On 7 June 2013, Csaba Tarsoly said that the ETO Park is unique in Hungary that it was built without any governmental support. The facility corresponds to the UEFA stadium criteria, except for the fact that a UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League final cannot be played at the stadium since it is not able to host 30,000 spectators.
