Albert Flórián Stadion – construction description
Plans to build a new ground for Ferencavros have been presented since 2008 (new concept in 2010), but to date didn’t come to fruition. Third attempt bases on the same idea of rotating the stadium by 90 degrees and creating 22,600 seats under cover, some inside 29 modern skyboxes. However no commercial infrastructure next to the stadium is part of the plan at this point (it used to be in 2008 and 2010).
Construction is to last 16 months at the longest and will be financed by municipal authorities.

New stadium: Groupama Aréna
Less than 1.5 year after demolition of the historical predecessor, new arena in Budapest is ready for opening. Ferencvaros welcomes Chelsea tonight and we welcome you to take a tour of the Groupama Aréna.
Budapest: Ferencvaros new stadium named Groupama Arena
For at least 7 years, perhaps even 10, the new stadium in Budapest will be called Groupama Arena. Many are happy with the contract, but others argue that this has and will be Albert Flórian Stadion.
Budapest: Construction ends as planned for Ferencváros
Though final touches are being added outside the stadium, it’s ready as planned. 14 months was a very tight time frame, but Hungary’s largest sports project has kept it.
Budapest: New Ferencváros stadium ready next month
In May last year they were finishing demolition works at the old stadium. May this year will see formal delivery of the new 22,600-seater! Another major Hungarian football project ending within deadlines and budget.
Hungary: A stadium revolution in the making?
Along with the football federation of Hungary, Wiktor Obran’s government approved a resolution that envisaged 27 stadiums of two top leagues being thoroughly renovated by 2016! After Budapest and Debrecen already two new stadium projects are planned for launch.
