The Dziesieciolecia Stadium (10th Anniversary Stadium) was bulit in 1955 for a project of an "Olympic Stadium for the city of Warsaw". It has a capacity of 71.000, but often housed more than 100 000 spectators.
Due to its poor condition the stadium was abandoned in 1983 and used for non-sports events. Nowadays, the area around the stadium is home to one of the largest flea markets in Europe.
The Dziesieciolecia Stadium is located near the Poniatowski bridge in the Praga district of Warsaw.
*** Update Spring 2010: ***
In 1998 the Stadium Dziesieciolecia was demolished to make space for the construction of the new National Stadium for the EURO 2012.
If you are in Warsaw you may be interested in attending one of the football games that is played eq. by one of Warsaw's teams that play in Polish premier league - Legia Warsaw (www.legia.pl) or Polonia Warsaw (polonia.civ.pl).
A visit to a top division footie game, Polonia at the time of visiting looked likely to be relegated but must be commended for the fight shown in a 2-1 victory over Arka Gdnyia.
A reasonably comfortable stadium, noisy and friendly fans, enjoyed our afternoon here - best wishes to KSP in the future!
Have ID with you to get a ticket.
Professional football in Warsaw boosts long and fine traditions. Legia is the citys`s largest club, but lately the other First Division Warsaw club Polonia Warszawa has fought back. They were Polish champions in 2000. The Polonia stadium at Konwiktorska Street rarely attracts big crowds, so it easy to get tickets. Tickets costs 40 zlotys. In local derbys there can be some crowd troubles but normal league matches should be safe. Don't be surprised if you see dozens and dozens of policemen around the Stadium during the match. Please, remember that they are there to make your visit pleasant.
Equipment: The building has no artificial illuminations and the roof over the stands covers only a few dozen seats. It might be good idea to take umbrella with you.
