Those three top tiers don't look very safe to be honest.

It looks great, but would it even work? The first three tiers are very steep, and if moved forwards over the ones below, it doesn't look like you actually be able to see the whole pitch from the top tiers.

This sort progressively further overhanging upper levels has been used occasionally in large music venues since the Auditorium building in 1889. This method tends to amplify volume levels, especially towards the back of the hall and in the upper balconies. Despite being that old and as big as it is (almost 5,000 seats when it opened) the Auditorium is considered by many conductors and musicians to be the best space acoustically for classical music in Chicago. I don't know if the acoustic properties would work in similar fashion nor why one would use a design device for concert acoustics in a football stadium, though I would guess not more than another overhanging design in my opinion. It would also be a really expensive option given how much more structure the roof would need, and how many more separate support spaces would be needed to serve the litany of tiers of seating.
Kind of reminds me of a horse track grandstand.

When it's safe (regarding hundreds of jumping supporters), yeah build it by any means. Would be a unique and irregular stand for a unique and irregular team (St. Pauli). But it doesn't look safe at all...

that looks terrible. should only be done if space is extremely limited. also, I cannot imagine the view from the upper tiers being very good. wouldn't the sight lines be cut?

The top tier would need to be about a 45 degree pitch in order to see unless it's only one row. It looks to be only 1 or 2 rows.

Kinda reminds me of old Yankee Stadium with the top tier towering over the one below

The first genuine triple-deck stand in England was the Chelsea main stand, finished in 1974.

Twickenham was also open, with triple decks on all four sides, in 2006 - a year earlier than Wembley.

I don't know when the stand was built, but the baseball ground looked like this (minus the seats) in at least the 60s




Edit: Just found this with the same stand from "The 1930s"

That isn't a triple-decker though.

A triple decker (which is what I believe the question really was about given the examples listed) is where one tier overhangs the other.

There are loads of earlier examples of stands with three tiers in the sense that Derby had them. The old East Stand at Spurs, a 1930s build, is a good example.

God I miss this. Nothing like it anywhere else in sports - only place it had any negatives were in RF and LF where you lost a little of the corners, otherwise, it was fantastic!
