The new Feyenoord Stadium, designed by OMA & David Gianotten in collaboration with LOLA Landscape Architects, begins the Technical Design phase this week, following Feyenoord Rotterdam and Stadion Feijenoord’s decision to move forward the stadium’s development into the next stage. This new phase marks an important step towards realisation of the project.

At a new location along the river Nieuwe Maas and a highly accessible transportation node, the new stadium proposed by OMA and Feyenoord is a future-proof infrastructure for football and daily activities in the surrounding communities. The stadium is an ensemble of essential elements, including the stand, circulation cores, the structure, and functional spaces, each of which have been designed to maximize performance. Specifically, the three-tier stand increases the stadium’s capacity to 63,000, while placing spectators as close to the field as possible for an intimate match experience. The bowl-shaped steel structure, a diagrid that requires less structural steel than a conventional steel frame, is the primary structure supporting the stand and its roof.

The new venue is a truly open stadium with an public concourse on the main entry level. Designed in collaboration with LOLA, this concourse is not fenced off but opens to public. Equipped with daily open F&B offerings, fountains, and greeneries, it is a space for football fans and the public to gather on match days, and for everyone to use for leisure activities when there are no events.

Gebiedsontwikkeling aan de Maas, the Municipality of Rotterdam, Stadium Feijenoord, and multiple other stakeholders. The masterplan was adopted by the Rotterdam City Council in October 2019. OMA has submitted the building permit and finalised detailed design for the Feyenoord Stadium this summer. Over the past months, the design has been further optimised to ensure on time and cost-effective delivery, while reinforcing its integrity as a vital iconic building within the Feyenoord City masterplan. Construction of the stadium is scheduled to begin in 2022, with the building’s completion in 2025. The project is led by OMA Managing Partner – Architect David Gianotten, with Associate Kees van Casteren and Project Architect Shinji Takagi and Sandra Bsat
