Description: Hidegkuti Nándor Stadion
The plan for MTK sees the stadium enclosed in outer coat of membrane. Only the east side stands out as three recesses in MTK’s club colour blue will be created to provide a more interesting façade.
The stands with a single tier will be located on three sides of the field with some room for future expansion left in the south. Initial capacity of 5,000-5,500 complies with MTK’s expectations and ticket demand. Despite the club’s rich history, it’s hardly the most popular side in Budapest currently.
The entire stadium will sit atop a large pedestal, which will comprise club offices, commercial outlets and local sports museum, among other facilities.
The project saw early clearance works in January 2015, actual construction should start in spring 2015 and is expected for delivery by June 30, 2016. It’s budget was initially estimated at HUF 6.5 billion (€21m / $26m), but later more modest figures were suggested.
