A government decision has been made on the construction of the velodrome (indoor cycling track) in Debrecen, which will be suitable for training and smaller international competitions.
In January 2018, the government decided to provide HUF 100 million to the Hungarian Cycling Association (MKSZ) for the preparation of a “small” velodrome in eastern Hungary and western Hungary.
The task of MKSZ was to determine suitable locations for the future two regional cycling centers, to find suitable properties, to prepare a feasibility study and an impact study. In the summer of 2018, it was decided that the planned location of the velodrome in Eastern Hungary will be Debrecen.
With the support of Máriusz Révész, Government Commissioner responsible for active Hungary, and in close cooperation with the local government of Debrecen, the association prepared the request studies and the government decided to build the velodrome in Debrecen-Pallag, next to the Debrecen Football Academy.
The Government declared it as a priority government investment and will provide in total the funds of HUF 453 million for the development. The operator of the velodrome will be the local government company, Debrecen Sportcentrum Közhasznú Nonprofit Kft.
