That's actually Semple Stadium in Thurles, Co. Tipperary which holds 53,500.

The Gaelic Grounds in Limerick is below:

That's because it is smaller than 49,500 seats. Most of its capacity is standing room, not seating.

This stadium always gave me the impression it's like 10k over its actual capacity, I thought it was at least 36-37k when I first saw it. I was surprised it's only 28k.
The first modern stadium in Moscow and Russia.

I'd like to add the fantastic stadium from a Turkish hotel (about 6.000) with 3 tiers each stand making it look like a 20.000 stadium. Pictures were once posted about 2 years ago in another topic. Anyone?

No its not. Its the bastard child of Derby County's stadium. Its nothing like the stadium of light and the riverside was not built in a bowl design it had three stands and a single stand.

It only hold about 2,000 plus fans on game days. The Biggest sellout at the stadium was a Eton john gig. It was built by the owner using his own money and alot of fans were against it. The seats are bit small for anyone over 6foot.

I remember... it's called Mardan Stadyumu/Stadium (cap. 7,428). Despite its small capacity, quite unique, a hotel that holds a stadium. Antalya is the place for it as it welcomes Europeans football clubs on their summer campaigns.





Apparently it hosted the 2008 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship.

Concerning this thread, there are obviously a number of reasons why stadiums look bigger or smaller than the actually are (in capacity): steepness of the stands/tiers, number of tiers, closed or open corners, shape (e.g. sloping down or up) and size of the roof, terraces/bleachers/seats (and for the latter: how wide are they and how much space is there between them?), business seats and skyboxes (logically take up more space per seat) etc. Concerning the impression of a stadium's size from the outside roof, facade, columns, pylons... are important factors as well as whether the stadium is dug out or not (or, in some cases, higher than its surroundings).

Wrigley Field (42,374) always looks much smaller to me:


And Old Yankee Stadium (56,936) always felt like there were about 100,000 people there to me...

Tell me about it. I would say 'that's what happens when you lose 13 starters...' but the offense seemed to click.

Patterson's gonna run those boys all week until they vomit all the slowness out.

Most if not all major league ballparks have bleachers, including the new Yankee Stadium.
