By IQ on 17 Dec 2015
The PGE Arena in Gdańsk, Poland, has secured a new naming-rights sponsor and will now be called the Stadion Energa Gdańsk.
The 44,000-capacity building was constructed between 2008-11 as one of the host stadia for the UEFA European Championships in 2012, but it has also staged concerts by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Bon Jovi and Justin Timberlake.
Financial details were not disclosed, but electricity provider Energa Group has agreed a five-year contract with the stadium administrator, Arena Gdańsk Operator, and has committed to transferring a number of sporting, educational and cultural events to the arena. Since it opened in 2011, Stadion Energa Gdańsk has been visited by more than two million people.
