Since 1937 the Feijenoord stadium in Rotterdam is home to the Feyenoord soccer team. The architecture is by architect Leendert van der Vlugt.
After the renovation in 1994 the Feijenoord stadium in Rotterdam acquired several changes. The roof nowadays covers 85% of the soccer temple which results in 40.000 indoor seats. The 3 meters deep ditch replaces the fences once around the grass field. With 51.117 seats around the 105×68 meters field the stadium also goes around as the Kuip (Tub). That is because of the tubby shape.
Also the existing steel- and concrete construction, tribune, stairs and sanitary facilities were part of the renovation and larger now. All these changes make the De Kuip in turn a more modern and safer stadium. Even the players, staff and press members have newer and better accommodations.
An other addition because of the renovation is the Maasgebouw next to the stadium. This 2-floor building fits in with a restaurant, the Feyenoord Museum, office space and 7 conference rooms. Within the Maasgebouw are 40 business units for business relationships.
A different kind of temple in the area is the beautiful Essalam mosque. Before you visit the Feijenoord stadium in Rotterdam know that the Feyenoord soccer team exists since 1907. Here is the location!
