Kantrida – design description

The vision of new stadium replacing the old Kantrida was announced in May 2013, Chile first renderings leaked in late July. The new stadium would retain current pitch location (east-west axis), but lose athletic track around it to bring fans closer to the action.

Capacity is estimated at 12,000 (with 11,000 covered by light membrane canopy) with the north side dedicated to corporate clients mostly, while remaining stands would hold regular fans, each having two tiers.

The budget, thought to stand at €15 million, would be jointly covered by private company Social Sport (70%) and the municipality of Rijeka (30%).

Enthusiasm among fans wasn’t the only reaction to the vision as proposed stadium layout doesn’t offer similarly dramatic visual impressions as the current one, losing both the northern cliff and view of the Adriatic Sea to the south.
