Description: De Kuip (I)
This vision by BAM Sports was presented as one of the possible variants of De Kuip redevelopment. The German company suggested adding a completely independent third ring of stands with its own infrastructure. This would bring capacity to 65,000 people.
De Kuip would also get a completely new roof over all seats – tensile membrane one, with four giant screens hanged over the centre of the pitch. Possible addition might include a retractable central part of the roof, making the stadium more independent from weather conditions.
New spectator facilities would improve comofort, while a vast expansion of hospitality space (with 90 skyboxes, among other) should boost Feyenoord's finances.
At the same time the stadium should cost only over half of the price suggested for new Varkenoord stadium.
On May 1 2014 the concept was presented by independent scouts as the best option for Feyenoord and was given a go-ahead.
