The Parkstad Limburg Stadion is a football stadium in Kerkrade, Netherlands, which opened in August 2000. With a capacity of 19,979 seats, 2,500 business seats, and 24 skyboxes, the PLS is primarily known as the home stadium of football club Roda JC, but it is also used for events such as the World Music Contest and car shows.
The Noordtribune is the main stand of the stadium, with all skyboxes and VIP lounges located there. On the Oost Tribune, the away team’s seating area is located, with 1,100 seats, one of the largest in the Netherlands. On the Zuidtribune, which was named the Theo Pickeé-tribune after the death of former Roda JC chairman Theo Pickeé in 2003, family seating areas are located in the corners. And on the Westtribune, which was named the Koempel-tribune after the team’s relegation in the 2013-14 season due to the strong support of the fans, the passionate supporters of Roda JC are located.
The Parkstad Limburg Stadion has an addition to each stand. In the addition of the Noordtribune are the conference rooms, fan shop, and the locker rooms of Roda JC. On the Oosttribune, the Music Dome and an Albert Heijn XL are located. On the Westtribune, Wiertz Company and Basic-Fit are located. At the South Tribune, a hotel was built, which was supposed to be finished in August 2008. So eight years after the construction of the stadium, all stands have an addition.
The hotel, located on the south side of the stadium, finally opened its doors in March 2010 as the Golden Tulip Hotel. As of April 1, 2019, this hotel was taken over by Fletcher Hotels. The Albert Heijn XL opened in September 2014.
