As part of a programme of the Italian Lega Nazionale Professionisti Serie B (B Futura) to support their member clubs in the upgrading of their stadium infrastructure, The Stadium Consultancy was contracted to develop the plans for the new Stadio San Vito of Cosenza Calcio.
The objective of the project is to develop a stadium of minimum 11,000 capacity – with expansion possibilities to 16,000 seats – on the site of the existing 24,000 capacity stadium. The new stadium will be a modern football-only stadium with improved ambience and fan experience by removing the athletics track.
Adjacent to the stadium, a new academy of the club will be developed. In addition, it is proposed to add approx. 14,000 sqm of commercial area to the stadium programme.
The Stadium Consultancy is responsible for preparing:
- the overall project plan;
- the financial feasibility study;
- the programme of requirements (employers’ requirements);
- the concept design for the new stadium;
- the site masterplan.
