Toumba Stadium was inaugurated in 1959, but since then extensive renovation work has taken place. The main one in 2004, when a multifunctional four-storey building was erected attached to Gate 1.
VIP seats and hospitality
Toumba Stadium can accommodate 28.701 spectators. Four hundred of those seats are VIP and can be reached through the third floor.
On the same floor, a special area has been set up for the living legends of the club. Since the start of the 2014-15 season, PAOK’s veterans have their own space and can watch the home games of the team as the club’s special guests.
As for VIP season ticket holders, they all enjoy special hospitality services.
There are 7 suites for 8 people and 3 suites for 15 people on the third floor. On the fourth floor, there is one suite for 20 people and 3 suites for 14 people. But it’s the major shareholder’s luxurious suite that catches the eye on the fourth floor. It was set up in 2012 and provides all amenities to the guests, plus an ideal view over the football pitch. There are also 200 VIP seats on the same floor.
PAOK FC offices
After Mr. Ivan Savvidis took over at PAOK FC in 2012, specific areas of Toumba Stadium underwent extensive renovation work, mainly the entrance, the offices, the meeting room and the presidential suite. All changes were implemented following careful study of the respective areas in big European football arenas.
A metal construction in the shape of the Double-Headed Eagle overlooks the new entrance to the offices. As for the trophy cabinet, it is the first thing the guest sees when visiting the club offices.
Immediately after the new entrance and the stairway leading to the offices, the new meeting room dominates the area. Impressive design, functionalism, all state-of-the-art audiovisual accessories and special lighting to meet the needs of any meeting or work projection.
Media tribune and Press Conference Room
The media tribune has been relocated several times in the five decades of Toumba’s existence. During the last renovation, it was moved to Gate 3 and expanded to accommodate 156 people.
Media representatives enter Toumba from their own independent gate near the mixed zone. The renovated Press Conference Room and the work space for journalists and photographers are on the first floor. Access to the media tribune’s seven rows is through the third floor.
To meet the needs of European encounters at Toumba, there are 24 additional commentary positions on the fourth floor of the main building and its extension built in February 2014.
