On Tuesday, the Minister of Defense of the Slovak Republic, Jaroslav Naď, handed it over to athletes.

“I am extremely glad that after all the hard work and success achieved by the representatives of the military sports center for the resort and the whole of Slovakia, we can in turn provide them with better conditions for training in the form of a modern athletic and football stadium,” said Minister of Defense Jaroslav Naď.

“I believe that sports fans will be happy to come to the stadium and leave with an unforgettable sports experience,” added Naď.

Compared to the original plan, the reconstructed stadium has a larger number of sports grounds and also a newly built training stadium, which they opened in April this year.

The new football pitch with heated turf meets the criteria of UEFA category 3. The grandstand also underwent reconstruction, while its modification also required an increase in funding.

The reason was the increase in capacity from the originally planned 4,000 to a total of more than 7,000 seats and 30 seats for immobile people, as well as the associated completion of social facilities for the benefit of spectator comfort.
