A Swiss company, Hidber Consultants, which has built stadiums in Bern and Basel where European championships were held, sent an offer to build the national football stadium in Bratislava to Slovak Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš and Mayor Andrej Ďurkovský in July, the Sme daily wrote on September 21.

This means that another company in addition to Slovak Ivan Kmotrík, the majority shareholder of the Slovan Bratislava football club, is interested in building Slovakia's national stadium at Tehelné Pole in Bratislava.

The government has openly declared that it would not fund the construction. Ivan Šesták, head of the board of directors of construction firm Doprastav, said he did not understand why the government has not replied to the offer made by the Swiss firm.

Sme also wrote that it seems that Mikloš has not submitted the offer to the Education Minister who is currently also in charge of sport.
