Új Puskás Ferenc Stadion – construction description
New national stadium of Hungary is to be built within the bowl of existing Ferenc Puskas Stadium. With football-specific layout stands will have much smaller blueprint than the old ones, leaving much room for additional facilities, which would support the surrounding Olympic Centre and provide extra revenue possibilities.
Altogether 15 indoor sports halls within the stadium will allow hosting 21 various disciplines. Perhaps most interestingly, an 800-meter training running track will be placed above the stands (!), with a panoramic view of Budapest.
Capacity is to be kept at similar level with old stadium, at 67,889 people. Below them over 200,000 sqm of space will be available, hosting a 150-room hotel, offices and conference centre. Existing stadium's main building will be retained and serve as football museum.
Construction is expected to start in 2017 and end in 2019, costing HUF 190 billion, an estimate including underground parking throughout the stadium.
New stadium: Legend of Puskás reborn
It took years before Hungary's new national stadium became more than just renderings. But when it finally came, it instantly became a source of pride. Even if the price tag wasn't easy to swallow.
Budapest: Celebration without victory
Sell-out crowd welcomed Budapest's new football temple. And even though Uruguay won the opening game against Hungary, the inauguration of Puskás Aréná was a historic event. In just over half a year Euro 2020 is coming to this impressive venue.
Budapest: Hungarians to flood national stadium
Demand for tickets was so huge that the system crashed. All of the distribution took just 4 days and could have been even faster. In mid-November Hungary will see the first such impressive football crowd in years.
