Stadion Feijenoord, more commonly known by its nickname De Kuip (Dutch pronunciation: [də ˈkœy̯p]) (the Tub), is a stadium in Rotterdam, Netherlands that was completed in 1937. The name is derived from the area "Feijenoord" in Rotterdam, and from the club with the same name (although the club's name was internationalised to Feyenoord in 1973). The stadium's original capacity was 64,000. In 1949 it was expanded to 69,000, and in 1994 it was renovated again for a capacity of 51,117. In 1999, a significant amount of restoration and interior work took place at the stadium prior to its use as a venue in the Euro 2000 tournament, although capacity was largely unaffected.
