The Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport of the Regional Government of Andalusia (Spain), Arturo Bernal, has unveiled ambitious plans of transforming the Estadio La Cartuja de Sevilla in Seville, Spain, into one of the most state-of-the-art stadiums in the world and subsequently bestowing on it the tag of the national stadium of Spain.

‘canalsur.es’ stated that Bernal announced that a 360-degree change will be brought about in the above facility and it will be made a venue sans athletics tracks.

The 60,000-capacity Estadio La Cartuja, officially known as the Estadio La Cartuja de Sevilla, is a multipurpose stadium situated in the Isla de la Cartuja in Seville, Spain. It is used mostly for football and the facility is mostly referred to as simply ‘La Cartuja’.

Seville is the capital of Andalusia, a region in the South of Spain.

Bernal informed that while going for the total repurposing of the stadium they will take pages out of the 90,000-capacity Wembley Stadium in Wembley (UK) or the 80,000-capacity Stade de France in Saint-Denis, France.

‘canalsur.es’ further stated that Bernal has announced a capital injection of 20 million euros to expand the capacity of the arena to 75,000 seats keeping in mind the fact that the 2030 World Cup will be hosted jointly by Spain, Morocco and Portugal.

The 2030 FIFA World Cup™ will be the 24th FIFA World Cup™, a quadrennial international football tournament contested by the men’s national teams of the member-associations of FIFA. The 2030 World Cup will mark the centennial World Cup competition. For the first time, three countries from two continents will host the competition, with Spain, Portugal and Morocco as the host nations. Additionally, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay will serve as nations that open the event as a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the first World Cup in Uruguay. This will be the first World Cup held in Africa since 2010, in South America since 2014, as well as in Europe since 2018.

The Minister further informed that “five million euros have already been pumped in for sprucing up the venue. The demolition work of the venue price tag stands at circa 40 million euros and the rebuilding work has been pegged at more than 200 million euros.”

Bernal concluded by stating that the objective is to “no longer rebuild the stadium as a soccer-specific venue but to make it a multipurpose facility staging various sporting events and added attractions on offer for the fans so that they can enjoy to the hilt while they are in the venue.”
