Two or even three tiers of seating, just under 14,000 people in the famous K-Block and total capacity of nearly 46,000. All of that might happen in Dresden, according to leaked feasibility study.
It’s been confirmed in recent weeks that Dynamo Dresden are opting for an expansion of their home stadium. According to the Sachsen Morgenpost there already is a feasibility study for DDV-Stadion upgrades. The news outlet published scanned images to prove it.
The most important information is: DDV-Stadion is possible to expand and that expansion may be very significant. In total it may grow by 13,709 seats and standing places, which combined with existing capacity would mean 45,775 people at peak!
Such immense growth could be achieved by additional rows of seating on top of three stands (east side would remain unchanged). Behind the goals there would be 20 rows on a new second tier, while along the west side two separate balconies of 10 and 8 rows would be created. This unusual layout of upgraded west stand is caused by lack of space for expansion.
Should all these phases be delivered, expansion would bring 600 new VIP seats, 2,237 additional places in the away section, 4,708 more in the K-Block and 6,164 regular seats. The K-Block deserves a mention because it already holds 9,055 people and adding a second tier would mean it growing to 13,763 people.
Perhaps the most surprising is the projected cost. According to Morgenpost’s website TAG24.de, it would only require €25 million to deliver all changes.
