Stadio Friuli – design description

Along the redevelopment plans only current main grandstand with its massive roof is to be retained. All other sections will be torn and new stands will be built right behind the pitch down (starting with south, then east and then north end), without the existing running track.

Behind the new seats sloped ground was to create extensive access routes, a pedestal of sort. No infrastructure was planned under the terracing, all catering and sanitary facilities are to be atop the stand. This was first seen as cost-cutting measure, but eventually such solution wasn't pursued. Instead, additional spaces for leisure and commercial outlets was created on field level (-1), while facilities for fans during matchday were fitted above.

Initial capacity of the revamped stadium was expected to be just below 30,000, but it was later revised to over 25,000. What hasn't changed since 2012 was the phased development that saw first the new north, east and finally south stand built.
