Netanya Stadium – stadium description

Decision to build a new stadium for Netanya was made back in 2003 as the outdated Sar-Tov Stadium was impossible to expand with plot constraints in the strict centre. That’s why new stadium with triple the capacity of its predecessor, was planned for southern outskirts, just next to highway no. 2.

Groundbreaking took place in 2005, but delays led to the first stage being done no sooner than October 2012. That’s when two covered stands alongside the pitch were created, accommodating 13,800 people (with 36 skyboxes). Room for two end stands has been left with second phase envisaged to raise capacity to 24,000.

Apart from games by Maccabi Netanya (first one played on November 4, 2012) games of Euro 2013 (U21 category) have been granted to this stadium.
