It is clear from this project that we will get a top class sports complex, which will satisfy the needs of the federation, and which will add value to athletes and the people of Zagreb who will be able to use a range of different facilities there,” said Damir Vrbanović from the Croatian Football Federation, adding that both FIFA and UEFA will help fund the complex.
