Zagłębie played its first official match in the new stadium on 14 March 2009 against Górnik Łęczna. Only three stands were opened. The main stand was finished in 2010.
The new stadium was built in the same place where the old stadium was located. Its construction began on September 18, 2007. Stands of the old stadium opened in 1985 were created on artificial hills. The large part (about 65%) of them, was demolished in the early stage of construction. The playing ground has been moved nearly 20 meters compared to the old stadium. Dialog Arena is not the modernization of the old facility – it has been completely built from scratch.

The stadium is lit by 150 floodlights, whose total illuminance is 2000 lux, enabling broadcasting of matches in High Definition.
On the main stand, the press center was established, which includes a conference room, a press center, two TV studios, 10 tables for the press, 10 desktops with 3 seats for television and radio commentator, and platforms for the cameras. Also, on the main stand is located 600 VIP category seats and 100 SuperVIP seats. Moreover, there are 32 places for disabled persons.
