Interesting. I remember reading that Ukraine HAD TO finish everything up by 2010 as one of the agreements.

Alright, how many are done? 1, 2? You were pretty much implying that all stadiums were all but officially completed.

The stadiums really aren't particularly pleasing aesthetically are they?

I guess the beautiful surroundings will have to make up for that...

This picture looks quite recent. Apparently they finished the paving works. When I last visited the site two months ago, they were far from that.

Maybe. But the question is, if the added value beyond 2008 would be able to outvalue the costs. The big stadium is not used too often in Vienna.

In terms of sustainability and economical soundness, the EURO 2008 is probably one of the best bids ever.

Maybe a potential new stadium in Vienna could be designed primarily for concerts and festivals, with an option to use it also for football.

There is a new stadium planned near Sion (Switzerland) where concerts and festivals are also an important part of the concept. It is designed in a way that one of the four stands (opposite the stage) will be huge, the other three much smaller:

http://www.lematin.ch/pages/home/spo...contenu=260975

Are there similar designs already realised somewhere?

Probably they say 2010 to make sure it will be finished by 2011.

one-year-to-go!

Kick-Off EURO 2008 on Jungfraujoch "Top of Europe" (highest train station in Europe on 3454 m. above sea level).

The two co-hosts have many differences concerning the nature of their states and their history, but what really unites them is the Alps which is nicely reflected in the logotype.

A temporary "stadium" was built on the ridge between the mountain tops of Jungfrau (4158 m) & Mönch (4'107 m) - spectacular!

Current and former national players of Switzerland and Austria incl. guest players were playing a game which ended with a draw, 5:5, of course

here's the video:

No, but a significant reconstruction. Although there will be a new huge stadium (65k+) build in city as well. Nobody is entirely sure why.

- in January 2007, the regional hockey teams SCL Tigers and SC Bern played a first division league match on a custom-built ice-rink in the Stade de Suisse - 30'000 spectators meant a record crowd for hockey league matches in Europe

Zurich, Letzigrund
- opened in 1925
- the stadium has been the host of one of the most popular athletics meetings in the world and also to the local football club FC Zurich
- through the years, Letzigrund has seen 24 World Records in Athletics, including in 1960 the first man running 100m in 10,0 seconds
- the old stadium was dismantled in 2006
- completion of the new development, nicknamed "birthday cake", with the field 8m below ground level, will be in August 2007
- Golden League athletics event "Weltklasse Zürich" and first national and international football games in September 2007
- the stadium is designed as an athletics, amateur sports, music and event stadium, and a neighbourhood meeting center, during the upcoming ca. 3-4 years, it will be also host for both professional football clubs in Zurich: FC Zurich & Grasshoppers-Club both playing in the Swiss first division - until the new football stadium will be completed

Klagenfurt, Wörthersee-Stadion
- will be completed in September 2007 on the site of a former much smaller stadium, first international friendly match in October
- after the EURO, the 2nd tier will be probably dismantled (but there's still discussions about it) - the materials will be used for the building of other stadiums in Austria - the Klagenfurt stadium will then have a capacity of 12'000
- the best local team has been unsuccessful for years to advance to the Austrian first division, now it is merging with the first division club from the village of Pasching near Linz and the new club will play in the Wörthersee stadium in Klagenfurt
