Albert Flórián Stadion – design 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.
Hungary: Billions for new stadiums in 2015
They opened three new stadiums in 2014. This year works are to commence or progress at 22 (!) major projects. The government plans to spend 67.144 billion forints.
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.
Budapest: Record pace of new stadium construction
In spring 2013 the old stadium was still standing in Budapest. In spring 2014 the new one for 22,600 people will be nearing completion. This year should see the entire concrete and steel structure standing.
Hungary: Society against public stadium investment
Republikon Institute carried out a survey showing massive opposition to government’s plans of pumping money into football stadiums. Only 16% agree that football should be the priority sport at all.
Budapest: Old Ferencváros stadium almost demolished
Demolition work is almost done at Albert Flórián Stadion, authorities shown the progress to journalists today. And the new venue will be built partly using the old concrete – a way towards sustainability and supporters' sentiments.
Budapest: Ferencváros played their last game at Flórian Albert
Club legends, film depicting club history, there were fireworks. Perhaps the only thing that yesterday’s ceremonial farewell lacked were goals. Anyhow, time to move on. And move, literally, 4 km up north.
Budapest: Ferencváros moves to national stadium upon construction at their site
Ferencvárosi TC will play an estimated number of 40 upcoming games at the Ferenc Puskas Stadium instead of their Albert Florian Stadion. The outdated facility will be closed for demolition and new one is expected in late 2014.
Budapest: Works on Ferencváros new stadium to start in March
General contractor still needs to be selected, but if all goes as planned, groundbreaking works on new Flórián Albert stadium should start in mid-March. It's expected to be among the cheapest and still most modern in its class.
