Sevilla to expand Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan to 60,000

Sunday 7th July 2019

Spanish side Sevilla have announced plans to expand its Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium from 44,000 to 60,000 capacity.

This will be done by adding a third tier to the existing stands which will make the stadium the 5th biggest in Spain - and put it on a par with local rivals Real Betis’ Benito Villamarin.

Sevilla’s average attendance last season was just over 36,000 however more than half of their home matches sold out.

The club are in the very early planning stages with no artists’ impressions available yet. There’s no timescale for when the world will be completed, but construction will be difficult due to tight working area around the stadium and the fact that the club plans to build whilst still playing games there.

Interesting fact about the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan: the Spanish national side have never lost there. In 25 games, they’ve won 20 and drawn 5.
