History and description

The Groupama Arena was built to provide Ferencvaros with a modern home in place of the old Albert Florian Stadium. The stadium was completed in 2015.

The Groupama Arena, which officially opened 10 August 2014, hosted a friendly between Ferensvaros and Chelsea. The first goal was scored by Zoltan Gera.

The stadium was the regular playing venue of Hungary's national team while the Puskas Arena was under reconstruction.

The stadium hosted the Women's Champions League final between Olympique Lyon and Barcelona on 2019. Olympique Lyon won 4-1.

How to get to the Groupama Arena

The Stadium is approximately 18 kilometres from the airport. The Groupama Arena is located in south-east Budapest, near Ulloi Avenue and 3 kilometers from the city center. The stadium lies on Ulloi Avenue, a wide street that runs from the city center in a straight line south-east. The Stadium is approximately 18 kilometers from the airport. There is a 40-minute walk from the city centre, but it is quicker to take the metro to the Groupama Arena. The metro station Nepliget lies right next to the arena. It's a quick ride of just a few stops to the stadium.

Bus 9 also goes to Nagyvarad Ter and terminates next to the stadium.

Address: Üll?i út 129, 1091 Budapest

Eat, drink, and sleep near the Groupama Arena

The Groupama Arena is located in a densely populated urban neighbourhood that includes residential buildings, office buildings, hospital buildings, and some retail. The People Park (or Nepliget park) lies right across Ulloi ut avenue. There are few local restaurants around, but the options pale in comparison to the city centre so there's little reason to head to the arena too early.

There are various hotels located close to the Groupama Arena, including a hotel by the name of Millennium, as well as Hotel Manzard Panzio and Di Verdi Imperial Hotel. Click here to see all hotels near the Groupama Arena, and here to explore other possibilities in central Budapest.

Ferencvaros Tickets

Tickets for Ferencvaros games can be bought online or at the ticket office at the Groupama Arena, both in advance and on the day of the match. You need to register for a FTC fan card first in order to be able to buy tickets, which can be done when buying tickets at the ticket office (€1,500 if done in advance or €3,000 if on the day of the match).

Ticket prices vary depending on the opponent. Ferencvaros have divided their home games into four categories with the cheapest tickets starting at HUF 2,000 for a seat behind the goal and ranging up to HUF 4,200 for a central seat at the long side. Prices go up for the most expensive price category to between HUF 2,800 and HUF 7,400, though that is just the Ujpest home match and most matches fall into either of the two cheapest categories.

Tickets cost HUF 800 more if bought on the day of the match at the stadium.

Groupama Arena stadium tours

The Groupama Arena offers guided stadium tours that include the players' tunnel, dressing rooms, dugouts, press room, VIP areas, the stands, and the Ferencvaros Fradi Museum. The tour lasts about 50 minutes and includes a museum visit. The Museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays. Tours can be requested through the online form.

Museum admission costs HUF 1,600, the museum + tour HUF 1,899.

Useful Internet links

The official website of Ferencvaros.Groupamaarena.com is the website for the Groupama Arena.The official website of Budapestinfo.hu is the website for Budapest tourism.The official website of Bkv.hu is the website for Budapest public transport information. From what I remember, Ferencvaros won 4-0. There were food stalls and merchandise sellers around the ground outside and food and beer (usual sort of beverages available) from the kiosk. I did see a few people taking in some Lithuanian dumplings to eat from home as well.

I think the cost of the souvenir ticket was around £3.50 which was excellent value for what you get. It was shown around the dressing room, referees room, pitch side, tunnel area and the museum. After registering for the souvenir ticket, I was able to receive my badge.

I then went again to watch a game a few months later. It was a Sunday evening game, dark, cold, chilly. I would perhaps recommend getting off the metro at station Navgared Ter which is one stop before Nepliget - it is literally five minutes walk down the same road but not quite as crowded getting on or off.

I would recommend that foreigners take ID with them when attending events as the stewards wanted to check my ID matched the ticket.

The top-v-bottom match between Ferencvaros and Debrecen was a close and highly contested affair with only a handful of spectators in attendance. Ferencvaros emerged victorious by a score of four goals to zero. Outside the stadium, food stalls and merchandise sellers were prevalent, as well as a kiosk selling traditional Hungarian fare like lunches.
