The Phoenix Hall needs to be renewed to provide such an infrastructure for athletes which meets the requirements of the 21st century.

  • Bardóczy said. He emphasized that the building should be examined statistically, and the electricity and mechanical engineering should also be examined in the Debrecen facility. But they also need to pay attention that European Union directives will be introduced from 2021, such as 25 percent of the used energy should be composed of recycled energy. The renovation is already taking place in light of this.
