It looks like 80k stadium, it has that massive look. Strange that capacity is "only" 50k.

They should indeed put Austrian flag like seats, it would look awesome.

OK, these pics are not really stadium-related, but with only one day to go until the first match in Vienna, I thought you might be interested in the decorations of the metro station "Stadion":

Some dumbasses couldn't even write the German word for Greece (Griechenland):

C'mon... How stupid can you be? How on earth can that happen?

I mean, someone's supposed to check that, right? Embarassing...

Nope, unfortunately, I don't have any pictures more recent than those on page 23. The stadium area was fenced in and closed for the public the day after.
However, when I were there yesterday, I heard noise from the inside and I suppose they were rehearsing for some kind of opening ceremony.

Well, the Grienchenland (wuahahaha!!) was there only one day, right? (According to the pics it looks like they change that for every match). Nevertheless, quite embarassing.

Actually not. It looked like all the teams names were to be there for the whole tournament.

Here's a funny episode regarding Euro 2008. A famous Korean football journalist(the guy wearing glasses) came across AC Milan's head coach Carlo Ancelotti on the way to Innsbruck for coverage of Spain VS Russia match. This is a real coincidence but in fact that's because two guys got the tickets for speeding at the same place at the same time! Ancelotti was also driving his way to see the game. You can see him holding the receipt of speeding ticket in the second picture.

Yep, judging by Greece's performance against Sweden yesterday , the following could as well have been prophetic :

Another Athens shall arise
And to remoter time
Bequeath, like sunset to the skies,

And leave, if nought so bright may live,

Ive noticed that the seats in many stadiums are very close to the pitch like they are in England, whereas during the wc a safety distance was implemented which meant that in Dortmund for instance a few rows that were close to the pitch were demolished.
Now the UEFA and the FIFA seem to have different safety regulations. Does anybody know more about this?

UEFA as we know have 6m for sidelines and 7,5m for endlines.
Someone here said FIFA World Cup requires 4m more on the sidelines, don't know if that applies for endlines as well.

FIFA regulated auxiliary area must have at least 8.5m on the each sideline and 10m on the each endline in the latest FIFA stadium guideline released last year.

FIFA says also +6m at the sightlines and +7,5m at the endzone stands
But they say 8,5m at 10m are "better"
