The management of the club from the city of flamenco ordered a feasibility study for the new stadium. At the same time, they pointed out that it is extremely important to listen to the voice of the fans when carrying out this document.
Sevilla FC has chosen the international company Legends to conduct a study to decide on the direction of the development of the club's infrastructure. This company advised on projects for Wanda Metropolitano, Camp Nou, the reconstruction of Santiago Bernabéu, the new stadium of Tottenham and the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, as well as in many projects in the United States.
The study will analyze all possible options - both the extension and modernization of the current Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán stadium, and the construction of a new venue. Employees of the consulting company will contact a randomly selected group of supporters to hear directly from them about their expectations and ideas regarding the new or modernized arena.
We continue to build the future of Sevilla with You - we read in the club's announcement addressed to the fans.
If Sevilla decides to redevelop the current stadium, it will face the challenge of expanding around a limited area. It is also possible to add a third tier of the stands which could increase the stadium's capacity to around 60,000.
The current Sevilla Fútbol Club stadium, with a capacity of 42,982 seats, is one of the most important venues in the history of European football. Opened in 1958, it hosted, among other things, the 1982 World Cup semi-final (West Germany – France) that ended with penalties. Its atmosphere attracts fans from all over the world. Anyone who has been to the derby of the Andalusian capital (the true Gran Derbi) at least once for sure confirms this.
