Bielsko Biala Stadium

Bielsko-Biala Stadium is located in the very heart of the city of Bielsko-Biala. It is a modern football facility established on the site of an old and celebrated arena which dated back to 1927. After a refurbishment completed in 2016, the stadium became a bi-level facility which now accommodates 15,316 spectators. Particularly noteworthy are colourful seats symbolizing the four seasons of the year. It is home to TS Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biała – nicknamed "the Highlanders" – a team currently competing in the Polish first division.

After a long hiatus, in March 2018 international football returned to Bielsko-Biała with a U-20 meeting between Poland and England at Bielsko-Biala Stadium. The most recent international action before that took place in 1978, when Bielsko-Biala hosted two matches of the UEFA Junior Tournament. The game between Poland and England was recognized as a great event in the whole region. It attracted nearly 14,000 fans, setting an attendance record for the stadium.
