Colorcoat continues to shine bright at Poland’s ‘Lantern Stadium’
There’s no doubt Euro 2012 co-host Poland kicked off the tournament in style with its purpose-built Municipal Stadium (Miejski stadium) in Wrocław, a new generation of sports venue which has since continued to score ongoing praise for its innovative design involving Tata Steel’s Colorcoat products.
Architects JSK Architekten signed up Tata Steel to its winning team to lighten up its chosen ‘Lantern Stadium’ scheme, being built specifically for the competition.

Needing to convey lightness and transparency within the distinctive two-tier design, JSK specified Tata Steel’s Colorcoat Prisma pre-finished steel cladding in Silver Metallic for the underside of the roof and its surrounding esplanade, giving the finished complex a long-lasting yet light-weight luxury roofing solution.
Colorcoat Prisma is Tata Steel’s couture range for buildings, offering superior colour and gloss retention and unrivalled corrosive resistance, backed by a unique Confidex® guarantee.
Its use for the Municipal Stadium resulted in a match-winning performance during the iconic football tournament, with Colorcoat products also specified for three other Euro 2012 grounds in Gdansk and Poznan in Poland and Lviv in the Ukraine.
The innovative stadium complex in Wrocław seats 43,000 and is enclosed by executive boxes, a VIP lounge, conference, team and media facilities and offices, with a external finish that can change colour thanks to a unique lighting system enveloping the site.
