Spanish soccer side Sevilla FC has revealed that it plans to increase seating capacity at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán by 4,382 seats as part of a €1.28m (US$1.5m) redevelopment of the stadium’s lower tier.
The upgrade will see capacity grow to 47,096, which includes a boost in the number of disabled seats from 52 to 268. As part of the project the club will also be improving overall safety at the venue thanks to the introduction of folding seats and increasing the number of doors and corridors within the stadium.
The stadium, which was built in 1958, once boasted a capacity of 70,000 however after several refurbishments throughout its history this number has been significantly lowered, particularly when it was converted to an all-seater venue in the 1990s.
The venue’s most recent modernization was completed back in 2016 when new seats and a new façade were added.
