History and description
Rat Verlegh Stadion replaced the old NAC-Stadion located at the Beatrixstraat. Construction of the new stadium started in 2005, and it officially opened on 11 August 1996 with a friendly match between NAC and Brazilian side Grêmio (0-0).
In its first decade, Rat Verlegh Stadion went by several sponsor names, but in 2006 the club decided to adopt the name of Rat Verlegh, player of the club between 1912 and 1931, and a popular icon among the club’s fans.
Initial capacity was slightly lower with just over 17,000 seats, but a few minor renovations and the introduction of a small number of standing places have raised it to the current 19,000.
