Nieuw Nationaal Stadion (I) – design description

The concept is one of three bids for the design, construction and operation of Belgium’s new national stadium. The ground’s capacity has been pre-set at 60,250 seats and its site is located in northern Brussels, at Parking C near the current national stadium.

The complex will occupy 11 hectares altogether, while inside the stadium seats for corporate clients will be divided into several categories. There are two restaurants overlooking the field planned (100-seat each), 90 skyboxes (for 1,100 people), a box of honor (350) and a special top class box (50). Additionally, some 4,000 business seats will be placed on the main stand. Also, wheelchair users will have 250 spaces.

Selection of the preferred bidder is due in early 2015. Construction will follow in 2016 and within under 3 years (in 2018) the stadium will be delivered, timely ahead of Euro 2020. Afterwards the national team and RSC Anderlecht will provide constant football use.

Along the Brussels Arena Maximus (Jaspers-Eyers, Ghelamco, BAM), the new stadium and its adjoined commercial/leisure facilities will be located on a raised esplanade covered in grass. Underneath is parking sites for the stadium will be provided. Within the stadium itself corner sections were emphasized, providing room for additional facilities that would increase revenue.
