I'm sure it was sarcasm

I doubt Wembley is twice the size. Bigger, but not twice. What I did find out is that HOK's design was a finalist for Paul Brown. Knowing that at looking at NBBJ's portfolio vs HOK Sports' its not surprising that this is an NBBJ design. They seem to take more risks.





Their portfolio of sport venues is awesome




They also did The Linc. Equally as progressive, yet a totally different design

I had the opportunity of seeing some soccer games everywhere in europe, and i can say that the stadium that impressed me a lot is the Camp Nou of Barcelona.

I guess its just the English national team. But it will probably be used in various events, cups and so on.

why? Because of the height of the stands? I think both Camp Nou and Santiago Bernabeu have ultra high crowd stands...

Nice snapshot of Patrick Kluivert!

I only say Stade de France, because if Arsenal lift the Champions League there on May 17th, it will be my favourite.

I'm surprised no sado Manc-loving **** hasn't come on and said OLD CRAPFORD

I'm not a fan of baseball but I have to say Miller Park does look fantastic. I really like the old and new look.

Wembley: The home of football! Football is our religion, Wembley is our church! ....Need I say more? I think not!

Oh, and btw, to answer your question, eemreee, Wembley isn't being built for any club football team, it is just the English national football stadium, hosting international matches, Cup finals (FA Cup, Carling Cup, Champions league) and also some music concerts. Plus, it will play a part in the London Olympics in 2012!

Wembley is quite simply the best footie stadium in the world.

As far as other sports go, they have their top trumps.

Rugby - Millenium Stadium

Cricket - MCG

The Americans have some world class stadiums for their sports as well, but I don't know enough about US sports to judge. I did see some major 150,000 capacity motor speedway somewhere that looked cool tho.

My personal fave is Wembley simply cos I love football, and I can't wait to watch the beautiful game in the new Church of Football.
