AFL working on bid and designing 92,000-capacity stadium in Istanbul
AFL Architects is behind plans to transform Istanbul’s old Olympic stadium as part of Turkey’s bid to host the 2024 Euros.
The UK architect, which is working with Foster & Partners on the main stadium for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, has come up with a new-look 92,000-capacity Ataturk stadium featuring a new lower tier with concourses and player facilities built inside the existing structure.
The stadium, which has an existing capacity of 76,000, was completed in 2002 and was built as part of Turkey’s failed bid for the 2008 Olympic Games. It hosted the 2005 Champions League final between Liverpool and AC Milan.
