The Silesian Stadium in Chorzów was officially opened in 1956. Between 2009 and 2017 it underwent a major renovation. Currently, this is the second-largest arena in Poland with around 55,000 seats and the largest stadium capable of hosting major athletics events.
In few weeks time the stadium will host the 65th edition of the Kamila Skolimowska Memorial Meeting, one of the oldest one day meetings in Europe.
