The GelreDome is a stadium with a retractable pitch and roof that has been pioneers in its multifunctional abilities.

History and description

The GelreDome was built to serve as a multipurpose stadium that is suited for sports, concerts and other events. It was the first football stadium in the world to have a retractable pitch, and, after the Amsterdam ArenA, the second stadium in Europe to have a sliding roof. The former Vitesse chairman Karel Aalbers came up with the idea of building a multifunctional stadium with more than double the capacity of Vitesse's old Nieuw Monnikenhuizen stadium.

The ambitious chairman had been playing with the idea from as early as the late 1980s. But it took until 1996 and the prospect of the upcoming Euro 2000 championships for construction to finally begin.

The GelreDome was the first all-seater stadium in the Netherlands and it hosted the Dutch Cup Final in 2002. The GelreDome opened on 25 March 1998 with a league match between Vitesse and NAC Breda (4-1). It was the first all-seater stadium in the Netherlands, and it hosted the Dutch Cup Final in 2002.

During the Euro 2000 tournament, the stadium hosted three group matches.

The GelreDome ultimately led to the downfall of chairman Karel Aalbers as the financial obligations were more than the club could endure. The chairman was removed from his post and in subsequent years the club had to be financially assisted by the city of Arnhem in order to survive.

The GelreDome has been a popular concert venue in the last decade, and it is praised for its acoustics, climate control system, and roof that does not let in any sunlight.

How to get to GelreDome

The GelreDome is located in the south of the city of Arnhem on the south bank of the river Rhine. It is about 2.5 kilometres from Arnhem's city centre and the central rail station. On matchdays, shuttle buses run between Arnhem's railway station and the stadium. The journey takes no more than 5 minutes.

You can either walk or take the tram to the stadium.

Address: Batavierenweg 25, 6841 HN Arnhem

Eat, drink, and sleep near the GelreDome

The GelreDome is located in a residential area with few places to eat and drink, which means that you can better do this in the nearby and rather pleasant city center of Arnhem. There are no hotels near the GelreDome, but a few options in Arnhem's city centre. You can, of course, also stay in the west of The Netherlands and catch a train back after the match.

Vitesse Tickets

Tickets for Vitesse games can be bought online, at the football club shop at the stadium, or at the box office. To purchase tickets for Vitesse matches, you must possess a Vitesse Fancard. The majority of matches go on general sale, but some may be available only through special promotions.

If tickets remain available, and Vitesse hardly ever sell out a match, they can be bought on the day of the match at the stadium. However, the same Fancard requirement may apply.

ticket prices depend on the opponent, but typically range from $19.00 for a seat behind the goal to $55.00 for a central seat at the main stand. Prices get increased by $4.00-$10.00 for a few high-profile matches.

You can find a seating map here. For more information, call +31 (0) 26 880 7337 or email the fanservice at Vitesse.nl.
