Spain: New stadium for Sevilla FC officially presented A new stadium in Seville? Real Betis won't be the only ones to boast a state-of-the-art facility. How will the future arena differ from the current Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán and how much will it cost to build?


A new vision for Sevilla's home

During the Annual General Meeting and via its social media, Sevilla FC showed what its new home will look like. Its construction is scheduled for 2026 and the Nervión district, the site where the current facility stands, has been chosen as the location. The project, scheduled to begin exactly on June 1, 2026, and to be completed in 2028, includes the demolition of the current structure to make room for the new Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium.

The new arena will have a larger capacity than the current facility - the stands previously held 43,883 seats. The future stadium will be able to accommodate 55,000 fans, with 10 percent of the seats dedicated to VIP areas. One of the most important elements of the design is the roof, which covers the entire stands. Instead, the fans are to be closer to the pitch, which will improve both the reception of matches and the atmosphere. In addition, the Gol Norte will become a unified stand with a seating capacity of 15,000, with no division into rings.

Strategic development and financial planning

The stadium redevelopment, estimated at €300-350 million, is part of a larger plan to generate year-round revenue unrelated to the club's sporting form. A significant part of the funding will come from the CVC deal, and projections indicate an increase in the club's revenue of more than €26m per year. The upgrade aims to make Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán not just a venue that benefits on match day, but a multi-purpose facility open to the city, offering a range of activities for local residents.

Despite the general excitement about the new stadium, there are concerns about the organisation of matches during the construction period. With Real Betis' Benito Villamarín stadium also undergoing renovations, it is expected that the two teams will share La Cartuja for some time. Such an arrangement poses a logistical challenge, as the venue also hosts some matches for the Spanish national team.
