The construction of the stadium is an important step in realizing the vision of the
Mayor, Mrs. Miriam Fierberg-Ikar, who has been working at turning Netanya into
the Sharon's metropolis, promoting and developing sports in the city, along with an
active and diverse cultural and leisure life.
Netanya Stadium area is about 60 acres, with approximately 6000 square meters
intended for trade and employment.
The stadium includes in its first stage, about 13,610 seats (at its final stage about 24
000 seats) in two main tribunes.
The stadium has 17 fancy viewing booths and 17 spacious cafeterias serving the
public with maximum comfort.
In addition, the stadium is designed to be a center of leisure, culture and events
receiving thousands of spectators and offering a cultural and social experience.
Technologically – it's considered the most advanced stadium in Israel and among the
most advanced in Europe.
A sophisticated command room controls the game through the command and control
system, which includes dozens of cameras placed in the stadium, advanced warning
and control systems and an electronic scoreboard 80 square meters of size.
Netanya Stadium and the complex around are part of the urban fabric of East
Netanya, which includes already hi – tech industry, an academic campus and high-
level residential complexes.
