PEC Zwolle is the MAC3PARK Stadium next summer to expand from 13.250 to veerienduizend places, as the club announced on Thursday. The cup winner of 2014 wants to the stadium this atmospheric.

A previously added stand to the long side behind one of the goals set, allowing the stand to the long side is completely developed.

“The so-called Stentor-tribune which is now still on the long side, for the Klaas Drost-tribune. We want a kind of ‘small Cockpit’ go create, where supporters very close to the field”, refers PEC-president Adriaan Visser, the stadium of Feyenoord.

“By the rising number of spectators in recent seasons, resulted in the need for the MAC3PARK Stadium even further. More and more people from the region of Zwolle to know the club, so the current capacity is no longer sufficient.”
