Description: Lavans Stadion

Historically known simply as De Braak, the stadium was opened in 1967 east of the centre of Helmond. It lies in a complex of 10 (!) full-sized training pitches, which proved to affect its blueprint.

When completely rebuilt in 1994-2000, it was fitted between the fields and family housing in the south, where no end zone was possible to build. Instead a new east side (noticeably with skyboxes along the field) was opened in 1994, west side in 1997 and a north end replaced terracing in 2000.

Eventually building a new stadium for Helmond Sport is contemplated in a new location.
