The Van Donge & De Roo Stadion, until May 2017 Stadion Woudestein (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈstaːdiˌjɔn ˈʋʌu̯dəˌstɛi̯n])[2], is a multi-use stadium in Rotterdam, Netherlands. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home stadium of Excelsior Rotterdam, as well as for the women's team Excelsior Barendrecht. The stadium is able to hold 4,500 people and was built in 1902.[3] The stadium has a stand named after Robin Van Persie, who played in its youth career for Excelsior between 1997 and 1999.[4]

As of 2017, it is by far the smallest stadium in the Eredivisie.
