Ferenc Puskas Stadion

Ferenc Puskas stadion

Former Hungarian player and manager, Ferenc Puskas, is widely considered one of the greatest European footballers of all-time. Part of Hungary's golden generation, Puskas almost averaged a goal a game for Hungary, scoring 84 goals in 85 appearances for the national side. 

The FIFA Puskas Award, established on 20 October 2009 in honour of the Hungarian wizard, is awarded to the player, male or female, judged to have scored the most aesthetically significant, or most beautiful goal of the year. 

1954 WC runner-up and multiple time European champion with Real Madrid, the Hungarian cemented his name in football history with some spellbinding performances during his career, leaving audiences dumbstruck at the skill and pace of the tiny forward. 

Born in 1927, Puskas managed a host of football teams across the globe after his playing days. In 2002, the national football stadium in Budapest, Hungary was re-named after the country's most prolific goalscorer Ferenc Puskas.

Formerly called the People's Stadium, the Ferenc Puskas Stadion is a multi-facility stadium that can be rented out for large events, mainly football.
