Euroborg

Euroborg (Dutch pronunciation: ) is the stadium of football club FC Groningen, with a capacity of 22,329 seats. Located to the south-east of Groningen, the Euroborg site houses a casino and a movie theatre, a school, a supermarket and a fitness centre. A temporary railway station at the Euroborg has opened in late 2007. A permanent one is slated to open in 2010. The stadium seats are completely in the club's colours: green and white. 1000 seats are available for the supporters of the away team.

The stadium

The stadium was built by a consortium of Ballast Nedam, Royal BAM Group and VolkerWessels and completed in 2006.

UEFA U21 Championships 2007

The Euroborg was also one of four venues for the UEFA U21 Championships 2007 which The Netherlands hosted. It was host to all group matches of Portugal and the final between The Netherlands and Serbia.

There are plans to expand the stadium to a capacity of 30- or 40,000.

Besides the nickname de Groene Hel (the Green Hell) it also is called de Groene Kathedraal (the Green Cathedral).
