That is really different with the gaps on the 1st and 2nd tiers but a continuous 3rd tier. I like doing something unique, don't know if I'd repeat it elsewhere though.

I cant decide if I think this stadium looks horrible or if I really love it. Either way, that third tier is ridicilously steep!!!

Fans of Belgian giants Standard Liege caused outrage on Sunday when they unfurled a banner showing a mocked-up image of former captain Steven Defour being beheaded.

The sick banner showed a masked man holding a blood-covered machete in his right hand and the severed head of Defour in the other.

It was accompanied by the words "Red or Dead" (red is the colour of Standard).

Defour was playing for arch-rivals Anderlecht in the game which his new side lost 2-0 and ended with him being sent-off.

Standard Liège president Bruno Venanzi has said the Belgian First Division A football club expects to commence work next year on a project to expand its Stade Maurice Dufrasne from a capacity of 27,500 to 32,000.

Standard filed a building permit for the project earlier this year and expects approval in early 2020, with work to commence before the end of the year. Stade Maurice Dufrasne first opened in 1909 and is set to undergo substantial redevelopment.

“This is a huge construction site and the work will be substantial as the T2, which is the stadium’s oldest stand, will be completely demolished and replaced by a new stand which will have better visibility of the pitch,” Venanzi said, according to Belgian broadcaster RTBF.

“This stand will complete the stadium by closing the ring. The capacity of the stadium will be increased by 4,500 seats.”

Venanzi said a key part of the project will be enhancing the comfort levels for fans throughout the stadium. He continued: “This is not just about the stadium itself, a business centre is also planned with commercial space.

“A supermarket will be developed behind Tribune 3. A fitness centre is also planned and let’s not forget the improvement of the restaurant area in and around the stadium, and the new car parks that will accommodate more than 1,500 cars in total.”

Venanzi said the project is expected to cost €80m (£68.4m/$88.4m), adding that no public funding will be sought. A new tramway is currently being developed in Liège, with a station to be located close to the stadium.

Venanzi added: “It’s something great for Liège, I’m a big supporter of the tram. The work has already begun on the other side of the city and indeed the… station will be just behind the stadium, so it will significantly improve mobility in the area on match days but also on other days.”

Favorable opinion for the future stadium of the Standard!

The Municipal College of Liège has just announced it: following the public inquiry, a conditional favourable opinion is given for the Standard Stadium file. File that will be forwarded to the SPW, the authority responsible for issuing the permit… The application is subject to a so-called “integrated” permit, i.e. it has a licence to operate – an environmental permit, an planning permit and a socio-economic authorization.

As a reminder, the project aims to give the future stadium a more contemporary look “by ensuring better integration in its environment”, the City of Liège is told. The application for a permit therefore includes the renovation and extension of the stadium, as well as the development of a large esplanade for the reception of fans, the redevelopment of the Ushe Bridge interchange and the creation of complementary functions. Namely a multifunctional office building, HoReCa spaces, a fitness, a crèche, a commercial area and a space dedicated to leisure.

This expansion will also increase from 28,700 to 32,000 seats.

Stade Maurice Dufrasne (Belgium) rehabilitation work is all set to begin this month with construction companies of Belgium – BAM Galère and CIT Blaton – having been selected to deliver the redevelopment work.

The City of Liège gave the go-ahead to the development in May 2020 as part of a multiphase plan that is expected to take four years to complete.

Assar Architects’ vision for the stadium will see the capacity expanded to 35,000, with the addition of an esplanade to enhance access. Fans currently gather on a public road surrounding the facility before and after games and the esplanade will solve this issue.

The redevelopment also intends to transform the stadium into a multipurpose venue. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Liège Verviers Namur has requested that Standard build 6,000 m² of office space, which will also incorporate an array of other offerings.

These include commercial space, a fan shop, creche, playground, a “laser game” area, wellness and health center and a new club museum.

I'm not sure whether it will be possible to start this month. The city delivered a positive advice in June 2020 but the Walloon Region had some remarks in August before it could authorise the permit. The current phase of the project is that of the public inquiry, which should come to an end by next week.

Plans (these will be probably be taken offline after the public inquiry):

License granted for the new Standard de Liège stadium

The Walloon Region has given its agreement to the Standard for the construction of its new stadium on the banks of the Meuse in Sclessin, we learned this Wednesday from the Public Service of Wallonia (SPW),
confirming information from the Avenir group.

The Liège football club therefore has the authorization to move forward with its project.

The objective is to redevelop the enclosure of Sclessin by notably increasing the number of seats in the stands, which would go from 28,700 to 32,126. T2 will be raised and the angles with T3 and T4 will be closed. It is also a question of redesigning the surrounding roads, renovating the changing rooms, lighting and making the esplanade more secure. The project also plans to build a set of services around the enclosure, such as offices, catering or commercial spaces. The total budget is around 100 million euros. The work should take place in different phases and spread over several years.
