Warsaw, Poland

The Making Of

The National Stadium in Warsaw was the venue for the opening match of the 2012 Football European Championships. However, it was built as a multifunctional venue which can host practically any event in the World. The windsurfing event is confirmation that this is possible. There is also another reason why the Stadium operator decided to go for such an event…

The idea came after a freak rain storm flooding the field just before a major game in the Football World Cup Eliminations. They could not close the roof in time causing the match being called off. A couple of guys cheered the crowed up by jumping onto the field, running and sliding in the water. The Joke was, the largest swimming pool in Europe. So that is what we want to do, is really put the largest swimming pool in Europe and relive this day with a much more exciting windsurf event.
