New €60m stadium for Sporting Charleroi

Sporting Charleroi reveal plans for new stadium

Saturday 12th October 2019

Belgian top flight side Sporting Charleroi have revealed plans to build a new stadium.

The club have played at the Stade du Pays since 1939 but are to move to the new stadium as part of the local council's plans to regenerate an area of former steelworks and mining grounds to the west of the city. The new ground will be around 3.5 miles away from the Stade du Pays.

The old ground was one of four in Belgium to co-host Euro 2000 with the Netherlands, when the capacity was expanded to 30,000. After the tournament, capacity was reduced to 15,000.

The new stadium will have a capacity in the region of 20,000-25,000, substantially larger than last season's average attendance of 8,300.

The new stadium has an estimated cost of €60m. No opening date has yet been announced.
