Lions Arena – design description
New football stadium in Potenza would stand in the place of so-called Cip Zoo (former pig farm), south of the town's historic and picturesque centre. The area is well communicated, which makes it very lucrative for commercial investment.
That's why here, on 10.5 hectares, the stadium would be accompanied by high-volume shopping centre, along with 1,000 parking spaces. It is precisely the inclusion of commercial uses that would ensure private financing of the entire project, without burdening taxpayers.
The stadium's cost would be between €40 and 50 million and construction is expected to take 18 to 24 months. Ultimately, the stadium would hold over 12,000 people. However, phasing is enabled and might see a fully operational version for 9,000 to 10,000 people first, expanded at a later stage.
