Kyocera Stadion (Dutch pronunciation: ) is a multi-use stadium in The Hague, the Netherlands, designed by Zwarts & Jansma Architects. Completed in 2007, the stadium is used mostly for football and field hockey. It is also the home stadium of ADO Den Haag. It has a capacity of 15,000 people, and replaced ADO's former stadium Zuiderpark which was considerably smaller. Despite being one of the three largest cities in the Netherlands, the clubs attendances have been traditionally smaller than their rivals Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV Eindhoven. It was the venue for the 2014 Hockey World Cup.

Opening

The opening ceremony was on July 28, 2007, since June 2010 ADO Den Haag has a naming rights agreement with the multinational Kyocera to change the name of the stadium to Kyocera Stadion.[2]

Security: Happy Crowd Control

When the club opened the stadium, Wim Deetman, the mayor of The Hague, said that this stadium is the most secure stadium in Europe. The stadium has security cameras installed that record several pictures of every audience member and the so-called Happy Crowd Control system will take pictures of spectators when entering the stadium.
