You'd be looking at a capacity of about 80,000 at Celtic Park with that redevelopment - the main stand only holds some 8,000 supporters, whereas the North Stand holds nearly 27,000. I'm not sure if the North Stand capacity includes the North West and North East corners, or if they are included in the capacity of the West and East stands? If it's the former, I'd say you're looking at a capacity of about 85,000. If not, probably about 79,000.

If the main stand were to be rebuilt, it wouldn't have the small pillars near the top that the South Stand does - they were necessary because of the proximity of the cemetery, whereas there's plenty of space behind the main stand...

Charlie, I believe that the pillars in the North Stand were never 'necessary' but were put there to save money during the redevelopment of the stadium. Certainly, the overhangs at the rear of the North and South stands at Murrayfield, which were built shortly before Celtic Park's redevelopment are larger than the one necessary at Celtic Park. Not that it changes the point you make - just a little note of pedancy.

Not the entire stadium is 75 yrs old though in 1994 the last major facelift happend. this also when they discovered the metal fatigue. A new stadium is planned for 2014 but considering this is the netherlands it might take a lot longer.

as it was in 1975



really old picture of the kuip, look at the cars

I never realised the "stadion feyenoord" lettering was so old! I assumed it was only put there in around the 1970s or 1980s!

I like Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg. Especially when thinking that it was built as early as 1958. It was expanded in 1995 in a way that kept the wave-shape.

1. Munich olympic-truly a masterpiece, years ahead of its time.
2. Old wembley-mainly because of history rather than design, but those towers were iconic and it was a crime not to replicate them.
3. San siro-one of the best old stadium re workings.
4. Hong kong-first and still the best of the D shaped rooves, location awesome and incredible atmosphere when full.
5. New shakhtar donetsk-not finished yet but what a beauty!

1. Lord's Cricket Ground, St. John's Wood, London. Simply gorgeous, in a stunning location.
2. Adelaide Oval, architecturally pure, unfortunately they have caved into pressure and put in light towers.
3. Newlands, Cape Town cricket ground, set in the shadow of Table Mountain
4. Nurburgring, the original 20 odd km's of certain death for drivers in rural Germany.
5. Royal Ascot race course.

I have seen it in person




The history of the Olympiastadion Berlin as a nazi relic was only 9 years long, the stadiums history as a sports venue in the free and democratic city of Berlin was more than 60 years long. The British Forces protected the stadium after the war from demolition by the russians, who destroyed a lot of nazi relics in Berlin.
Remember, Werner March, the architect of this masterpeace of architecture, was a well known architect in democratic Germany before the rise of the nazis.
I know, the 1936 Olympic Games were a propaganda show of the nazis, but the games had some unforgetable moments of sports history, like the first torch relay in olympic history and the triumph of Jesse Owens:

Owens was cheered enthusiastically by 110,000 people in Berlin's Olympic Stadium and later ordinary Germans sought his autograph when they saw him in the streets. Owens was allowed to travel with and stay in the same hotels as whites, an irony at the time given that blacks in the United States were denied equal rights. After a New York ticker-tape parade in his honor, Owens had to ride the freight elevator to attend a reception for him at the Waldorf-Astoria.

The german people loved Jesse Owens an he was a friend of his german counterpart on the track, Lutz Long.



The pillars for the roof support were a tribute to the stadiums status of national heritage because they were not allowed to built the new roof above the gap in the stadium. The track is absolutely nessecary for athletic events.

The 1936 Games were dedicated to Berlin in 1930, 3 years before the nazis came to power in Germany.
Carl Diem was the president oft the OC from the beginnig, and the torch relay was his idea.
Diem wasn't a nazi, he wasn't a member of the nazi patry nsdap. When Hitler was involved with the organization of the games, he wanted to fire Diem, but the IOC protected Carl Diems position.
I don't want to gloryfy the nazi games, but I think the torch relay was a good idea.

I am fully aware of the history of the stadium, and it's shortcomings, as are most people on this forum.
