No tennis stadium on Margaret Island

The cabinet does not support the construction of a tennis stadium on Margaret Island in the current form of the plans, Prime Minister’s Office head János Lázár said on Thursday.

“The cabinet cannot allow the island to be sacrificed,” Lázár said.

That means there will be no tennis stadium built on the island for the planned ATP tournament in 2019.
