Izmit Stadi – design description
Designed in 2012, the vision of new stadium for Izmit (100km east of Istanbul) came from Alper Aksoy office, authors of various stadium projects across Turkey.
It is hoped to be the central ground for Kocaeli province, though located outside Izmit, in the outskirts. Second construction tender was launched in July 2013 and should all go well, the stadium should be ready in 2015 at the latest.
New stadium: Kocaeli Stadyumu
You may be surprised to see 34,000 seats in the fourth league. But you may be even more surprised to see most of them filled! But hey, in Izmit supporters even packed their old stadium to capacity when they played a league lower. This one was needed, simply.
