Deeply sorry, we all forgot it was all about the looks when "we" presented our bid.
However, neither UEFA nor the OC could be convinced that Vienna needs a 70,000+ flashy Calatrava-meets-Foster-bowl.
I got the funny feeling that they were right.

Don't listen to them, your bid is good. Both countries have good stadiums, transport, infrastrucrure, sufficient amount of hotels. I think that all stadiums are of good standart, and capacities are not a problem, you have to look into the future. obviously Vienna doesn't need 60+k stadium that you will not be able to fill in the future.

the bid is fine, the stadiums are fine, but the final stadium should be something a bit better to be honest, the only pleasing aesthetic part of the Ernst-Happel is the roof, the rest is dated and could do with a proper touch up, not just a minor one

Agreed.
It kind of resembles a museum, but what would you expect from a 1930 stadium?
And it's cool somehow, not sterile and soulless, like numberless other 5*-stadiums. Lots of things happened there...

i think Wörthersee Arena in Klagenfurt is awesome!that's why i voted for that stadium....but which team is going to use it?
....St Jakob Park is also nice and i also like Stadion Salzburg and Stade de Suisse is good with an interesting style...in general i believe the stadiums are nice
and they DO look great..of course Austria and Switzerland both look fantastic.....can't wait....1 more year...
So yeah it's Wörthersee Arena by me...and where does the final take place?

Erm, page 3 is kind of a disgrace for this important thread.

Anyway. First picture of Salzburg's stadium with the upper tier occupied:


Today the stadium saw its first match in front of 31.000 spectators when Salzburg challenged Arsenal (and won by 1-0, don't ask me how but they did...)

Looks alright, although it's nothing really groundbreaking. Kinda like the Borussia-Park in Mönchengladbach.

its a good design considering the upper tier is temporary and will be removed after 2008.

No need for the extra capacity after the Euro. They would be playing in a half empty stadium for most of their games if they kept 31,000 seats.

Actually, there is some controversy about the upper tier in SZG right now, as the club has plans to keep it, but local politicians have already promised to the (goddamn *******) NIMBYs that the original size will be kept.

Now the solar power station on the roof of Stade de Suisse Wankdorf in Bern is fully developed. The energy production rises up to 1.2 Mil. kilowatt hours per year equal to the annual consumption of about 400 households.



The new parts were officially put into operation. Now the solar roof surface amounts to 12 ' 000 square metres - before it was 8,000 square metres. The solar power plant on the stadium roof exists for two years. The arrangement was developed because of the big demand for solar stream. It is the worldwide biggest solar power station integrated in a stadium and is worth about 10 Mil. CHF, operated without any subsidies.

In two weeks, the opening of the new Letzigrund stadium in Zurich will take place. Yesterday evening the interesting illumination has been tested for the first time:
