PGG adds name to Poland’s Stadion Śląski

Poland’s Stadion Śląski has undergone a rebrand as part of a naming-rights partnership with mining group Polska Grupa Górnicza.

The 55,000-seat stadium will become the PGG Stadion Śląski as part of the deal, the length of which was not disclosed.

The stadium said in a statement that financial terms of the agreement would be released at a later date. The partnership is designed to deliver major events to the stadium, which reopened in 2017 following eight years of renovation work.

The stadium previously staged matches of the Polish national team but while it was being renovated the team started playing at Warsaw’s National Stadium, which opened in 2012.
