Hungary’s government has unveiled plans to build a 65,000-seat national stadium inside the walls of the existing Ferenc Puskas stadium. The track will be removed to provide room for new accommodation spaces and the old walls used to create the external facade.
This project is the latest in a series of proposals to deliver a new national stadium. Construction of a new athletics track, Olympic swimming pool, and velodrome next to the national stadium are also part of the project. Construction is due to start in 2014 with the opening intended for 2017.
