The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, has announced that preparation for the construction of the future national football stadium, to be named ‘Stadion Srbija’ (Stadium Serbia), will commence in two months. The stadium will serve as the home ground for the Serbian national team, and it has been revealed that it might be located in an entirely new area. Originally planned for the Surčin municipality, the new location will now be situated in the region of New Belgrade.
The construction of the stadium is projected to cost a staggering 257 million euros, with a seating capacity of approximately 52,000. The stadium complex will include a shopping center, a football academy, and presumably a museum for the Serbian Football Association, among other accompanying facilities. With its construction, the city of Belgrade will become a legitimate candidate for hosting the UEFA Champions League final.
During the presentation of the project, Vučić stated, “Every parent should bring their child, both boys and girls, to enjoy the game of football. This will be the most developed part of the city.”
“Take a look at how the National Stadium we will build will look. Let them say not to build it, but it’s for the people, it’s for the nation. We will build the most modern open, transparent stadium, which will be covered and surrounded by greenery. It will accommodate 52,000 spectators and will be one of the most beautiful in the world, not just in Europe. Soon, we will start the construction of magnificent stadiums in Kragujevac and Niš as well,” stated the President of Serbia.
