Construction work on the roof of AFAS Stadium in Alkmaar, Netherlands, has caught up full momentum.

‘AZ Alkmaar’ stated that the video walls are back in place and there are more and more roof plates on the crane frames.

The 17,023-capacity AFAS Stadion is a stadium in Alkmaar, Netherlands. It is used for football matches and is the home stadium of AZ Alkmaar.

AZ Alkmaar is a Dutch professional football club from Alkmaar and the Zaanstreek. The club plays in the Eredivisie, the highest professional football league in the Netherlands, and hosts home matches at the 17,023-capacity AFAS Stadion.

The new roof work has been necessitated following the old roof collapsing in August 2019 due to very strong winds. The old canopy collapsed onto the stands. Today, almost the entire old roof is gone, with work almost at the wrapping up stage.
