Yeah, I'd be a little shocked if any stands are higher than DKR's west stand, if it really is twice the height of the Melbourne Cricket Ground thats is just ridiculous.

DKR looks even larger from outside the West stand since the field is probably a good 20-30 above street level on that side.

But I think Cowboys Stadium may be taller. I've been at the top of both and Cowboys Stadium is literally ridiculous how high it is.







compared to

most stadiums here have no numbers at all.

well, this is not the highest, but this one HAS the numbers... Grêmio Arena (u/c)

the highest seat is 37 meters, but then, after the highest seat, you have cabins that make total height reach 41 meters

ps: click on the zoom icon to see in much bigger size, where you can read the numbers
https://picasaweb.google.com/adroir/...46439658338514

the roof reaches 49,8 meters, and the maximum height of the structure, which includes the trussers that hold the roof, reach 60 meters.

The arch holds up the roof at Wembley while the tower at the olympic stadium does nothing, it used to but because of huge mechanical problems they built a fixed roof back in 1998.[/QUOTE]


there are cables from the tower to the roof that supports it a tiny bit

Tallest stand(seats above playing field) is the DKR - 65 metres-like 213 feet,i have the section plan.Considering all the section plans i have seen ,i dont think there is another stadium in this world above 60 metres tall,except DKR.There are numerous beasts of stadiums over 150 feet tall(considered huge)-most of them are from the NFL,and the big college football stadiums also .In Europe the tallest is San Siro surely(57m),others very tall (50 metres range)-Camp Nou,Santiago Bernabeu,Wembley,Da Luz,Stade de France,Millennium,Allianz Arena,Old Trafford north stand is 50 metres btw(i have the section plans),Ataturk is enormous tall imo,and a few others.
From the NFL ones there are numerous that are pushing the 60 meter barrier,obviously Meadowelands,Cowboys and lots others.

Old Trafford's north stand is 41m high, as you can see it's not that much tall.

Santa Clara Stadium is being built under the flight path for San Jose International Airport, so they had to file in the Environmental Impact Report the exact height of the structure. It will top out in several places at 186 feet (56.7 meters).

from looking at this: http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?...6112419&page=1

it looks like Arrowhead Stadium is one of, if not, the tallest from highest seat-field... it's about 210 feet from the top seat to the field

That height is not longer accurate, as there are some new suites and a club above the upper level in the south side.

Go to the link below, and scroll down to post #98:

There are suites with seats up there. Then again, I have no idea where you would get data on the new height. Guess I just opened a can of worms.
