Preliminary design expansion Sparta Stadion
The "Sparta Stadion" can be perceived as a stadium with two sides. On the side of the city the appearance of "Het Kasteel", Dutch for the castle, is related to the traditional residential area Spangen. On the other side, north of the stadium, the main building is related to the industrial appearance of the 'Spaanse Polder'.
Sparta is planning to expand the stadium with 1100 seats. This is possible by lowering the football field and adding seats in the ring between the existing seats and the lowered field. The ring facilities for food and beverage will be renewed and expanded as well.
Furthermore, more space will be created for football players, supporters, journalists and commercial activities. An extension and reorganisation of the main building is necessary in order to achieve this.
