In the first phase, which is expected to be completed in March 2023, temporary stands for 25,000 people will be built in addition to the permanent 15,000 seats, while the second phase of construction is expected to last until August 2024.
The building can hold 15,000 people, suitable for the national team and other groups of athletes to train as well as for organized competitions; this will be built by removing the temporary structures and rented equipment.
A professional gym will be set up inside the building for competitive athletes, with an upper ring open to the public, a covered and illuminated running track, roller-skating rink, street workout equipment, training area and a food-service area offering a unique panorama of the Danube for sports enthusiasts. This sports ring will serve as an urban public space on the banks of the Danube.
Additional areas of the stadium will also be open to the public outside of sporting events, including a fitness and conference room, the Investment Agency (BMSK) announced.
The Danube promenade, the green park around the stadium, and cycling and walking routes will all serve the recreational needs of the general public as well.
