Project description of Football Stadium PC Bate Borisov by OFIS:
The stadium is going on site at the end of 2010 since opening is planned for 2012, when the City of Borisov celebrates a significant anniversary. Distribution of the program takes into account the natural advantages of location and existing interventions in the terrain and the fact that the stadium has 13.000 seats, has to obtain 4stars according to UEFA categorization and have additional 3.000m2 of public program. The stadium with external arrangements has to provide quality traffic organization and controlled / separate access during the match and in everyday use. Position also maintains the most of existing trees on the site. The final aspect of the complex is a recognizable image of the dominant facility, placed in soft greenery.

Project description of Stadium Euroborg by Wiel Arets Architects:
The multifunctional Euroborg stadium is a catalyst for a multiplicity of amenities that do not compete with the facilities in the city centre, but reinforce Groningen’s key position in the north of Holland. The complex houses theatres, sports facilities, shops, offices, apartments and catering establishments, in a synergy that benefits both users and facility managers. Rather than a conventional stadium with a football pitch, Euroborg will be a sort of microcosm where social interaction and social control go hand in hand. The stadium itself is an empty space constructed under architecture, with capacity for 22,500 spectators. It can be adjusted to reflect its use, which can be related to the activities of the entire complex.
