The Pancho Arena takes its name from the nickname of the football legend Ferenc Puskas and it is located in the community of Felcsut in the Vali Valley at a distance of 40 kilometers to the west of of Budapest, Hungary.

The arena was designed by Tamas Dobrosi in collaboration with the practice of Doparum Architects, reconstructing a former residence based on the plans of Imre Makovecz. The arena is a UEFA category III football stadium which can host Hungarian league matches and junior tournaments as well as international competitions.

The number of seats is of around 3400 but they are vastly more comfortable than the usual European stadiums with 420 seats for the VIP sections and seven lodges on the second floor. Aside from the main arena there are also amenities like a press conference room for up to 50 persons, a media tribune with 70 seats and several studios for live broadcasting.
