So the next question that arises is: "Where is the biggest terracing stand in the world?"

But To get back to the Beaver Stadium. The question is, do we define it as a single tier or as two tiers, because there is a little step in the middle, which practically separates it into two different seating areas.
So guys, do we "officially" have one single tier in the beaver stadium, or do we have two tiers???

I'd vote for two actually, because of the step.

Here in Aachen we had a proposal where there would have been a simmilar gap in the tier and another row of entrances and all the fans here disliked it, because they viewed it as a two tier stadium and not a sigle tier.
So strictly viewed I'd vote for two tiers. But looking at the pic and the optics I'd kinda go for one tier, but it does look like two structrures, like an extension of a smaler tier, so that would probably also kind of be a "soft" argument for viewing it as two tiers, simply because it's also not even a single structure.
Unlike the Olympic Stadium in Munich for example which clearly has only one single tier. Ther velodrome in marseille (the pic posted by marco) I would view as two tiers. even though that#s a really difficult call because the gap in the tier is only in the middle, at the very outer edges, there is no gap.

large 1 tier bowls do look good to me, better than smaller ones. Hopefully a club will be brave and build a modern one... maybe a club historically has player in one but needs a new stadium, Roma???

The views from the back in pictures don't see bad at all.

No, Beaver Stadium is one tier. That space is simply the entrance to the seats.

Surely if you can walk from the bottom row to the top row without leaving the seating area, it's one tier...

It is. And the funny thing is, they don't get used more than half a dozen times per season.

A lot of them also host comencements, and drum corps events. A number also host bowl games and some the given university soccer team/s, so they may get a little more use than that.

They certainly are huge, but their... how to say it... "quality standard" is quite lower than from those from pro teams. At least that is the impression that i get from seeing pictures and videos.

Holte End currently holds the title for the largest all-seater Kop End.



Here's a little history off the KOP - Its what made British Atmospheres notorious world-wide. Unfortunately. Some major disasters which inlcuded multiple deaths including 90+ at an FA Cup game led the call for all seater stadiums.

[/quote]"The Afrikaans name for the battle is Spioenkop; spioen for spy or look out and kop meaning hill or outcropping," wrote Liverpool Daily Post columnist Mike Chapple.

The first recorded reference to a sports terrace as Kop was at Woolwich Arsenal's Manor Ground in 1904, when a local newsman likened the silhouette of fans standing on a newly raised bank of earth to soldiers standing atop Spion Kop. Two years later, in 1906, Liverpool Echo sports editor Ernest Edwards noted of a new open-air embankment at Anfield: "This huge wall of earth has been termed 'Spion Kop', and no doubt this apt name will always be used in future in referring to this spot". The name was formally consummated in 1928 upon construction of a roof. It is thought to be the first terrace officially named Spion Kop. Many other English football clubs and some Rugby league clubs (such as Wigan's former home Central Park) followed suit and applied the same name to stands in later years.

Villa Park's old Holte End is historically the largest of all Kop ends closely followed by the old South Bank at Molineux, both once regularly holding crowds in excess of 30,000. By the mid 1980s Hillsborough's Kop had become the largest roofed terrace in Europe, with a capacity of around 25,000.[/quote]

This was a proposal for Molineux, Wolverhampton Wanderers in the early sixties. The South Bank Kop on the right hand side would've held over 35,000+ supporters in a single tier formation. The stadium would've housed over 30,000 seats also allowing over 80,000+ to watch Wolves who at the time were the biggest club in Europe.





ANother plan which would've seen a 25,000 Kop in a 60,000+ stadium later to be expanded



And another one in the late 80's




Put this into perspective.

This is Molineux today under new regulations. Only holds 28,500



AND THE SOUTHBANK ... JUST 5,400



Although this is too double in size and more under new plans being drawn up in attempt to make it one off the largest Kops in Europe again.
