Beersheba cuts the ribbon on Israel’s newest soccer stadium

Beersheba had played at Vasermil since 1959, but the club has been yearning to leave the outdated venue for many years and the successes of recent seasons only further stressed the need for a modern complex.

Turner Stadium, named after former Beersheba mayor Ya’akov Turner, is exactly that, with over NIS 200 million being spent on the construction of the venue, which can seat just over 16,000 fans.

The club sold a record of over 12,000 season tickets in anticipation of the opening of the new stadium and many of those supporters were in attendance on Wednesday. They will get their first chance to see the team playing in a match at Turner when Beersheba hosts Maccabi Haifa in Premier League action on Monday.
