  • BALÁZS FÜRJES
  • Government Commissioner responsible for the planification and construction of the Arena.
  • "The new Puskás Arena is a 100% Hungarian project; it was designed and built by Hungarians. The three-year-long construction ensured a job for fifteen thousand Hungarian people, aiding the livelihood of these fifteen thousand families. We can all be proud of it."

FACILITY DETAILS:

  •  10,000 tonnes worth of steel framework - the equivalent of 2 whole Elisabeth Bridges 
  • 150,000 m3 of ferro-concrete - would be enough to build 75 residential estates
  •  More than 57,000 m2 of steel in the roofing, which was built by a 1,250 tonne tracked crane
    • The crane was put together after being delivered by 60 trucks to the site, its assembly took three weeks alone
    • The weight and movements of the crane had to be supported by the organisational rout in the surroundings of the site
    • This crane lifted to its place the supporting frame, consisting of 38 units 
    • The outer and naturally heaviest unit's weight was nearly 150 tonnes
  • The construction of the ferro-concrete roofing was so complex, because of how it supports itself on the pylons, that a 3D model of the labyrinthine system of the roofing had to be created for the workers
  • 26 km-s worth of driven pegs, which is long enough to reach the city of Százhalombatta from Puskás Arena
  • 1,700 m-s worth of cable length, if this was to be distended from Puskás Arena, would reach further than London or Barcelona
  • 16 tower-cranes
  • 36,000 lighting fixtures
  •  Nearly an accumulated 1 km length of bars
  • For the full Wi-Fi coverage, 1,500 access points needed to be created, one of the largest systems of kind in Hungary

67 thousand at a football match and 78 thousand capacity at a concert
