In october of this year? Do you mean the demolition of old stadium or the construction of new stadium? If the latter, I can't believe they will finish both the demolition and the construction just in a year and four months.

The roof is so high???? I don't understand what you are trying to mean? Maybe you hate the stadium with high roofs???????

If the thing you hate about SWS is the gap between the roof and the stand, I think it's inevitable. The archtects desinged the stadium to symbolize a Korea's traditional shield kite so it would have to have the gaps to look like a kite seen from above.

come on, look at the 2nd pic you posted... the distance between the highest seat and the top of the roof is enormous. besides that's not very functional, if the rain comes from a side a lot of people on the first rows will get all wet....

Borås Arena in Sweden can host up to 17000 people for a football match. It cost only about €12M to construct. Only downside is that it's all plastic. Even the turf (as well as the team and supporters)...

£16m for the original 30,000 or so seats at the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough. Went up pretty quickly, if memory serves well.

The best 'value' for money ever spent on a stadium. Is that old Roman arena at Arles in the south of France. They still use the joint after 2000 years, it also gets tourists to come to the town.

Hats off to Caesar for that civic improvement.

Fenway Park. Built 1912 at a cost of $650,000 for 35,000 seats. Has been increased to 37,500 seats. Counting inflation, that is still only $14,319,431.83.

^

But the seating situation and layout has been changed around a lot, and a lot of other improvements have been made.

Bang for you bucks Stadiums

I've been watching this forum for the past year or so and decided to join in on the fun.
The constant talk on here is the grandure of stadiums, how big and attractive we can build them and the costs associated with them obviously are quite high.
What i'd like to know what stadiums do you think have been the most cost efficient in terms of product for price. But having said that lets keep them with some sort of aesthetic appeal.

I thought i'd start.

I think an efficient stadium (and surrounds) would have to be the Sydney International Tennis Centre.

It was constructed for the Olympics at a cost of
38 Million Australian dollars. (20 Million euro)

10,000 seat main stadium, 2 show courts and 13 other courts along with player facility area and to boot it looks great.

BMO Field seemed like a nifty stadium that quickly went up. Good fit for the team and easily expandable.

The Stadium of Light, Sunderland, UK

Inital - 42,000 / 27M / 34M Euro / $53M
Current 49,000 / 7M / 9M Euro / $15M



I think the next expansion, to 56,000 was priced at ~ 10M GBP but won't take place for a few years. The stadium was built with a final capacity of 64,000 in mind.

Makes you wonder why Newcastle, just 10 miles away, would want to spend 300M GBP on adding 8,000 seats to St James Park

The location makes it extremely difficult to expand st. james park.

Agreed. They'd be better off leaving and building a Stadium of Light II only with black and white seats.
