Ecuador to get new national stadium

Ecuador to get new national stadium

Thursday 16th January 2020

Ecuador are to build a new national football stadium.

The current Estadio Olimpico Atahualpa is to be demolished and replaced by a brand new stadium with a capacity of around 50,000-60,000.

As well as hosting national matches, the current 36,000 capacity venue is also home to Serie A sides El Nacional and Universidad Catolica.

The new stadium will also feature a convention centre and museum as well as parking for up to 10,000 vehicles. The project is expected to cost around £150m.
