State to finance Sk3 billion football stadiumin SHORT
12 Jun 2006 From press reports Business
THE STATE will foot the bill for the construction of a new Sk3 billion (€80 million) National Football Stadium in Bratislava's Tehelné pole area, which currently belongs to the Slovan football club.
Bratislava's three FCs - Slovan, Artmedia, and Inter - agreed that the new stadium with a projected capacity of 35,000 people should be at Tehelné pole, the Hospodárske noviny wrote.
The daily operation of the new stadium will be financed by the three FCs and the Slovak FA.
The requirement to build a new stadium stems from new rules that stipulate that, as of 2008, international matches can only be played on pitches of a certain standard. So far, Slovakia lacks such stadiums.More from Business
