Huldiging FC Twente @ Grolsch veste

A section of a Dutch soccer De Grolsch Veste stadium has partially collapsed during off-season renovations last Thursday in the Netherlands.

At least eight people are injured and mostly are construction workers. The renovation work was intended to increase the stadium's capacity to 30,000 from 24,000 by adding a new tier above existing seating.

A rescue operation is under way in the Dutch city of Enschede after a section of FC Twente's De Grolsch Veste stadium collapsed, trapping an unknown number of people.

Twente is in the third qualifying round of next season's Champions League and is scheduled to host a match at the Grolsch Veste stadium on July 26-27 or Aug. 2-3. The exact date will be decided next week.
