Today the club have released plans to build a new 15,000 seat stadium in the west side of the city behind the WTC hotel. The plans will cost around €25 million, and Cambuur hope that their new stadium will be built in 2016.

Chairman of the supervisory board of Cambuur, Ype Smith told Leeuwarden Courant, “The plan has two pillars: sustainability in relation to the energy issue and development of commercial spaces, this is not a pipe dream, but well thought out.”

Cambuur are in their first year back in the Eredivisie, and currently sit 14th. Plans for a new stadium clearly show the club to have big ambitions.
