Inspired by the region’s history of brewing and steel manufacturing, the stadium’s self-supported tripodal structure is sculptural. The structure is surrounded by metallic armature cladding and aluminum, paying tribute to the steels mills that once thrived in the city.

The silhouette of brewing stills influenced the asymmetrical shape of the stadium that lowers to the south framing the famous Cerro de la Silla Mountain.

The stadium’s design incorporates the most significant premium experience in any soccer stadium across the globe, with neighborhood seating spaces designed to accommodate the more hospitality-driven fan.
