MCH Arena – stadium description
New stadium for FC Midtjylland was built almost at the heart of the region. It was planned as part of a major commercial and entertainment complex south of the city, later connected with a new southern ring-road of Herning.
Single-tiered stands consumed over 90 million krone to build back in 2004. In domestic layout, with terracing, the stadium offers almost 12,000 capacity. However, in all-seater mode the size falls down to under 10,000.
Western grandstand is topped by two levels of floor space with panoramic view of the field. These facilities include a large VIP lounge able to take up to 1,800 guests.
