DEVELOPMENT PIPELINE l STADIUMS


■ Feyenoord Stadium Rotterdam, Netherlands Opening: 2018


Plans for a €177m (US$240.6m, £143.5m) 17,000-seat addition to Dutch football side Feyenoord’s new ground have been rejected in favour of a brand new 70,000-all seater stadium costing €200m (US$271m, £162m). The newest set of plans – proposed


by a consortium of BAM, Eneco Energie and Siemens – will see a brand new 70,000-all seater stadium built at a cost of €200m (US$271m, £162m) . Red Kuip – a fan backed plan – would


have seen adjustments made to the current stadium, increasing capacity by nearly 17,000 with a new third tier. Following four months of


research into the proposed projects, Feyenoord opted to explore the consortium’s option, which was described as “the most promising” and will now focus “all the eff ort and attention” towards those plans. The new development plans would


make the stadium the largest in Holland. Building work is planned to start in Q3 of 2015, with a completion date set for 2018. Details: http://lei.sr?a=W2U9b

to take this historic step which will require eff ort from everyone involved but which will guarantee the comforts that come with a new installation with the latest technolo- gies at the service of its users and athletes.” Details: http://lei.sr?a=K4p9Z
