The Ferenc Puskás Stadium (Hungarian: Puskás Ferenc Stadion), or formerly People's Stadium (Népstadion) was a multi-purpose stadium in the 14th district (Zugló) of Budapest, Hungary. It was situated between the Puskás Ferenc Stadion and the Keleti pályaudvar metro stations. It was used mainly for football matches. The stadium, which was an all-seater, had a capacity of 38,652, though its original capacity exceeded 100,000. The stadium was closed in 2016 and demolished in 2017 to give place to the new Ferenc Puskás Stadium.
The stadium was built between 1948 and 1953 using a large number of volunteers, including soldiers. It opened in 1953 as Népstadion' ("People's Stadium"). Less than one year later, on 23 May 1954, the English football team suffered its worst ever defeat here (7–1).(source: wikipedia.org)
The building of the stadium is presented as a great achievement of the socialist state.
