Ferenc Puskás Stadium is the most famous football stadium in Hungary and the sight of numerous important Hungarian football matches and many other important sporting events and music concerts in Budapest.

The stadium seats 69,120 people. Perhaps the most famous sporting victory occurring at the stadium happened in 1954 when England lost 7-1 to the Magical Magyars. The English team’s heaviest ever defeat.

Take a look at the highlights from that match below…

One of the most famous music concerts took place on the 27th July 1986 when Queen, one of the greatest rock bands ever, gave a seminal performance during their Magic Tour. Many Hungarian still vividly remember the performance as one of the first by a big western act behind the Iron Curtain.

Take a look at the video of Queen performing in Budapest at the Ferenc Puskás Stadium below:

Michael Jackson also performed at Ferenc Puskás Stadium during his Dangerous Tour.

If you are a Michael Jackson fan you will be interested to know there is a Michael Jackson memorial tree near the Kempinski Hotel in Erzsébet Square (Erzsébet Tér).

The stadium has been due to be demolished and replaced with a new, state of the art stadium, for some time so if you would like to see it take the opportunity soon.
