Austrian Football Bundesliga Set To Require Turf-Heating Systems In Stadiums

The Austrian Bundesliga is "set to require a turf-heating system in its stadiums," according to Alexander Huber of KURIER. Bundesliga President Hans Rinner said, "Infrastructure is our leading topic. We will decide on it at our next meeting in June." He said, "If we have to, we will pass the requirement of a turf-heating system with the necessary two-thirds majority." The only hold up "is the system's costs." In addition, Rinner "called for a new national stadium." He said, "Austria needs in addition to a renovated Rapid stadium a new national stadium with up to 60,000 seats. Then, Vienna could again host a European cup final" (KURIER, 2/6).
