The Kuip

Many people don’t know that Feyenoord’s stadium is officially named Stadion Feijenoord. However, the stadium is commonly known as the Kuip. Feyenoord plays all of its home matches in the stadium and the national team also makes use of the Kuip.

The Kuip’s history

The Kuip was opened in 1937 and Feyenoord was established in 1908. This means that the club played elsewhere first. They played on several pitches in Rotterdam until they found a stadium in 1917. The idea of building the Kuip was already created in the thirties of the twentieth century, but many preparations were needed before the construction of the stadium could start. The architecture of the Kuip is impressive and certainly worth to look at!
