  • Stadium name: Tychy Stadium
  • City: Tychy

One of the biggest cities of the Śląskie Voivodeship, based in its centre. Its great connection to the world is ensured by the crossing Gdańsk – Cieszyn and Kraków - Wrocław traffic routes. The city is based only an hour drive from two airports – in Pyrzowice and Balice.

Tychy is a relatively young city (it was granted the town charter in 1934). Despite this fact, it is able to surprise the visitors with its unique structures. The most popular Polish brewery from 1629, the origin of the well-known Tyskie beer, is a jewel in the city’s historical map. The city was expanded after the war – the city was designed by great architects who incorporated new technological and structural solutions.

Tychy is worth visiting as a model example of the post-war architectural development. The trail named “From social realism to post-modernism” features post-war architectural concepts that have changed over the years. 

 
Parks, green squares and forests all around - over half of the Tychy’s area features green areas that allow for relaxation and recreation. Such conditions favour active leisure - the forest trails around Tychy are perfect for walking, biking, Nordic walking or horse riding.  
The city is being filled with outside gyms that are very popular among the residents. The urban spaces offer many attractive meeting locations – the revitalised town squares are enchanting and encourage visitors to stay even for a minute.

The city is becoming one of the strongest sports centres in Silesia! The sports infrastructure is being developed for many years now. The Sports Hall, Winter Stadium, modern football stadium open in 2015 and numerous training fields constitute a robust foundation for the Tychy teams! Supporting their players and teams became a real passion for many residents. The successes of Tychy teams (ice hockey, football, basketball or futsal) are not only a reason to be proud, but are also an inspiration for youth. The youth teams are inspired by the best and bring medals from sports events. The Tychy fields are a place of training of children and youth teams cared for by the Tychy’s Football Academy.
