Description: Stadion Den Dreef
Old track and field stadium in Leuven has been completely redeveloped in 2002, having three stands built from scratch and becoming football-only. Largest, main grandstand has two tiers, while all remaining sections are single-tiered.
Although this has been quite an extensive redevelopment, already in 2011 mayor of Leuven announced plans to build a new 20,000-seater in the city. If those plans were to come true, Den Dreef would have to be demolished.
Belgium: New Leuven stand ready in 6 months
In January they were dismantling the old terrace. Now the new 3,500-seat grandstand is already standing, awaiting opening in upcoming weeks. It’s just a shame the team got relegated.
Belgium: New main stand in Leuven rising
So far the ground is flat with only piling done, but soon Stadion Den Dreef will have a brand new grandstand able to hold 3,500 people. This marks the first phase of complete revamp.
New design: Large changes coming near Brussels
Today it’s one of the smallest stadiums throughout the Jupiler League. But in a couple seasons Den Dreef might be a new model for stadia of its scale. First works are already ongoing.
