I personally just can't think of any better brand new 30k stadium than this one in the entire world.


This is nice, but pretty standard, I think AAMI Park in Melbourne, Australia easily beats this for the best new 30000 seat stadium. It is far more creative. It is also in a prime location in the city as well as in the olympic park with great transport connections.

Ditto on the Gerland, although IMO the best portions are the newish stands from 1998, structural expressionism at its very best that works so nicely with the old Tony Garnier shell. Just an aesthetically wonderful stadium.

Speaking of which, for those who didn't see it yet, Gerland has its own thread in the "completed" section: LYON - Stade de Gerland (41,842). Feel free to comment/post in it.

Gerland

Never been a fan of the Gerland,especially the stands at the side,rake is far too shallow,upper tier hardly seems worthwhile it is so small,plus there is to much space between the stands and the pitch...and have never been a fan of open corners

Personally I love St James' Park, but I am a Newcastle United fan. Inside on the stands it's the greatest stadium there is.

Anyway without that here we go.

1. Lucas oil arena

2. Soccer city

3. Birds nest stadium

4. Aviva Arena

5. Munich

I really, really, reeeaaallyyy like Donbass.

At first glance it looks like a pretty standard, big, new stadium. A bowl and glass facade. But the proportions both inside and out and the slant of the stadium especially when looking from the outside is just stunning. Simply in my opinion, judging from pictures, just one hell of a looker. The roof looks light but doesn't feel floaty (which I don't like, I like my stadiums with roofs on them). Geez, I'm pleasantly surprised how this turned out.

Anyone know the average attendance of Shaktar?
