Let's post here all the news concerning the Dutch football stadiums...
Current situation; several clubs have plans to build new stadiums or expand their current ones, here an overview. I might forget some btw...
Expanded their Grolsch Veste already with two second tiers, a third will follow and probably be opened before the 2011/2012 season.
Not sure if a fourth second tier will follow, perhaps later.
Current capacity: 24000
After this phase: 30000
of proposed stadium if completed.
Move directly to the Feyenoord board...
Only play in the Polman Stadium since 1999, but want to move on and grow into a structural Eredivisie club. For that they need a new stadium again.
However, the municipality still didn't vote so nothing is definite yet.
Proposed capacity: 15000
Currently playing in 'de Koel', the oldest Eredivisie stadium.
The club wants to build a new stadium next to the river Maas in Blerick, right opposite to the city centre of Venlo. It has to be a multi-functional complex which shouldn't only hold football matches, but as well 'cultural and business events'. The want a retractable roof like in Amsterdam and Arnhem. Beside just a stadium, there should be offices, a casino and more of that stuff.
The municipality still didn't decide definite so nothing is for sure yet. Although the definite project chosen will be 'Lijnstad'.
Proposed capacity: 15000, with possibilities of expansion to 25000.
Also plans in the Achterhoek to build a new stadium. However they haven't even picked a location yet...
Originally they wanted to move to Wehl, a town close to Doetinchem, but the fans blocked that. Now they're eyeing on a location in Doetinchem.
There have been very vague plans of moving to Leidsche Rijn. At this moment no option, perhaps in the future.
After many years they finally have permission to start with the building works. A new stadium should be finished in 2013, the location is definite, next to the N3 motorway.
Proposed capacity: 6000 with possibilities of expansion to 16000.
Two years ago plans were unveiled for building a new stadium right behind the WTX-Expo buildings. it should be finished in 2013 but I've got no clue whether this is still concrete.
Proposed capacity: 15000, with possibilities of expansion to 20000.
There are vague plans of new stadiums in Veendam, Eindhoven (for the small one), Apeldoorn and Deventer too.
Heerenveen and Groningen still have got plans for expansions, but not right now because of their financial situation.
As for the rest, there are several amateurclubs with plans for new stands etc. Will try to keep that up to date from now on.
