Dinamo Zagreb board set to approve building of new stadium, daily Jutarnji list exclusively reports…

Dinamo Zagreb are set to finally invest the enormous amount of money it has generated in player transfers and UEFA prize-money in its own stadium. Dinamo Zagreb, who this week qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the 4th time in 6 years, currently are based at the Zagreb-city owned Maksimir stadium, but according to the report the club’s board will give the green light to constructing its own stadium on Monday.

The club has not been prone to investing in megalomaniac projects over the years and Jutarnji sources say the new stadium will be a 20,000-seated all covered stadium. The new stadium will be located at a new location away from the current Maksimir stadium and be a completely separate project.

The report goes on to say that the stadium will be based on ETO Park in Hungary and Allianz Stadion, home to SK Rapid Wien in Austria, although the Dinamo Zagreb stadium will be a lot cheaper and cost around 40 million euros. Construction will take around 3 years to complete.

This summer alone Dinamo Zagreb have earned around 15 million euros for just qualifying for the UEFA Champions League, and over 35 million euros in transfers thanks mainly to the sale of Marko Pjaca to Juventus for 23 million euros and Josip Brekalo to Wolfsburg for around 10 million euros. The club’s Top 10 transfers alone are in excess of 100 million euros.
