Luxembourg’s national stadium to open in 2019

Luxembourg has revealed more details of its new national football and rugby stadium which is set to open in October 2019.

Luxembourg city mayor Lydie Polfer unveiled detailed plans for the 9,385 seat stadium which will be built in the Cloche d’Or district of the municipality.

Preliminary work on the site is expected to get underway in May 2017 with main construction to begin in September next year.

The stadium will have hybrid turf pitch with a state-of-the-art drainage system.

The pitch was chosen to provide a good, durable playing surface for both rugby and football.

The stadium will also host concerts, when the capacity will be raised to 15,000.

There will be a roof over the spectator area, and the build will incorporate VIP areas, kiosks, a business club, press rooms and a television studio.

The stadium is expected to cost €60m to build with most of the costs being covered by the Ministry of Sport.

Polfer said:

We have worked hand in hand with the Ministry of Sports and the football and rugby federations. I would like to thank all the players involved in this project which will be designed by Gerkan Marg + Partner and BENG architects.
