Polman Stadion is a multi-use stadium in Almelo, Netherlands. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium has a capacity of 8,500 spectators and was built in 1999. It is the official stadium of Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo. Its pitch is made from artificial turf.
The stadium was opened on 10 September 1999 followed by the opening match against FC Zwolle. Heracles player Job ten Thije scored the first goal in the Polman Stadium. In 2005 the capacity of the stadium was expanded from 6,900 to 8,500 seats of which 400 are available for the supporters of the visiting team.
However Heracles Almelo currently have advanced plans to build a new stadium with a capacity of around 15,000 spectators, which is scheduled to be finished by mid-2013. This new stadium would mean that Heracles would no longer use the Polman Stadion.
