Sports City Council in Vienna refuses new National Stadium

For a long time now, the discussion about a new national stadium in Austria is drawing. Vienna City Councilor for Sports Peter Hacker has now clearly positioned himself: there should not be a new national stadium in Vienna.

ÖFB President Leo Windtner first talked about areas outside the capital in June - these could now be put into concrete terms.

Vienna City Councilor for Sports, Peter Hacker, commented on the issue in an interview with the courier. According to Hacker's, it makes no sense to invest over 300 or 400 million euros in taxpayer money for a stadium with a lifespan of 50 years, just to be able to stage a European Cup final. In his opinion, this money should rather be invested in popular and youth sports. Investors in the existing Ernst-Happel Stadium see Hacker's in turn positive.

The association will now take a closer look at Lower Austria and Burgenland, both federal states are willing to agree to a new building. The ÖFB would now like to advance the planning - leaving Vienna does not mean leaving the national stadium.

National Stadium for Austria now in Pandorf?

The planning for the construction of the new national stadium in Austria continues. After it became known in recent weeks that the new stadium will not be built in Vienna, another place is now in question.

Following the rejection of the stadium construction in Vienna by the sports councilor Peter Hacker, the Austrian Football Association now sees itself outside of Vienna as an appropriate location for the new national stadium.

The president of the ÖFB, Leo Windtner recently emphasized that it was "no secret", "that both Lower Austria and Burgenland have quite suitable locations."

One of these "suitable locations" could well be Parndorf in Burgenland.

Parndorf would also do justice to Windtner's requirements for a location for the new national stadium. Accordingly, not only the proximity to the city of Vienna play a role, a corresponding transport infrastructure should also be given.

Investigations at the Ernst Happel Stadium

Vienna City Councilor for Sport City, Peter Hacker, has announced investigations into the building structure of the Ernst Happel Stadium as part of its rejection of the plans of the ÖFB to build a new football stadium in Vienna.

In the discussion about the construction of the new national stadium for the ÖFB, Hacker referred to the possibilities of using the Ernst Happel Stadium. He emphasized that Austria's largest stadium is not a mere football stadium, but a "common stadium".

In the course of this, he explained that when using the Ernst Happel Stadium "about 80 percent events and the very least of them football events" are.

The announced investigations on the building structure of the stadium will be carried out, because one probably plays with the idea of ​​making some changes to the stadium. Further details to the sports council did not announce.

If the investigations at the Vienna Stadium come to the conclusion that the stadium does not have a long useful life, one would, according to hackers "rather think about it, tear it away." But this would "a decent operating and financing concept" necessary, the current date but not yet available.
