ALPINE lands contract to build sports stadium in Ukraine

ALPINE, FCC's Austrian subsidiary, has been selected as preferred bidder to build a new sports stadium in the city of Lemberg, Ukraine, which is to host the UEFA EURO 2012T soccer championship.

The complex, on a 25-hectare site near the Lemberg hippodrome, will seat 33,000 and fulfil UEFA standards. The project includes the construction of other facilities such as a multi-function sports stadium, a car park and a hotel.

The stadium was designed by architect Albert Wimmer, who also designed the new stadiums in the Austrian cities of Innsbruck and Klagenfurt, as well as the expansion of Salzburg's stadium.

The construction of this stadium strengthens FCC's international profile and puts it in the vanguard in the construction of large sports facilities worldwide.
