Feyenoord opts for new stadium plans over fan-backed ‘Red Kuip’ expansion

by Tom Anstey | 03 Jun 2014

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 – would 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 effort and attention” towards those plans.

The research group said both projects were “achievable,” but the consortium’s plans – which will also include a new €16m (US$21.7m, £12.9m) training ground and some form of accommodation – would be built on a much larger area of land, offering potential for further development.

Original plans in 2006 called for a 90,000-seat stadium to be built in a new location on Rotterdam’s Nieuwe Maas river to be completed by 2016. However, those plans fell through due to financial difficulties.

In September 2012, Feyenoord then confirmed plans for a new €300m (US$407.8m, €243.2m) stadium to be built by 2018, but the project has come up against fierce opposition, with objectors fearful it would provide value for money for Rotterdam.

The new development plans would make the stadium the largest in Holland and feature a retractable roof to house other events. Building work is planned to start in Q3 of 2015, with a completion date of 2018.
