JSK Architekci company has shown a visualization and a miniature of the National Stadium. Its elevation refers to the national colours and imitates the waving Polish flag. It is so-called conceptional project.
Zbigniew Pszczulny from JSK Architekci assured that the building fulfills all the UEFA requirements. The new stadium will be located at the existing embankment (strenghtened by stairs) of the 10th-Anniversary Stadium. The pitch will be located about nine meters higher than the existing one. Parkings for about 1700 cars will be build below the pitch and the access will be enabled by special tunnels.
The elevation made from pellucid elements will provide to the viewers the eye-contact with the stadium surrounding. Two encircling galeries will enable a proper communication. The designers has proposed very original construction of the roof which will be built over the bleachers. The pitch will be partly roofed – a kind of ‘umbrella’ folding outwards. The National Stadium will receive 55 thousands viewers. The tribunes will contain special press seats (860), 2000 so-called ‘premium’ seats for guests of honour, seats for the disabled and about 900 seats in lodges for VIPs.
Changing rooms, rooms for teams, conference rooms and storages (together 130 thousands square metres) will be located below the tribunes.

Additionally, Drzewiecki assured that even if the presented by JSK Architekci project refers to the building of the football stadium, in the future it can become a multi-functional building what many organizations find a good idea. From the technical point of view, the stadium can be built in such a way that there is a possibility of installing a folding racetrack.

He explained that the appointment was held as candidates for the stand were still interviewed. “The company should be directed by professionalists’ – he emphesized and assured that only qualifications and professional knowledge that enables directing such a investment is taken into consideration.
