DOTA 2, priority over FCSB, Rapid and the national team
The National Arena is not available for October football matches. Due to the event, 3 football teams could not support their matches here: Romania (against Armenia), Rapid (against CFR) and FCSB (against CS Mioveni). If the national team had an optimal option in hand, Ghencea, Rapid and FCSB will be forced to leave Bucharest, Mioveni, respectively Buzau.
The tour brings prestige and visibility to Bucharest, and will be followed, according to organizers, by 100 million people. There will also be financial benefits for the Romanian state, the organizers will pay to the national budget 16% of the total prizes of 40 million dollars. After Euro 2020, we show that we can organize large-scale events at the National Arena. Next year there will be big events, especially cultural events. We have increased the revenue level of the National Arena by approximately 2 million lei in previous years to 6 million lei in 2021 (6 million without Euro 2020, 12 million lei with Euro 2020)
