Bosuil Stadion – design description
Antwerp's most important stadium is to receive a brand new west grandstand. Interestingly, the previous structure, though built in 1923, received a major overhaul as late as 2015.
Capacity of the west side will more than double, growing from 2,373 to 5,362 people. However, the leap in capacity will be minimised by reductions in other sections (north and east), where efforts to welcome more disabled fans will result in significant cuts in regular seating. Overall the capacity is to stay at 12,975 for the short term, while further phases of the revamp should see it reach 20,000.
The new main stand will not only host more fans than before but most importantly offer six floors of infrastructure behind the auditorium. This way enough room for office, administration, press and hospitality areas will be created.
The project was approved for construcion in early June 2017 and majority of the work is expected to be done by late September.
Belgium: Hurricane tore off part of the roof in Antwerp
Hurricane Aurora, raging in Western Europe, does not spare the sports infrastructure. Last night it reached northern Belgium and caused losses at Bosuil Stadion.
Belgium: Last moment opening in Antwerp
Final approval came just a few hours before the game. Although delayed, the opening of Tribune 4 of Bosuil proved a success.
Antwerp: “Great Old” show off new stand’s facilities
After months of the pandemic it’s finally time to look inside Tribune 4 at Bosuil. The south stand is opening its facilities and Royal Antwerp used this occasion to show the best of what was created.
Antwerp: Roof structure tops Bosuil's 4th stand
By European standards it's still a very fast build. In Belgium – it's long overdue. Still, Bosuil's 'Tribune 4' is growing every day and should be ready to welcome fans when Royal Antwerp's European campaign begins.
Belgium: Royal Antwerp about to break ground again
It's going to be a fascinating but stressful year at Royal Antwerp. The Great Old are returning to European football and cannot play at home due to insufficient standard. In order to change this, they're about to launch their second grandstand reconstruction.
