New Olympic Stadium All But Complete

Wroclaw's new Olympic Stadium is now all but complete bar some minor finishing touches.

The 11,000 capacity stadium is to play a key role in Wroclaw's hosting of the 2017 World Games, but will also used for sports such as speedway, American football and rugby.

The design is the work of Poznan based architect Wojciecha Ryżyńskiego, whose previous projects include Lech Poznan's football stadium.

The stadium's main grandstand has been completely rebuilt, with all the seats now covered by a new roof. The brick exterior of the original building has nonetheless been retained, while the same is true of the old clock tower opposite the main grandstand.

The stadium will open in April, when Sparta Wroclaw (speedway) and Panthers Wroclaw (American football) start to compete in their respective competitions for the 2017 season.
