It looks impressive! with two world class stadiums in the Basque Country the Euskal Selekzioa should decide to play two friendlies per season?
Speaking of which we are currently voting on our favoured Basque NT!
Ukraine
Denmark
Sweden
Czech Republic
Serbia
Slovenia
Romania
Turkey
All Nations not going to the World Cup and maybe in need of a friendly before The Euro 2016 qualifiers start??

La Real Sociedad presentó ayer su proyecto de remodelación del estadio de Anoeta que plantea el aumento del aforo hasta las 42.300 localidades y un coste de casi 44 millones de euros, de los cuales el club txuri urdin aportará 30. Jokin Aperribay, el presidente, dijo confiar en que las obras arranquen en verano de 2015 y que duren dos años. «Tendremos que jugar un par de partidos fuera y pediremos que sea en San Mamés».

Real Sociedad present exciting new remodelling plans for Anoeta

Real Sociedad have presented the details of their stadium redevelopment proposals at Anoeta, which will see see capacity increased to up to 42,300 seats, the removal of the athletics track and various other improvements to facilities.

On Tuesday, Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay presented the ambitious plans for the redevelopment of the Anoeta stadium in San Sebastián.

The latest proposals come following a number of changes, after original plans that included four commercial office buildings, one in each corner of the stadium and which would have provided additional revenue towards the project, were rejected by Basque planning authorities.

However, the modified plans involve an alternative revenue stream, with Aperribay confirming that “we’re in advanced negotiations with Kutxabank to sign a sponsorship agreement,” that will partially fund the stadium redevelopment.

Aperribay also explained that “we cannot close our eyes to the future, this is the best ‘signing’ that Real Sociedad could make, which will contribute around €30 million.”

“Execution of the new Anoeta project will consist of four phases, taking place over two seasons. The current budget we are managing is €48.3 million. The final capacity will permit 42,300 spectators.”

As well as explaining the phases of the project in more detail, with construction earmarked to commence in 2015, Aperribay noted that “the minimum capacity during the work will be 28,000 spectators,” whilst also confirming that negotiations have taken place with Athletic Club Bilbao, about temporary use of the new San Mamés, should any of the construction make Anoeta unavailable for use during the league season, but added that much of the work will be done between seasons, to reduce the possibilities of this happening.

It should be recalled that Athletic Club Bilbao reached a similar agreement at the start of this season with Real Sociedad, whilst work at their new stadium was completed.

In conclusion, Aperribay underlined that “the new Anoeta will be what La Real needs. A huge effort for the best stadium possible,” whilst also adding that “La Real should have the stadium it deserves.”
