Lansdowne: by the numbers
AVIVA Stadium is an all-seater ground accommodating 50,000. Work on the project began in 2004 when the Lansdowne Road Stadium Development Company (LRSDC) was formed to re-develop the stadium. Planning permission was sought in January 2006 and granted in 2007. It cost €410m to re-develop. The taxpayer contributed €190m. There are 10,000 premium seats, and 36 corporate boxes. The President has her own box pitch-side.
