Description: Stade National de Luxembourg
New national stadium for football and rugby players of Luxembourg will stand along the southern bypass of Luxembourg city. Though situated far from the centre, this site will have great transport links. Beside the road access, it will also be served by Luxembourg’s first tram line, which will end nearby.
After the stadium is finished, a 2,000-car P+R parking space will be created here, also serving the stadium. In direct vicinity of the building 159 VIP parking spaces will be created to meet UEFA Category 4 requirements, allowing the ground to hold major international games.
The stadium will lie along the east-west axis instead of traditional north-south one because of its location between existing and planned roads. Main grandstand will be created along the south side of the field.
The architectural concept of this stadium was created by GMP Architekten (Germany) and BENG Architectes (Luxembourg), based on contract signed in Sept 2014. By July 2015 the initial vision was released, while final documentation is expected in June 2016. Construction should start in early 2017 and end possibly in late 2018 or first months of 2019.
Total value of the project is estimated to be €66 million, including temporary infrastructure adjustments (€59m on stadium alone). The sports ministry of Luxembourg will provide €39 million, while the municipality of Luxembourg should contribute the remainder. This estimate is nearly twice the price considered for the stadium in 2014.
Luxembourg: No official games until 2021?
Speaking to RTL Radio the president of Luxembourg's football federation suggested it would be “almost impossible” to see games played before early 2021. This signifies another delay of the national stadium project.
