The Supreme Audit Office will look into the financing of the reconstruction of Ondrej Nepela hockey stadium built to host the Ice Hockey World Championship this spring.

On Wednesday, July 6, the Slovak Parliament approved this move by a wide margin of 135 votes, the SITA newswire wrote. The audit will study the effectiveness of the use of public funds in the reconstruction. The transparency and non-discrimination during the procurement process will also be looked at. In May, Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš (Slovak democratic and Christian Union-SDKÚ) asked for the audit. Originally, the arena reconstruction was estimated to cost €75 million, but in the end, costs amounted to €96 million.
