Just imagine if it was actual terracing, or some safe standing set up (like in many German stadiums). It would be immense!

About the May Day Stadium in Pyongyang...watching some pics of the one-tier stand, i could determine it has aprox. 74 rows. I couldn't find any pics showing a general view of the stadium, or one showing it empty. All there is in the net are pics showing those masive choreographies with colored boards and strange patterns. I had to compare this 2 pics:

Where's the "biggest tier" thread gone?


This stand on the right looks pretty big, (Olympic University stadium, Mexico)

Toyota Stadium, Japan. Not that big, but look at the steepness!

It's my favourite stadium in Japan - I was disappointed it wasn't used in the 2002 WC - and it looks a lot larger than 45,000 seats!

It was built in 2001, and has a capacity of 45,000. No other stadium was used in the city of Toyota... so I don't have a clue! Perhaps they just didn't need it!

I'd like Toyota Stadium's roof technology to be used more.

^ Yeah I forgot to mention it has a retractable roof. The best thing about it that when the roof is shut it doesn't feel enclosed like an indoor arena - this is because so much natural light floods in through the corners and above the stands. Rain proof and an outside atmosphere...well done Japan

Maybe the fact that japan had 10 other stadiums, although i'd would've dropped one of thos athletics stadiums, i hate multipurpose stadiums which don't cater = to both disciplines

Which stand and which stadiums was one of the first 3 tier one?

Bernabeu has got 3 tiers, but the 3rd tier was added in the 1988 (as far as i remember)
Camp Nou's 3rd tier was added in 1982

Ibrox and Stamford and have got old stands with 3 tiers.

I think Goodison Park was the first stadium in England to have 3 tiers. It was also the first stadium to use under soil heating.

The three-tiered stand at Goodison only dates back to 1971 - it was the first three-tier in Britain, but I doubt it's the oldest in the world.

Yankee Stadium (the original, baseball) alway had a three tier grandstand, and opened in 1923.

Ryan Field (American Football) outside of Chicago was originally going to have a pair of 3 tier stands on the sidelines, with two tier ones on the ends and a capacity of 72,000 back in 1926, however the money wasn't there so it was build with a two tier main stand and a lower single level one opposite with about 34,000 seats. However it was built to take additional levels of seating on both sides but those expansions never happened.

Metropolitan Stadium (baseball/American Football) in suburban Minneapolis was the first three tier stadium with full cantilevered upper tiers. it opened in 1956.

As far as Association Football stadiums go I can't say, but its been a trend in the US for some time.

No, it still is, Many of the 60s and 70s "cookie cutter" stadiums were 3 or 4 tier buildings. Most of the new baseball and football stadiums are 3 tier. Just pointing out that its not that recent a development.
