The Republican Stadium is to be disbanded and the US Embassy in Moldova will be built on its territory. Today, July 18, the Cabinet of Ministers approved at the meeting the draft law on the transfer of the land on which the stadium is located, to the embassy.
The immovable property will be delivered at the market price according to the approved project, but it will be negotiated by the Government and the Embassy. According to some reports, the land, which has over 5 ha, is estimated in the public record at about 58.3 million lei.
The US had shown its intention to buy the stadium territory in December 2017.
The Republican Stadium, which was the largest stadium in the country, was demolished in 2007, and has since been abandoned.
The decision makers from various governments have made electoral promises about its reconstruction projects, but none of the promises have come true.
