The Amex beat off stiff competition from other new stadiums, including Juventus’ home and the National Stadium in Poland which will host the opening game of the fast-approaching European Championships.

Work has already begun on adding new seats to the stadium which will take its capacity to approaching 30,000 for the start of next season.
