The entire roof -with exception of a small section above the main stand- has been removed.



Currently, AZ and the municipality of Alkmaar are in disagreement whether the 15 December match against Ajax could take place in Alkmaar, including attendees. Alkmaar has stated that in any case it could take place without fans. A decision is expected to be taken within the next coming days.

NETHERLANDS - Stadium and Arena Development News

AZ will definitively return to the AFAS Stadion to play -crowd included- against Ajax next Saturday 15 December.


The two top floodlights have been installed on a temporary construction. There is hear-say about the floodlights being replaced by LED-lights.

AZ has already filed for a construction permit to build the new roof.

Hopefully they will consider extending parts of the bowl upwards, while they have the chance. The highest part of the tier (where the roof has collapsed)has a 32nd row, whereas the sections behind the goals only have a 25nd upper row.
Aligning the entire tier to the 32nd row would add another 2,000 seats. Currently, the leg trusses supporting the former roof structure are directly attached to the top row, disallowing adding extra rows.

This technique has always been a possibility, as can be seen below from a preliminary study for a 40k extension. Yes, this was a plan from 2007 to go from 17k to 40k.



Another rumour is that the new stadium roof will get new foundations, further removed from the stadium. This might allow the aforementioned upwards expansion. In addition, this would allow for a standardised roof, as was planned for future expansions. The now dismantled roof structure was tailor-made, going up and down and extending and retracting, completely following the parabolic form of the stands. This was purely a case of aesthetics.

AZ was already planning to expand the stadium to about 20/21k by covering the moat. Reaching 22/23k however, would materialise the club’s very first expansion plans from back in 2005/2006 when the stadium was still under construction.

It honestly doesn't look bad without it. It'll be miserable in December but probably nice in April.

The result was bad, this view from the away section wasn’t.

NETHERLANDS - Stadium and Arena Development News

An artist impression from AZ’s new year’s kickoff yesterday.



This is not the final design. This picture was taken regardless of AZ’s request to the media not to spread it around. At least it explains why the quality is crappy, aside from the picture having been cropped.

The idea would be to:

-make a roof on one level with a transparant part closest to the pitch, extending further than the former roof.
-a mega truss will be added to carry the roof over the main stand
-close the moat with extra seats
-create a concourse around the stadium

As for the planning:

- Summer 2020/phase I: the aim is to install the new roof and -if local government allows it- to increase capacity by adding extra rows on top the goal stands
- Summer 2021/phase II: would include extending the main stand and the fanatics stand (on the left side of the picture) towards the pitch
- Date unknown/phase III: has not been financed yet, but would include extending the the remaining stands towards the field

Depending on what will be allowed and feasible, capacity could go up with 2,500 to 5,000 seats
