The stadium

The stadium was built by a consortium of Ballast Nedam, Royal BAM Group and VolkerWessels and completed in 2006.


The Euroborg is easy to reach by public transport, as the train station Groningen Europapark, located 200 meters from the stadium, is served every hour by a number of trains (coming from and going to Groningen Central) and buses. There are also a number of car parks (marked as P1, P2, etc.) in the surrounding area.

UEFA U21 Championships 2007

The Euroborg was also one of four venues for the UEFA U21 Championships 2007, which the Netherlands hosted. It was host to all group matches of Portugal and the final between the Netherlands and Serbia.

There are plans to expand the stadium to a capacity of 30- or 40,000.

Besides the nickname de Groene Hel (the Green Hell) it also is called de Groene Kathedraal (the Green Cathedral).
