I find it kind a weird that Poland's premier and national stadium is only a reserve stadium for Euro 2008. This place is really the only stadium that comes to mind when thinking of Polish football.

...or Euro 2012 ;)...And you probably don't know, that they already spent like 100mln € on this 'arena' and it's still looks like shit...They could biuld new stadium for 100mln € instead. But: "NOOOO, WE WANT MODERNIZE!!!!" :bash: :bash:

For Silesian Stadium's modernisation Polish goverment spent 182 mln PLN, not Euro. And for long time there was the only one stadium in Poland with more than 20 000 seats. So in Silesian Stadium were matches and it can't be rebuild, it must be modernised only.

GW from Friday:

"Rząd nie da ani grosza na Stadion Śląski
[...] Minister sportu, Mirosław Drzewiecki powiedział marszałkowi województwa śląskiego, że Stadion Śląski nie dostanie nawet złotówki dofinansowania. W ciągu 15 modernizacji lat na stadion z budżetu centralnego wydano 182 mln złotych - mówi minister. Stadion nie dostanie więc już ani złotówki więcej. [...] Marszałek zapewnia, że województwo ma wystarczające fundusze (250 mln zł) na zbudowanie dachu, przyznaje jednak, że dofinansowanie by się przydało i będzie o nie zabiegał."

Translation:

"Polish Goverment saids: no more money for Silesian Stadium
Ministry of sport, Mirosław Drzewiecki yesterday said - no more money for Silesian Stadium. During last 15 years we pay 182 mln PLN to renovated the stadium, so Polish Goverment doesn't pay any more. Marshal of Silesian Voivodship assures - we have got money (250 mln PLN) for the roof. By the way, some money is always good and he wants to get it."
