Szonmbathely new stadium

The Hungarian city of Szombathely will soon get a brand new stadium with an indoor arena. The work on the project is moving at a swift pace according to the information circulated by local company Vasidrón légifotó-videó.

This time last year there was only a partial outline of the stadium in foundation stage while now the building is nearly finished. It was even hoped that it could be ready by July but the stadium is most likely to open later into the 2017/18 season, in early autumn.

At present the roof awaits the last pieces of white membrane and the floodlight and sound systems, all expected to top the building at some 20 meters above the field. While we mention it, the field is also being prepared every day, while the precast stands are ready to be equipped with seating.

As for the number of seats, it’s expected to be around 8,600, roughly 1,000 less than initially planned in 2014. Still, that’s enough to hold international games with UEFA Category 4 and expect some games to be sold out domestically.

Attached to the stadium from the west will be a new indoor hall with 458 seats and a large platform with two levels of parking. All of the above is expected to cost HUF 15 billion (€49 million), which is significantly more than the early estimate of HUF 9.6 billion).
