Houses that are very close to a stadium?

Got an idea from a radio show in Scotland which was discussing houses that are very close to football stadiums and how it is affecting property prices etc. (houses close to emirates stadium in london are going up apparently)

Anyway please post photos of houses close to stadiums around the world for my viewing pleasure...

Particularly ones with views of the actual inside of the stadium

Do they pay for the free watching? I'm not joking. That's what I was wondering.

At Emirates the only thing they could watch is the fans coming and going.

West Ham and Charlton spring to mind. There are two tower blocks close to at least one of the corners iirc. Also, weren't there flats at the one of the corners of Highbury where fans could see some of the pitch?

I hope that the overpricing in the property really happens because I live next to one of the 2014 WC stadiums.
But here in Brazil we have some stadiums that you can see the pitch from the houses.


Estádio Independência- Belo Horizonte-MG -This picture was taken from a building and you also can see the pitch from some of the houses all around the stadium. There is even people who use their balcony as VIP sectors selling tickets.


Estádio dos Aflitos - Recife-PE- Check the flags on that building. The fans should die for living in this building

I have a friend who lives in Icon which is the condo tower in the picture above and every resident can bring two guests to watch games from the rooftop for free.

It doesn't give a view of the pitch, but this is the entrance to Luton Town's Kenilworth Road Stadium.

Who are those girls? Are they taking a pose for some commercial promotion?

Åråsen Stadion in Norway has apartments inside the stadium, behind the end stands.
