Hidegkuti Nándor Stadion was a stadium in Budapest, Hungary.[1][2] The stadium was opened on 1947 and it served as the home for the MTK Budapest FC until 2014. In 2015 the stadium was demolished, and a completely new arena was built between 2015-16, named Hidegkuti Nándor Stadium.



During the World War II the original MTK stadium was damaged, therefore a new stadium had to be built. Between 1945 and 1947 MTK played their home matches at their rivals' stadiums, namely Ferencváros and Újpest. In 1953 a concrete edge was built around the running tracks.


On 6 November 2014, the demolishion of the stadium started. First the floodlights system was uninstalled and then the seats were removed.[3][4]

In May 2015 the demolition of the main stand started.[5]
