Silesian Stadium (Polish: Stadion Śląski) is a sport stadium located between Chorzow and Katowice in Poland.
In 1993, the stadium was designated as the official home stadium of the Polish national football team. In the 1990s, the stadium was converted to an all-seater stadium, reducing the capacity to 47,246. Currently, there are plans to expand its capacity to 55.211 and to construct a roof over the stadium (claimed to become the largest in the world, 43,000 m2).
