Tata Steel leads the line up in stadium development
AZ football team from Alkmaar in the Netherlands are instantly recognisable with their red and black team colours – and now they have a stadium to match thanks to the innovative use of Colorcoat Prisma®.
The €38m purpose-built AFAS Stadion, by Zwarts & Jansma Architects, is certainly eye-catching. Panels of red and black Colorcoat Prisma® are streaked across the 25 metre-high exterior, whilst inside the stadium’s stand design means home and away fans get a clear view of the action no matter where they sit, with its 17,000 seats close to the pitch and focused on the centre spot for the ultimate match experience.
AZ Football team is top of the league with new stadium
The new state-of-the-art stadium is certainly a big promotion for the Eredivisie League club from its previous home, the Alkmaaderhout, which only had capacity for around 9,000 fans. Although primarily the home of AZ, AFAS Stadium – named after the club’s sponsor – is multipurpose and is used to host various events.
