History and description
Ramat Gan Stadium is the national stadium of Israel and as such hosts the matches of the Israel national team. The stadium was built in 1950 to serve as the new national stadium of Israel and as the host venue of the 3rd Maccabiah games.
The stadium underwent a major redevelopment in 1982 during which a new West Stand was constructed.
Further small improvements were made in the 2000s but the stadium has not been able to keep up with the standards of modern stadiums and therefore plans were made to rebuild a new stadium with a capacity 0f 55,000 seats in its place. However, little progress was made and at the moment plans are still uncertain to get realised.
