Estadio Nemesio Díez – construction description
The stadium with two World Cups and reputation for great atmosphere is about to be expanded by 8-10,000 seats to reach 30,000. Three stands will see structural upgrades, while the western Tribuna del Sol (only uncovered one in the previous stadium) will be built from scratch with as many as three overlapping tiers.
Toluca FC are planning to add VIP towers in the corners, almost copying those from Avellaneda in Argentina. Each pavilion will have 6 floors and also serve as footing for the new roof. Initially envisaged as thick trusses, the final roof structure will be created with over 4,000 thin bars, reaching span of 115 meters without any obstructed views. Multi-storey car park will be built on nearby plot and connected with the stadium by a pedestrian bridges.
The entire project is expected to cost 800 million pesos and is expected to be delivered in under two years. If reached, this deadline will ensure reopening to celebrate the club’s centenary.
