Austrian Bundesliga Side Austria Vienna To Invest $3.4M In Generali Arena

Austrian Bundesliga side Austria Vienna will invest €2.5M ($3.4M) "to upgrade its Generali Arena," according to Alexander Huber of KURIER. Starting in April, the club "will install handicap-accessible buffets and toilets, including elevator, access road, order and seating possibilities." In addition, the club's board "has already agreed to an even higher budget for the construction of new west and north stands." Austria CFO Markus Kraetschmer will use several million euros from the Champions League to invest in its infrastructure. He said, "The major constructions have to be completed with the opening of the new subway station in close proximity to the stadium in September 2017" (KURIER, 2/6).
