Spanish LaLiga football club Sevilla is leaning towards a renovation of its Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium that would increase the famous facility’s capacity to 55,000, according to reports in the country.
Sevilla is reported to be favouring the plans put forward by engineering, design and consultancy firm IDOM to add more than 10,000 seats to the stadium’s current capacity as it considers future plans for the venue, which opened in 1958.
A report by Relevo stated that Sevilla has opted to study IDOM’s proposal closely before sending back suggested revisions as soon as possible.
A separate plan put forward by Legends is also reportedly on the table to expand the current capacity by about 1,200 seats whilst enhancing the venue’s hospitality offering.
The club’s vice-president, José María del Nido Carrasco, recently said that building work could begin in July 2026, although there is thought to be a push to accelerate redevelopment plans.
The 42,700-capacity stadium, which hosted the 2022 UEFA Europa League final between Eintracht Frankfurt and Rangers, is staging the inaugural Club Challenge between the winners of Europe’s UEFA Europa League and South America’s CONMEBOL Sudamericana tonight (Wednesday).
Earlier this year, IDOM drew up renovation plans for the home of Spanish Segunda Division football club Real Zaragoza.
