Me too. There are at least 1000 uglier stadiums in the world. Maybe they don't like the fact that tiers look a bit cut off?
In my opinion, one of the ugliest 25k+ stadium in Europe is Maksimir from Zagreb. And many european teams that played against Dinamo in last 10 - 15 years were stunned about the condition of Maksimir. But, it's the problem that all former Yugoslav republics share. Poor infrastructure, low quality football, early elimination from european competitions.. The same is in Serbia. Partizan' stadium, often called JNA is older than 60 years, and UEFA's demands for each season are growing, Red Star's marakana is also in pretty bad shape, with many columns on stadium's facade damaged, and other football field in Serbia are just pure horror. Some of the stadiums look like they are demolished.. But ball must roll on

Maksimir isn't really a stadium so its out of competition.

When this thread will be called "ugly/funny unfinished barns", then we can talk about it

I've always thought the away stand (on the right) at Fir Park (Motherwell) looks hideous - especially since it is so blatantly build for 2-4 games per season (the upper deck is only ever opened for visits of the Old Firm. (Hearts had it opened for 1 game several years ago)

The main stand aint up to much either, mind.

If you actually think the new Yankee Stadium is the ugliest stadium ever built, then I question your knowledge of stadiums and wonder why you're even on this forum.

The stands closer to the field were torn down a few years back. Plans are in place to rebuild and renovate the stadium. Stay tuned for a much better looking stadium.

Yankee Mallpark does a good job paying homage to the Federal Reserve Building.



Other than that it's sterile, bland, colorless, uninviting and cold.

Here a brand new, very modern stadium I find extremely ugly.
The Energieteam Arena in Paderborn, Germany. (capacity 15000)

With this stadium whatever they did, they basically consequently chose the poorest possible solution in any case.
The elevated stands with the stairway entrances at the front, the high, steep roof, the overall cheap shoebox design. The awful exterior.
The one and only thing that is good about it this stadium is, that it's still new and not all deteriorated.

I must agree with you that this stadium is ugly considering that it is a new stadium...

IMO, it is. The new Yankee Mallpark could have been something majestic instead it's bland, dull and ugly. Quite the letdown.


This is just lazy and unimaginative.

and I think this stadium has excellent acoustics given the fact that the wall in between roof and stands is (way too) high and the roof angle is exaggerated.
But ugly indeed, very ugly...

Any ugly arenas (I mean an object designed for indoor sports like basketball, not a big football stadium with a retractable roof)?

That's it, when things aren't going your way, take your ball and go home. I'm not going to echo your sentiments. Accept that reality. Way to discuss things in a civil manner.
