While many people are getting excited about the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup in South Africa, at the same time Poland is preparing its stadiums for the upcoming UEFA European Cup in 2012, which will be co-hosted by Poland and the Ukraine. In the course of reconstructing the stadium of the Polish premier league soccer club “Legia Warschau”, which is one of the venues for the European Cup, Reinhard Tweer GmbH from the German city of Bielefeld made an important contribution.
The roof construction of a modern stadium is particularly challenging, as it has to be durable without using pillars in the stadium’s interior. Pillars that spoil the view from the stands are no longer acceptable. Therefore, the roofing weight must be carried by the construction itself and consequently requires specific know-how when it is planned and realized.
