The Konya Büyükşehir Belediye Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Konya, Turkey. It is primarily used for football matches with Konyaspor being the main tenants. It is part of complex of sports venues that are planned on the outskirts of the city, as part of the Konya Olympic Village. It replaced the aging Konya Atatürk Stadium, which has been in use since the early 1950s. The stadium has a capacity of nearly 42.276 people (all-seated) and is totally covered.The stadium is located in Selçuklu, the main district of Konya.DetailsThe stadium meets all requirements of UEFA and will be a part of an ensemble with a brand new multi-sport hall, an athletic stadium, a velodrome and different multi sports areas. The stadium and the Sports Park are located on a 40 hectare spot 8 km in the north of the city center, projected by the authorities as a sports and recreation area and surrounded by a new residential area that is still under construction.The design of the new stadium is a tribute to the Konya region, its history, its traditions and its locals. It portrays an allegory of the dance of the whirling dervishes and also Konya’s reputation as a “Cycling City”. While the undulation of the round shaped tribunes are transforming the dance of the dervishes into a new dimension, the roof is designed as a “Spoke Wheel”. Especially during evening events the combination of these elements create an inimitable sign symbolizing the city of Konya.The semi transparent screen façade renders the characteristic conic shape and allows laser shows and the projection of images from outside and the inside as well.
