Steaua Bucharest to move to stadium in small town

Steaua Bucharest financer Gigi Becali said yesterday (Thurs) the team would play at Buzau, a small town nearly 120 km from Bucharest.

His decision comes after the Defence Ministry said yesterday that the lease contract for the Ghencea stadium had ended, as Steaua Bucharest had not paid rent for more than 60 days.

"It is clear the team is not going to play in Ghencea anymore. Now I'll start to take out all seats. I won't leave anything there, in Ghencea sports base. I'll take all! The lightning equipment for night matches, the scoring panel...all that I can take, legally, I'll take!" Becali said.

Becali added he may appeal to the CFR Cluj stadium in case Steaua reaches the Champions League, as the stadium in Buzau is not approved for CL matches.

Buzau is a small town nearly 120 km eastern Bucharest, with around 130,000 inhabitants. The town's team, Gloria Buzau, is currently in the second league.
