Ferencvárosi TC opens accessible parking area
As a result of the cooperation of Ferencvárosi Torna Club and sponsor Provident, a new accessible parking area has been opened at the Groupama Arena.
Viktor Paján, facility manager of Népliget Sports Center told us that the club and Provident launch a project every year where they aim to create value for the community. This year, they created a parking area for disabled people at the Groupama Arena. The opening of the parking area took place before the FTC-Újpest derby.
“This is a noble purpose”, says Botond Szirmák, CEO at Provident. “We have 3000 people working at Provident and almost 200 of us have some form of disability. For them, these projects are especially important. When they would like to visit the stadium, they need accessible parking and comfortable routes to the gates and sectors. That is why we want to invest in these kind of CSR projects.”
Zoltán Nyíri, COO of FTC said:”On behalf of Ferencváros, I am grateful for this parking area. With this parking lot we will make many Ferencváros supporters’ life easier. It does not matter from now on if they have reduced mobility or sit in a wheelchair. I am grateful in their names as well. This parking lot is built with Western European standards, I hope that all our disabled athletes and supporters will be able to use it at their ease”.
András Igaz, Managing Director of the stadium operator LSH Kft, expressed his happiness that the supporters could explore this new area during a full-house game. Sándor Sas, disabled powerlifter of Ferencváros participated in the opening event as well.
“I see many disabled parking lots which were built without paying attention to the details. Looking around here, we can see that everything was taken well care of and the stadium became really accessible. I see this as a very positive action”, expressed Sándor Sas his happiness.
