History and description

The AFAS Stadion was built to provide AZ Alkmaar with a modern stadium to replace their old Alkmaarderhout stadium. The stadium opened on the fourth of August 2006 with a friendly match between AZ and Arsenal (0-3). Until 2009, AFAS Stadion was known as DSB Stadion after the company of then-owner Dirk Scheringa. However, after the bankruptcy of DSB the name got changed into AZ Stadion and later named after the club's new main sponsor.

Following the completion of the stadium, plans were made to expand it with a second tier to a capacity of 30,000 or 40,000 seats. However, after the bankruptcy of DSB no funding could be acquired and plans were abandoned.

In August 2019, during a storm, part of the roof of the stadium collapsed. No one got hurt, but significant design faults were discovered and the roof had to be reconstructed. AZ temporarily moved out to the Cars Jeans Stadion in The Hague before moving back into a roofless stadium in December 2019.

Construction of the new roof was completed in 2021. The Arizona athletic department took advantage of the works to add a few extra rows of seating to increase capacity from 17,000 to 19,500 seats. There are tentative plans to further increase capacity to 23,000 seats in the future.

How to get to AFAS Stadion

The stadium has a capacity of 26,000 and is the home ground of FC Alkmaar. The AFAS Stadion stands on the southern edge of Alkmaar, just over 2 kilometers from the city center. It has a capacity of 26,000 and is the home ground of FC Alkmaar. The stadium is located right next to the A9 motorway exit Ring Alkmaar/Heilo/Den Helder. To find it, take exit Ring Alkmaar/Heilo/Den Helder, and the stadium will be signposted with a football symbol.

The walk from the city centre of Alkmaar to the main rail station can be made in about 30 minutes, though the rail station is located further away. From the station, one can take bus 163 in the direction of Uitgeest. The bus ride takes less than 15 minutes.

On matchdays free shuttle buses go from the station to the stadium.

Address: Stadionweg 1, 1812 AZ Alkmaar

Eat, drink, and sleep near AFAS Stadion

The AFAS Stadion is located on the edge of the city, with a quiet residential neighbourhood bordering one side, a motorway bordering the other, and farmlands as far as the eye can see beyond. Apart from a Chinese restaurant, there is little around in terms of eating and drinking, which is better done in Alkmaar's city centre. Alternatively, there is the Holiday Inn Express Alkmaar which is located a few kilometres away from the stadium.
