Floodlight disaster at the ADO stadium

This morning, staff arrived at the Kyocera stadium to discover the floodlight in the corner of the stadium above Vak D had partially collapsed.

Early inspection has discovered that the floodlight light had suffered from serious weather induced metal fatigue. Now the other three floodlights are to be inspected for signs of fatigue. If found to be in danger of collapse, ADO’s final three home games may have to be played in another stadium. The likely venue would be the home of Sparta Rotterdam. We keep our fingers crossed that the one floodlight can be repaired/replaced before the game against FC Utrecht. If the others are not safe, this will not be played in the Kyocera.
