Description

The Stadion Oosterpark was the home of FC Groningen until 2006, when the club moved to Stadion Euroborg. In 1933, the first sports played at the site of Stadion Oosterpark were football and field hockey. The football pitch did not have any stands and its own changing facilities were not available.

In 1935, a modest stand with about 500 seats was built. A few years later, earth banks were laid around the pitch so that more people could witness the games.

In 1948, the stadium's capacity was increased with three concrete terraces. A few years later, a new covered seating stand was constructed.

In the 1950s, various clubs from the city of Groningen used the stadium, most notably the Oosterparkers and GVAV. With the successes of the latter, more money became available to improve the stadium and increase capacity.

The stadium's current shape was first established in the 1960s with the construction of two covered seating stands behind each goal. This has since brought its capacity up to about 18,000.

This has since been renovated twice, most recently in 2014. In 1971, FC Groningen merged with various other clubs from the city to form the new club. The club became the regular occupant of the Oosterpark and made few changes until in the mid 1980s a new south stand was built. This has since been renovated twice - most recently in 2014.

At the end of the 1980s, the official capacity was 22,000. However, this was never met due to security requirements. The official record attendance was therefore set at 19,500, achieved during a UEFA Cup match against Swiss side Servette in 1988.

The last changes to the stadium were made in the late 1980s when a new main stand was built. However, the old stadium still hardly met basic requirements and when in the 1990s many Dutch clubs started building new stadiums, the club felt the need to move too.

Plans were made for a new stadium in the south of the city. As the club did not feel like investing much in the old stadium, standing sections were closed instead of converted into seats. Wooden puppets were put in the standing sections to make the stadium look less empty.

However, when the club got promoted again to the Dutch Eredivisie in 2001 and the realization of the new stadium suffered various delays, seats were installed anyways which caused capacity to go down to 12,500 seats.

FC Groningen played its final match at the Oosterpark on December 22nd, 2005. The cup match against Volendam ended in a 3-0 win for the home side. One month later, FC Groningen moved into the new Stadion Euroborg. The Oosterpark was subsequently demolished and replaced by housing.
