Puskás Ferenc Stadion

Puskás Ferenc Stadion a levegőből./Puskás Ferenc Stadion, earlier known as Népstadion, was built to provide Hungary with a larger national stadium to replace the Üllői úti Stadion.Plans initially involved a 70,000-stadium, but this was later expanded to 100,000 places. Construction got approved in 1948, and works finished five years later.Népstadion officially opened on the 20th of August 1953 with a large event and a match between Honvéd and Spartak Moscow (3-2).Two years later, the stadium recorded its largest attendance when 104,000 people attended an international between Hungary and Austria.Few changes were made to the stadium until it got converted into an all-seater in the 1990s. Capacity got further reduced due to safety measures.The stadium got renamed in 2002 in honour of legendary Hungarian football player Ferenc Púskas.In recent years, plans have been made to either redevelop or rebuild the stadium, but while initial schedules aimed for a start of the works in 2012 or 2013, this currently does not seem to happen before 2014.Puskás Ferenc Stadion is located just east of central Budapest at only a kilometre from Budepest Keleti central railway station (or 10 minutes walking). The city’s historic centre is about two kilometres further west.The stadium is easily reached with metro line 2, which runs from the historic centre in eastern direction. Take the metro at, for example, Kossuth Lajos, Deák Ferenc, Astoria, or Keleti in the direction of Örs Vezér. Get off at stop Puskás Ferenc Stadion.www.stadiumguide.com/Budapest, Hungary
