Suprastadio - DDV Stadium

Dresden will be home to world’s first Suprastadio, with expansion plans of DDV Stadium employing the radical design concept introduced by the German architectural firm Interpol. Contractor BAM Sports GmbH, which has teamed up with the brains behind Suprastadio, will build the first grandstand using the new concept at the DDV Stadium.

Suprastadio translates into an entirely different way of building a stadium that really does break the mold. The designers have come up with a unique way to seat spectators that is more compact and efficient. If one were to look at the Suprastadio from a cross-section perspective, the shape of the stands would very closely resemble that of a vast wave, wrapping the field of play.

The first feasibility study of DDV Stadium’s expansion plans, prepared by BAM, includes the key highlights of Suprastadio. As per the new design, the most important fact is – the ability of the stadium to be extended by over 13,000 additional seats, 13,709 to be precise.

This will be done using new levels on three sides and creation of 20 new boxes, additional VIP are and will include the relocation of the team and press pavilions. The expansion will cost around €25mn.

An increase of 20 seat rows is planned. In the K-Block, there would be 4,708 standing places. The regular seating for Dynamo fans would increase by 6,164 seats. 600 new seats are planned in the VIP area. In the guest block 2,237 standing places could arise.

It is believed that the new Suprastadio design enhances the experience of fans at it makes the stadium more compact – the distance from the terraces to the pitch is cut drastically, so much so that the seats at the very top may be just as sought after as the seats lower down.

According to the feasibility study, the grandstands are extended to the south, west and north. The glass front towards Lenné Street will not be touched. The planning is so detailed that the expected shading of the stadium in the direction of Arnhold-Bad was investigated. This could be the increase in the curves (left) and the long sides of the grandstand (right).

The new grandstands would not be placed behind the ranks, but would be staged as a second rank slightly forward in the direction of Spielfeld.
