Nagyerdei Stadion – construction description
On January 29 2013 dismantling of the old Nagyerdei (translated as Grand Forest Stadium) commenced. The stadium is located just 500 meters north of another venue, used by Debreceni VSC. And it’s exactly DVSC, who are expected to move in once works end in spring 2014.
Contractors have just 15 months to build stands for 20,020 people (of whom 150 will be journalists, 50 – commentators and there are also 26 skyboxes planned).
