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?
Those two corners you mention are actually stands. The one on the left is the 'away'-section. The one on the right is a family stand. They're steel structures. On non-matchdays, the outsides of those corners can be opened to let wind pass through it. This enables the pitch to grow better.

There's nothing wrong with De Kuip. Great atmosphere, no restricted views, fans close to the pitch and a bit of character (unlike the boring generic modern 30-40000 stadiums you see in some countries). I also love the traditional floodlights. Shame that it's filled with Feyenoord fans though - I hate them!!

Ah, that's nice. I searched and found this picture and you're right.

Just to show you that it's not all football - well many of the stadiums posted are used for other kinds of events as well actually.

Thialf ice-skating stadium, Heerenveen.

During the nineties, many Dutch stadiums were old and ugly. So, many new stadiums were build or existing ones were rebuild or renovated. Nowadays, most Dutch clubs in the 2 professional divisions have modern stadiums, athough often quite small. The few remaining without a modern stadium are currently busy getting one (AZ Alkmaar, Den Haag). This new stadium boom has resulted in bigger attendances.
As a result, some of these mid-nineties stadiums are too small already and are being enlarged (Heerenveen) or are planned too (Twente, NEC Nijmegen). The recently opened Euroborg in Groningen is already too small as every game is a sell-out.

Belgium has a lot of crappy stadiums because it is far less professional than Dutch football which also results in a lot less money. The difference in quality between the Dutch and Belgian stadiums used for Euro 2000 was quite shocking.

I don't know why Italy has so many crappy stadiums. Might have something to do with the fact that most Italian clubs are enormously in debt. I believe there are quite some new stadium or renovation projects going on in Italy at the moment (Juventus, Torino, Lazio).

They're deffinitley not the best stadiums in the world, I much prefer English and Spanish and German stadiums, but there is still something real and wholesome about these Dutch stadiums! I especially like the Amsterdam stadium, looks really impressive from the outside!

Italian stadia were built largely with the Italia90 in mind. So they were under construction in the late 1980's and like big hair they dated really badly.
Plus many are city owned so the club has little say in renovations.

Why oh Why do the Europeans on the forum ALWAYS exaggerate their stadium capacities???

Alkmaar are NOT building a 30000 stadium, it will be 16000. Here are the true capacities of the Dutch Stadiums -

Amsterdam - 51859
Feyenoord - 51480
Philipsstadion - 35119, NOT 37000
Vitesse Arnhem - 26600, NOT 30000
Arkestadion Enschede upgrade (work not started) - 28000
De Goffert Nijmegen (no definite upgrade plans) - 12470, NOT 26000
Heerenveen upgrade - 26000, NOT 28000
Utrecht - 24426
Euroborg - 20000
Alkmaar new stadium - 16000, NOT 30000

Still very good stadiums, but why is it only UK posters actually state the true capacities of their stadiums?

Philips Stadion 35.200 (www.psv.nl)
Vitesse 29.600 (www.gelredome.nl)
SC Heerenveen 21.600-26.800 (www.sc-heerenveen.nl/www.stadionwelt.de)
AZ 17.000-17.500 (according to one of the stadium constructors, in an e-mail he sent me) and is (most) likely to be extended to some 30.000 to 32.000 seats.

Alkmaar may be extended in the future, but that applies to almost any stadium. At the moment, it is being built for 16000 seats.

Gelredome holds 26600 for soccer matches.
