GROUPAMA ARENA

Budapest, Hungary

TRUE TO CLUB COLOURS

Shining like an emerald against the night sky, Budapest’s newest football stadium has a strong Go Green theme, which matches the club colours of its home team, Ferencvárosi Torna Club.

Description

Groupama Arena is home to Ferencvárosi TC, one of Hungary’s oldest and most popular football teams. Guarding the entrance is a bronze eagle clutching a soccer ball, symbolising the passion for the sport shared by the fans who cheer on their home squad. Now they have double reason to be proud: their stadium is the greenest in Hungary, with the club’s signature colours displayed in every detail right down to the lift operating panels.
