Estadio George Capwell is located in the dense urban center of the city of Guayaquil. There are houses all around it, though none taller than a stand.



(Also check out the steepness of both upper end stands. And they're standing room only!)

The stadium in my town in Ecuador (called Portoviejo) also has buildings nearby, though not quite as constricted as the Capwell; in fact there's a a few, or at least one building from where you can see the field.


(picture taken from that building I mentioned)

Inside the stadium? It doesn't look like they are inside it to my eyes.

in Ireland stadiums are usually originally built on the outskirts of a town/city but the cities sprawl around it making them very close to the stadiums..

Some examples

I don't think it's possible to live closer to the field of play than people do at Brisbane Road (home of Leyton Orient FC)... unless you lived underground!

I remember when my team were playing there a few seasons ago, a couple of our fans were thrown out... so they managed to bribe one of the residents to let them watch the game from their balcony instead

This is in Cluj, CFR Stadium in a neighborhood of houses.






The big problem is that the neighborhood is located on a hill and when games are played, the crowd fills the streets and it's impossible to get home.

Two that spring to mind are Grays Athletic and Club Deportiu Esportiu in Barcelona.

Grays Athletic (link too big to post directly)

At Grays, who nearly got into the Football League a few years back before the cash ran out, there used to be a guy who would stand on his balcony and ring a bell when Grays scores. Naturally CUFC lost 5-3 and he had a few suggestions of where the bell might be better located!

And Esportiu, who are in the Spanish 4th tier (I think):

Thousands of people must have a view over their ground in Barcelona

The roof structure is connected to the apartment building. If you look at this photo taken from the air you can see that the apartments are a part of the stadium complex.



Heres the view from one of the corner apartments.

This is Rayo Vallecano stadium: next year in First Division. Barša and Real Madrid have historically suffered in that stadium because of the narrow field

What are you on about? Croke Park and Lansdowne were always in the heart of the city.

Historically, that's actually probably true.

Nearly all of the 100+ year old sites in the midst of houses we see today were actually built on undeveloped land. The houses came afterwards.

Not just 100+, others like Mestalla or Bernabeu were simply like a new stadium at the edge these days, but since the cities grew and the stadiums needed to be expanded they also took a steeper form because of the lack of space. I don't think the same was there for Highbury though, for example.
