European Handball Championship in Katowice January 2016
16th January 2016 Katowice the capital of Upper Silesia- my region - hosts European Handball Championship. Championship started on 15th January. Most matches are played in Katowice but some of them in Cracow which is situated 65k km from Katowice.
Matches are played in Katowice Saucer.
Spdek(meaning "saucer" inPolish) is a multipurposearenacomplex inKatowice,Poland, opened in 1971 at ul. Korfantego 35 under the nameVoivodeship Sport and Show Arena in Katowice.
Aside from the main dome, the complex includes a gym, an ice rink, a hotel and three large car parks. It was the largest indoor venue of its kind in Poland until it was surpassed byKraków Arenain 2014. It hosts many important cultural and business events. Musicconcertsare especially common non-sport events. Spodek can hold 11,500 people, although this number is in practice limited to 10,000 or even 8,000 due to stage set-ups obscuring the view. Its Polish name refers to a flying saucer (its shape resembles a UFO). Spodek is a major contribution to the cultural significance of Katowice in Poland, especially for the younger generations. It has also been used as an unofficial logo for the city on posters promoting redevelopment in Katowice. Spodek is home to HC GKS Katowice ice hockey club in the winter months.
Personally I am not interested in handball but my husband is. The Polish team plays well.
