Thank you for your overview Gerald! Maybe it is also nice to mention here that there are plans to extend the capacity of the 'Kuip', home of Feyenoord, upto 72.000 seats.

Extend or build a new venue? Judging by the pics, it's going to be the latter.

Update: Holland's Best Future Stadiums

Here are some pictures of the Abe Lenstra Stadium in Heerenveen rightnow:



And the next pictures are from The Galgenwaard in Utrecht. This stadium was improved last year.



I think the stadium of Utrecht is one of the most beautiful stadiums in Europe, in it's class.
Does anyone have more pictures of new stadiums of construction pictures in Holland?


I took al these pictures today.

Absolutely stunning pictures Gerald182! I've been once in the FC Utrecht stadium when it was not finished, but I have to return real soon because it looks amazing now! Also the SC Heerenveen stadium becomes really impressive, and I think the Dutch clubs are doing well to expand en rebuild their stadiums because it generates more money so the Dutch league will be even more attractive. Gerald182, maybe you can go to the nearly completed FC Groningen stadium soon, or to the AZ Alkmaar stadium which is under construction? Would be nice because these pics are absolutely great!

NETHERLANDS - Stadium and Arena Development News

Admit it. Don't you all like the Dutch stadiums because of our realism? We have some kind of philosophy about stadiums, which is really simple. Why build an 70.000 seats stadium if you only sell it out for one game per season? (Juventus)So that's why they're quite small. I'll give you a top ten in size. Enjoy!

1. Amsterdam Arena, Amsterdam
51 859 seats






2. De Kuip, Rotterdam
51 137 seats






3. Philipsstadion, Eindhoven
35 119 seats






4. DSB-stadion, Alkmaar
30 000 seats
This one's a little hard to explain. AZ Alkmaar is currently building their new stadium, but it has 17 000 seats. The demand is huge; the new season the stadium's entirely sold out at season tickets. The big boss of AZ said that they would build a second tier (30 000 seats ) if the waiting list contained 3000 people, which was reached today. So at the pics, imagine the second tier, which will be ready a season later, summer 2007.





5. Gelredome, Arnhem
26 600 seats






6. Abe Lenstra Stadion, Heerenveen
currently 21 600 seats, being expanded from 14 000 to 28 000






7. Nieuw Galgenwaard, Utrecht
24 426 seats





8. Euroborg Stadion, Groningen
20 000 seats





9. Parkstad Limburg, Kerkrade
19 200 seats





10. MyCom Stadion, Breda
17 064 seats

Realism is nice, but it its better if that reality is rather more impressive than it is in the Netherlands.

WOW! the Ajax stadium looks like a giant casino boat floating down river!

its incredible when you consider just how strong PSV are at the moment with a moderate stadium in a small city. Infact, its remarkable just how strong the Dutch football is, Hats off!

That is great news! Are there any renders as to how it would look with the 2nd tier?

Realism is nice, but then there's the likes of Twente who've been packed out for ages. Just think of the revenue they've missed out on if they had made it a bit bigger.

Twente's going to build a second tier in about two years:

Currently: 13 500 seats


Going to be: 27 000 seats

Yep, but PSV's making huge debts because of their stadium.

Surely PSV have the support to fill a third 50 thousand seater? They must be selling out every game at the moment

Dutch stadiums are very, very modern, as is the Netherlands in general. Superb stadiums for a small country. I love Utrechts stadium.

The Amsterdam Arena is massive from the outside as the pitch level is actually above the base level of the stadium. At ground level is a huge car park. I go to Amsterdam twice a year and always take in an Ajax game. Great club. Very modern stadium with amazing facilities. Quite far out from the centre of Amsterdam, but transport is good and you cannot get a better city to relax in during the summer. Everybody, like the Germans, speaks perfect English.

We do sell out every game, actually. But as the stadium has been expanded gradually over the last 15 years, this is the biggest capacity we've ever had. 36.000 is just fine at the moment, imo. The club are on a high right now, and while PSV fans have always been very loyal, we'll have to see what happens when results start to worsen.

And besides, PSV are still paying off the current stadium. The current loan turns out to be quite a burden on the club. Perhaps in another 10 to 15 years time, we can start to think again about an expansion, if necessary.

De Kuip is starting to look a bit dated really.

It certainly is. There are some starting plans for a 70 000 seater, but it's the question whether they'll fill it or not, With their 50 000 seater they only get 35 000 - 40 000 visitors per game.

Agreed, but it's very easy for PSV to expand, the upper corners are left empty.



But they already expanded from 30 000 to 35 000 a couple of years ago didn't they?

But since the costs for the stadium are way too high, why not filling up the corners so they can get the extra money?

I knew they had plans to add a second tier but I didn't know there is a firm timescale now, so thanks for that. Shame it's still not going to be for a couple of years.
