During a press conference yesterday government commissioner László Vigh and club chairman Gabor Kubatov announced that agreement has been reached regarding the lease of Ferenc Puskas Stadion.

Hungarian legends Ferencvárosi TC will stage their next 40 home fixtures at the largest stadium in this part of Europe instead of their modest Albert Florian Stadion. The number translates to over 1.5 year of home games.

This move is connected to the Albert stadium awaiting demolition and then construction of a new 22,600-seat stadium in its place. The new venue should be ready by the end of 2014.

Meanwhile fans get ready to bid farewell to their cult stadium. This Sunday, March 24, Ferencvárosi TC will meet CFR Cluj in a friendly tie. Initially Rapid Wien were expected to come, but plans had to be changed.
