New lighting for Belgium’s oldest football club

Royal Antwerp FC’s old stand was demolished and replaced by a new, modern infrastructure with seats for 5,600 spectators. In this project, ENGIE Fabricom took care of the electrical installations, including lighting.

A new football experience

Things had remained unchanged for a long time at the Bosuil stadium, home to the football club Royal Antwerp FC. Apart from a few minor renovations, hardly anything had been spent on the stadium of Belgium’s oldest football club for decades. The new Tribune 1 has made match days much more enjoyable for spectators, and allowed the club to rise to a different level.

Every detail in the new 16,600 m² complex was looked at carefully, and now boasts every facility necessary: changing rooms for players and referees, a media centre for the press, emergency services, multipurpose halls, 18 boxes, VIP rooms, etc.

Antwerp FC now has a whole new appearance, and offers excellent conditions for receiving supporters and partners from the Antwerp business world.
