State to finance Sk3 billion football stadium

THE STATE will finance the Sk3 billion (€80 million) construction of a new 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 would be at Tehelné pole, the Hospodárske noviny daily wrote.

The 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 must be played on pitches of certain standards. So far, Slovakia lacks such stadiums.
