Construction of a new impressive football stadium is in progress in the eastern Croatian city of Osijek, informed Croatiaweek. The stadium will have a capacity of 13,000 seats which will be able to be extended to 15,000 and will be the first all-covered stadium in the country.
Once completed, the new sports facility and camp will be the most luxury stadium in Croatia. Boxes in the West Stand will offer beds, saunas and jacuzzis. The adjoining camp will have a hotel, seven heated pitches and entertainment facilities for players. The facility is being built in line with the European and world trends.
An investment of 40 million euros
The construction of the stadium and of the camp will cost around 40 million euros. The Croatian Football Federation has co-financed the project with 1 million euros and has announced that the national team will play at the stadium.
Visiting the construction site, the President of the Croatian Football Federation Davor Suker commented: “I am glad to be back in my hometown and glad that NK Osijek and all the people working on this presented such a beautiful project to the Croatian Football Federation. We were all thrilled with it and the executive board decided to support it with one million euros. The most important thing is that something is being built and I congratulate everyone involved in this project”.
The construction work is going as it was planned in the timetable of the project. The stadium has already emerged out of the ground and every day the contours of the huge building are becoming more and more visible. Construction will continue throughout the winter season if the weather conditions allow it. Both, the stadium and the camp are expected to be completed in 2020.
