Netanya StadiumEdit profile
The Netanya Stadium (Hebrew: איצטדיון נתניה, Itztadion Netanya) is a new multi-use stadium currently being built in Netanya by the city council. Financing of the new stadium is to come from the sale of land where the old Sar-Tov Stadium stands today. Upon completion of the new stadium, Sar-Tov will be demolished and the land will be used for a housing project. Current Sar-Tov tenants, Maccabi Netanya, will move to the new ground.Planning
On 30 September 2003 Minister of Internal Affairs, Avraham Poraz, approved the plan to build the stadium in an area called Birkat Hanoun. The plan was for a 24,000-seat stadium, consisting of four separate stands. The first two stands under construction will be the main east and west grandstands. It will house 36 private boxes, a VIP section and the press areas. This will be followed by construction of the remaining stands, along with training grounds.
Spread out over 163 dunams (16.3 hectares), the entire complex will be connected by train and have a parking lot for around 1,000 cars. the Architects of the stadium are GAB (goldschmidt Arditty Ben Nayin) architects one of Israel's leading sport architecture firm based in Jerusalem. Construction is being managed by the Netanya Development Company, who handled planning of the project for three years before construction.
