As Poland prepares to host these esteemed events, it’s clear that the country’s position in European football is only getting stronger.
PGE National Stadium: A Venue with a History

In addition to hosting the Super Cup, Poland will also play host to the European Under-19 Women’s Championship and the Europa Conference League final in 2025, with the latter being held in Wroclaw. These upcoming events highlight Poland’s increasing stature in European football. The decision to host the UEFA Super Cup match in Warsaw is a testament to the growing prominence of Polish football and the high quality of its sporting infrastructure.
Implications for Polish Football
The UEFA Super Cup is expected to be a thrilling contest and a significant event for Polish sports enthusiasts. In addition to bringing international attention to Polish football, it also boosts the local economy and provides a unique opportunity for Polish fans to witness world-class football on home soil. It remains to be seen whether another Spanish team will claim victory in 2024. Regardless, these events are significant for Poland as it continues to be recognized as a suitable host for major footballing events.
