It may only be a training venue, but the new stadium of Dinamo Bucuresti could easily hold a Euro game itself. Here comes first of three planned new stadia in Bucharest.
As we informed you late into 2015, the ventral government in Bucharest announced complete reconstruction of three major stadiums in the build-up to Euro 2020. UEFA doesn’t require them, because only the large Stadionul National will host official games.
The planned additional three will be secondary training venues. But since all major Bucharest-based clubs long for new stadiums, this is an opportunity to upgrade the infrastructure.
First of the three plans is the proposed Dinamo stadium. Revealed on Tuesday, it will be built on the very spot of existing Stadionul Stefan Cel Mare, in northern Bucharest. The building will be created on a plinth under which a 3-floor parking will be created, able to accommodate 1,087 cars. This way enough room would be created for a large public plaza south of the stadium.
Retaining the club’s red colour throughout its façade, the new stadium will be entirely financed by the Romanian government. Judging by the released materials, it should be covered by red mesh, creating an angular diamond-like shape.
The seating layout will see a large upper tier with 17,350 seats and slightly smaller lower one for 10,350 fans. Also, 20 skyboxes for 2,015 guests and 450 media seats are planned.
Altogether this will be a very standard stadium in terms of structure, which comes as an effort to keep it economic to build. To this date the government has set aside € 100 million for all three projects. While construction is still cheap in Romania, this represent a very modest budget.
