Description: AFAS Stadion

The plan foresees two new stands being built in the north (first phase) and south (second), together forming an L-shape with filled corners.

Both the new stands will be double-tiered with entire lower tier dedicated for safe standing and upper decks all-seated. The west end will also see skyboxes built between the two levels, no less than 11. Additionally a new disabled spectators section will be built behind the eastern goal as an independent structure.

Altogether the stands will bring a capacity increase of 5,000, bringing it to 18,000. To save the neighbouring houses from excessive traffic with limited parking the club suggested to provide a shuttle service for fans from more distant parking sites.

Also as part of means to gain local community's approval a new day care is planned under the new stands, addressing the city's great need for such services.
