None of the stadiums built for Euro 2012 cannot boast about such a diversified and rich repertoire for the stadium opening. Despite its short history, the Wroclaw stadium has already been found in the center of attention around the world.
Construction of the modern stadium in the capital of Lower Silesia was finished in September 2010. Initially, the contractor of the multi-functional stadium was the Mostostal company, but later on the company Wrocław 2012 gave it to the Boegl Max company. This decision was due to the growing threat of failure to meet the deadline of finishing the stadium. The German consortium has experience in implementing such projects. Our portfolio includes construction of Bay-Arena.
