Why?

The Italian stadiums are some of the most beautiful . . .

. . . compared to the French ones, which is often sickening.

What's wrong with Ataturk? I think the tiers flow quite nicely and it looks open. My main complaint is that they play football there!

As a multipurpose stadium it seems a lot better than Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, although its only a good thing that Steelers moved to Heinz Field and Pirates to PNC park.

The problem with Maksimir stadium is that it had a lower tier (terracing), all the way to the track but they destroyed it when the reconstruction started. The problem is, they newer finished it. The plan vas to add rectangular lower tier to fill the gap but then they had some financial problems, cganged the project etc.
Now no one knows what the project is or are they going to bulid a new stadiom or finish this one. It`s a mess

The Rockpile (War Memorial) in Buffalo NY is hands down hideous..It met the wreckers ball some years ago..

I see someone posted pix of historic Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburg PA..Not very attractive but useful never the less.

More multi-purpose madness from the USA...They all kinda look alike don't they?? Except the Kingdome..

I thought Busch was pretty nice with the improvements made to it.

By the time it was demolished you could actually consider it more unique than the park into which they moved.

It would've been cool to see what it would've looked like with a brick faįade added.

At that point it was definitely more unique than the Camden Yards one off that they got (certainly more amenities in the new one, but its kelly green seats away from the most banal thing in the majors). I for one really liked it from the inside.

The old one definitely could have used some facade work, but brick would have been a terrible choice in my opinion. A cleaner more modern look in line with its original construction would have been good, perhaps a mondrian metal panel and glass look.

I still think a renovation would have done it fine, but whats done is done.

I'd put in the top ten for college stadiums, but I guess thats just my opinion.

I like Soccer City, though I just wish they converted that uniquely-designed stadium into an all-seater.
