically for that tournament, which explains its grandiose, modern design.

The Stadion Energa is the third-largest stadium in the country, with a capacity of just over 41,000. It is recognisable for its unique oval design with a gold exterior. In shape and design, it looks similar to the Allianz Arena of Bayern Munich, and it was also built by German contractors. The stadium is located in the northern part of Gdansk, and it is easily accessible by public transport. There is a train line that goes directly to the ground, with a free express service for travelling fans on match days.

The Stadion Energa is one of the most visually pleasing stadiums in world football, but it rarely gets the attention of international spectators. This is set to change in May, though, as it prepares to welcome two of Europe's biggest clubs for the Europa League final. Many people are expecting to see at least one English club in that game.
