New Stadium[edit]

There were some ideas to build new stadium. They were right. The construction hasn't started yet in 2010, than expected. The New Tatran Stadium should have lower capacity (12 000), and should be one of the most modern football stadiums in the central Europe with newest technologies. Stadium has cost about 23,236,000 €.
