About 5 or 6 years ago it was roughly $50,000 Australian dollars per a seat in a modern stadium. So times that by the size (X) and you have a rough approximation.

Papa John's Cardinal Stadium costs $63 Million American. It would probably cost somewhat more with a roof covering the seating bowl.

That would make $50 million for a 1000 seater stadium... Did you mean $5,000/seat (five thousand as opposed to fifty)?

At that rate a 40,000 seater would cost $2b. Even Wembley is coming in cheaper than that, with it's retractable roof, and state of the art everything.

R700 - 800 million in south africa, assuming the stadium meets FIFA requirements.
R500 million would be the least cost alternative.
So divide that by about 7 = =+/- 70 million US dollars

50000 AU = approx 35000 US. Seems pretty pricey. Maybe he's talking about the cost of adding additional seats to existing stadia? (ie/ the recent modifications to the MCG).

Yeah the AU$ averages between 75-80 US cents and the "modifications to the MCG" also included demolition of previous stands in it's AU$434 million price tag. The new stand has about 55,000 seats and it's comfort level is on a par with the new Wembley.

Telstra Dome in Melbourne was built in 2000 for around AU$450 million and it has 55,000 seats, retractable roof, retractable lower tier, underground carpark and state of the art corporate facilities eg. Medallion Club.

Both projects come up as approximately AU$8,000 per seat if I'm not mistaken...

Manchester got a 40,000 odd seater afew years ago and I think that cost around £125 Million plus another £60 Million to upgrade it to 48,000.

Sorry, I meant $5,000 per seat.

Lucky I am not the company accountant or we would be over-charging.

I'm trying to figure out what Melbourne could get for it's money if it went for size rather than visual splendour with it's new rectangular stadium bid. 5000/seat makes it sound like they(we) could get a 40000 seater for the same money as the planned 20-25k 'bubble'.

From what I've heard the bubble roof is actually a cheaper option than a traditional flat roof.

Yep, but due to the construction techniques required, they can't go bigger than 28k seats (give or take 1k) - and the main tennants are already averaging over that. Seems stupid to build a stadium for a club that doesn't want it.

Keep in mind that they averaged only 14,000 last season. This season they're the run-away best team in the comp and have a huge bandwagon, but it won't last. If the Vic government build this 27,000 seater they'll be fine, especially since they'll have the option to move one or two marquee games a season to the Dome.

Value for money...

I know costs vary from nation to nation, year to year, etc. But which stadiums do we feel represent the best value for money in terms of cost/seat?

I know my club's home (Sunderland Stadium of Light) initially cost 27 million for 42k seats, all undercover, completed in 1997 (with minor modifications between 97 & 99) - I'm sure someone can better...


Stadium of Light, before the North Stand (left side of pic) was extended, taking capacity to 48300.

Is this renovated or newly built? It's incredibly cheap for a 44K seater. When is the construction started and finished?

I think this will be the best value for money among stadiums inaugurated in the 2000s

Seoul Worldcup Stadium.
- Inaugurated in Dec 27, 2001
- 66,806 seats
- Approximately 200 million USD
