Expansion of the football stadium in Dresden is expected to add almost 14,000 to its capacity, meaning total number of available seats and terracing at 45,000+.
Due to the building's already steep stands and scarce space behind the ground, it would only grow on three sides (main east stand excluded) and would have to grow vertically. This, while being the most challenging part of the project, is also its strength, because the outcome might prove to be Europe's steepest stadium.
The vision foresees adding a second tier behind each goal (with incline just under 43º) and even steeper addition to the west stand. Here two extra tiers would be added, topped with 25 skyboxes. The third tier could exceed 45º which is as far as stadiums can go.
Dresden: Building a model of the steepest modern grandstand
It might just be the single steepest stadium in Europe, significantly bove UEFA and FIFA recommendations. To make sure it would be safe, Dynamo Dresden will build a 1:1 mockup.
New design: Steep, steeper, Dresden
If they really build it, Dynamo Dresden will enjoy one of Europe's steepest stadiums if not the single steepest one. Once it's safe to move forward, DDV-Stadion will gain over 40% in capacity.
