1.) High land costs
2.) ton of suites and clubs
3.) Union Labor
4.) Stone and masonry exterior >>>>> pretty much anything including glass, or just some weak exposed skeleton of the stadium
5.) Main concourse that's not an afterthought.

Thanks, Sercan.


I have a question, guys.

What would be the cost of one steel profile like this:

Something similar to this stadium somewhere in England:

I need this to calculate rough costs for a stand of my local club.

More interesting to me:

What factors keep a stadium building in low maintenance costs? How should an efficient stadium be constructed, what materials should be used?

*Real estate costs keep going up.
*Stadiums have larger capacities.
*The stadiums themselves have larger footprints, due to chair seating, legroom and wider concourses.
*The suite levels have become larger and more elaborate.
*Stadiums have much larger numbers of bathrooms and concession stands, which eats up more space. The old formula of 'one pub and one bathroom for each 10,000 fans' just doesn't cut it anymore.
*Security, at both the entrances and within the grounds, has to be greatly increased.
*Structurally the stadiums have to be designed differently. Especially in California, Washington, Japan, Turkey, Greece and Italy, the newer and larger designs have to allow for earthquakes.
*And the very cost of designing all of these wonderful things has gone way up.
