Nieuw Monnikenhuize

Nieuw Monnikenhuize was a multi-use stadium situated in Monnikenhuize, a northern neighbourhood of Arnhem, Netherlands. It was used mostly for football matches and hosted the home matches of SBV Vitesse Arnhem. The stadium was able to hold 12,000 people in a mix of seats and standing, however with the addition of temporary bleachers it could be raised to 18,000.

The stadium was opened on the 3rd of September 1950. The first match saw Vitesse beat Feyenoord 2-1.

The last game was played on the 21st of December 1997, Vitesse beating FC Twente 2-1.
