July 5 – LaLiga’s Sevilla have announced plans to expand their Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium.
The club’s president José Castro and general director José María Cruz confirmed that the club have expansion plans for their ground by adding a third tier to their current 43,000 all-seater home. Castro said that Sevilla “have to adapt the stadium to modern times.”
Last season Sevilla enjoyed average attendances of 36,050 fans, making them the 7th best attended club in Spain. FC Barcelona top the attendances charts with an average of 75,208 followed by Real Madrid in second place with 60,967.
Sevilla’s ground opened in 1958, but Cruz emphasized that while the club is keen on expanding a number of obstacles will have to be cleared before the construction plans can be enacted.
Sevilla also announced that they will invest €25 million to further develop their training complex. In the off-season the club has secured a €10 million shirt sponsorship deal with online bookmaker Marathonbet and launched their own club shop on Amazon.
