NO Parking. 100% of the crowd travels to the ground for free on buses and trains. Has a built in bus station and linkway to rail station
Close to the CBD & infamous local pubs
Seating is close to the field and stands are steep. Hardly a bad seat in the ground
Stadium looks good from the outside as it was designed to blend into the urban environment surrounding it and also the Queensland style of architecture
Has a wicked atmosphere.
Has a highly recommended reputation and is arguably the best modern stadium constructed in australia.



Firstly, it sticks out like a sore thumb.

Secondly, you can't compare this to stadiums like Telstra stadium in Sydney, or the MCG in Melbourne. Both have hosted massive events, like the Olympics and the Commonwealth games. Both stadiums have to be 'top notch' to do so.

Needs a fix up, but it still stands out from the crowd 32 years after the Summer Olympics. Is that an alien space ship that just landed?

They should creat a soccer team in Montreal and use Olympic Stadium for it.
"Olympique de Montreal": will be the second OM !

Montreal already has a soccer team called the Montreal Impact. They are building a soccer stadium right next to Olympic Stadium. I believe it has just been completed.

Olympic Stadium is too big for soccer. They can fill it for Canadian football, but not soccer. They did get 45,000 for U-20 WC, but the Impact would have trouble attracting crowds that large.

new Shakhtar stadium in Donetsk

The stadium design and its interior arrangement will meet all official UEFA and FIFA requirements for 5-star stadiums. This will enable the new 'Shakhtar' stadium to apply for hosting UEFA and FIFA finals and be included into the list of stadiums accredited for hosting the most important national competitions.



Wednesday 8th June 2005 was a special day for the Project and for the Project Team. The first significant Works Package began on site! This follows the smaller contracts awarded in the last few months to local contractors to erect fencing around the site and to remove trees within the boundary. This work has been largely completed.

The latest contract is much more exciting for the Club and the supporters. In construction terms, it is called “Enabling Works” and involves carrying out site clearance works and the removal of soil from the site. This means that over the coming weeks, the level of activity in Leninsky Komsomol Park will increase significantly. The company undertaking the work is Osnova Solsif, one of a number of Ukrainian companies who bid for the contract.

Every effort will be taken to ensure that the works cause as little disruption as possible in and around the Park but everyone is asked to take special care to ensure the safety of all those visiting the Park and working there.

Simultaneously, the design of the stadium is moving forward. The initial Concept Design has now been developed into an 800 page document providing much greater detail of the design, layout and technical engineering aspects of the stadium. This is now under review with the Club's representatives and officials. Architect Eugene Uys from ArupSport is in Donetsk this week for detailed discussions. The stadium is being designed to ensure that it qualifies for UEFA 5-star accreditation and UEFA are consulted on a regular basis regarding a range of issues including facilities for players, fans, disabled groups, media, hospitality and parking. In addition, the architects are speaking directly with the Ukrainian authorities to ensure that the design complies with national building codes.

Shortly, we shall be submitting a full set of documents as our Proekt submission to UkrInvest Expertiza in Kiev and Donetsk. These documents explain in great detail the size, scale and complexity of the new stadium and the impact it will have on local services, utilities and the environment. Much time has gone into their preparation.

Site clearance work will continue during the summer and later in the year, with the site prepared, the task of setting the foundations will begin.

The company's chief architect Jay Parrish developed new 'Shakhtar' stadium. 'ArupSport' has long and successful history of the stadium projects designing. Its projects have been implemented in England, Spain, Italy, Germany and Kuwait. At present, Jay Parrish is successfully completing the project design of the Olympic stadium in Beijing, China.

Who the hell are you to be telling anyone that you can't compare Suncorp to Telstra Stadium or the MCG? Suncorp Stadium is by far the best rectangular sports stadium in the country & will remain so for a fair while yet. Just because the other 2 have hosted an olympics &/or commonwealth games doesn't make them better stadiums. Did you even read the thread title before you made your comment?

Yes I did, but did you read yours? Your reply makes little to no sense.

It might be the best RECTANGLE stadiums in the country, but there's no way that it's the best.

Nice stadiums! looks like Maracanã is mainly used for football games but why it's so round? They could put more seats on both sides of the field.

I've always wondered that about Maracanã. Why doesn't it have more seats along the sidelines? Is it a safety issue due to possible crowd violence??
