Osasuna stadium set for revamp

Spanish Segunda División football club Osasuna has detailed plans to upgrade its El Sadar Stadium after fans voted in favour of a complete renovation project for the venue.

The club announced yesterday (Sunday) that 8,409 fans participated in a vote on El Sadar’s future, with some 90.37 per cent opting for a “comprehensive reform” of the stadium, which has a current capacity of 19,800.

Fans were also asked which specific project they would like the club to carry out and the ‘Muro Roja’ (Red Wall) proposal proved the most popular with 45.3 per cent of votes.

The project with the second-highest percentage was El Nuevo Sadar with 20.43 per cent. The Sadar Berria, Rojo Azul and Fortaleza Rojilla projects were also options but did not prove as popular among supporters.

Club president Luis Sabalza said that the club will have the stadium “we all want” by 2020. The work is expected to cost €16m (£13.9m/$18.1m) plus VAT and Osasuna will work with construction company VDR and OFS Architects on the project.

Osasuna was relegated from the top-tier LaLiga in 2017 but currently sits first in the 2018-19 Segunda División table.
