lovely little ground set in a park, yet again, another classic old ground, so different from the warehouses that are springing up these days! close to the action and atmospheric, luckily we also saw a good game which could have been 5-5 but ended 1-0

Always a great atmosphere, especially on the short side opposite to the away supporters (i.e. K through O). Must visit if you go to Nijmegen and NEC is playing!

As a seasoncard holder I am of course biased but if you're around come and cheer for NEC. Atmosphere is always great and there are a lot of facilities to make your stay even more pleasant.

This cosy little stadium (capacity 12.500) is situated in the scenic Goffert Park and is the home of NEC Nijmegen. Excellent and modern facilities, friendly staff (they all speak English as well) Wherever you sit you have a good view of the pitch. Easily reachable by public transport.

The McDos Goffert Stadium ("stadion" in Dutch) is a little football/soccer arena with a capacity of 1.200 seats. It's almost only used by football club NEC, so there are not many events to visit the stadium. I can only imagine that it is a thing to do for groundhoppers. But why not visit the Goffert Park around it, with its... More

The Goffert Stadium is the home of the Dutch soccer club NEC. It is small and not very attractive for those of us who have seen more than one soccer stadium. I am sure it must be nice for the local fans, but if you are realistic this is not a tourist attraction unless you are really bored. You will... More
