The GelreDome is a football stadium in the city of Arnhem, Netherlands. It serves as the home of the football club Vitesse Arnhem. It was opened on 25 March 1998, featuring a retractable roof, as well as a convertible pitch, that can be retracted, when unused during concerts or other events held at the stadium, and a climate control system. It has a maximum capacity of 34,000 people for sports events, or 41,000 during concerts. It was also one of the venues for the Euro 2000 tournament held in the Netherlands and Belgium. It replaced the Nieuw Monnikenhuize.
The GelreDome hosted its second UEFA Champions League game on August 13, 2008, between FC Twente and Arsenal, as Vitesse are loaning Twente the stadium for this match, due to expansion work being done on Twente's home stadium, De Grolsch Veste. In 2001, PSV Eindhoven played a Champions League game in the GelreDome, as part of the UEFA sanction, after the riots in the game against 1. FC Kaiserslautern the season before. Another Champions League game at the GelreDome took place on 26 July 2011 when FC Twente used it as a home venue for the first leg of their third qualifying round tie against FC Vaslui, after a roof collapse at De Grolsch Veste, in which two workers were killed.
