Karaman Şehir Stadyumu – design description
The new municipal stadium, situated 6 km east of the centre of Karaman, will be built on 57,000 m2, within the university and new residential campus area. Karaman is a city in south-central Turkey, located in Central Anatolia, north of the Taurus Mountains, about 100 km south of Konya.
The project, being carried out jointly by the municipality of Karaman and the Ministry of Youth and Sports, aims to deliver a modern, functional stadium that can host international competitions. Designed in accordance with UEFA's criteria, the stadium will have a capacity of 15,000 seats. The facility has been under construction since 2017.
The Turkish venue includes a VIP tribune for 241 people, 25 skyboxes, two different hospitality areas, a press section for 155 people, and a 100-person meeting room. Total number of 417 parking spaces, both open and internal, will be available for guests.
In the design, it is aimed to increase the amount of ventilation in the field by keeping the north and south stands low, together with the sunshine duration of the natural 74x112 m grass field. This attitude also reflects the spirit of football, allowing the project to take on a dynamic expression.
The stadium is the biggest investment in Karaman after the development of the fast train transport in the city centre.
