Arena Nationala (WSPE-787)


Product Description


Bucarest, Romania


National Arena (Romanian: Arena Nationala) is a football stadium in Bucharest, Romania, in the Lia Manoliu Sports Complex. The stadium will host the games of Romania's national football team, as well as the Romanian Cup Final and the Romanian Supercup. The 2012 UEFA Europa League Final will be held at the new stadium. This will be the first final of a European football club competition hosted by Romania.

The stadium is built on the site of the former National Stadium, which was completed in 1953. It is a UEFA Category 4 stadium.

The official inauguration was initially scheduled for August 10, 2011, and was to feature a football match between Romania and Argentina. However on 26 July, Argentina officially cancelled the friendly match after their coach was fired, so the stadium was inaugurated on September 6, 2011, with a UEFA Euro 2012 Group D qualifier match between Romania and France. During this game, the grass on the playing field got completely damaged in less than 10 minutes of play time, a great embarrassment considering the overall costs of the stadium. The game ended 0–0 in front of a crowd of 49,137.

Unused 4" x 6" continental size chrome.
