Description: Polman Stadion

When the plan to build a brand new 15,000-capacity stadium fell through in 2013, Heracles Almelo officials decided to pursue a less costly and somewhat less ambitious plan. Thorough redevelopment of Polman Stadion meant capacity increase to 13,500 at a fraction of the new stadium’s price.

The entire plan was shaped to visually resemble the scrapped new stadium with black-white club colouring and a rounded seating bowl rising from more rectangular commercial spaces. Instead of building brand new stands, the vision adds a prefab second tier to the existing stadium.

First phase began in 2014 with only the additional floor space added to the western grandstand (hospitality and commercial use). Then in 2015 roof was removed to make way for additional seating and all works are expected to end before 2016.
