The stadium is to be used as a multifunctional entertainment complex for different sports and gathering purposes, but it is mainly programmed as a soccer field that fits the FIFA and UEFA criteria. Align with the elliptical outer form; the circulation line creates dynamic and peaceful areas. The structural elements mutually support each other and converge into a grid-like formation, in which façades, stairs and roof are integrated. The steel structure, transparent glass and the partially used galvanized sandwich panels on the facade create a strong and clear expression.
The design introduces innovative solutions adopting high technology principles for operational management and dealing especially with harsh climatic conditions of the geography. The closed arena is heated and air-conditioned. The operable roof is an integral part of the structure. The main bearing construction being steel, the sliding roof shifts on the east-west direction.
