New Serbian national stadium cancelled due to COVID-19

New Serbian national stadium cancelled due to COVID-19

Thursday 4th June 2020

The Serbian government has pulled the plug on a new national stadium due to the financial implications of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The project to build a new stadium was first devised in 2013, with the latest hurdle threatening to totally derail it.

The government had been inviting tenders from suppliers for the new €250m which would have seen a 60,000 seater stadium built in Surcin, just to the west of the capital Belgrade.

The Serbian national team currently plays at the Rajko Mitic Stadium, home to Serbian SuperLiga champions Red Star Belgrade.
