I'll just ignore the list and say that my favorite stadium is the RFK Stadium from the 80's.

I'm proud to mention Brisbane's brilliant Suncorp Stadium as without a doubt one of the world's best rectangular stadia. This opinion is shared by many who have watched a rugby/NRL, or football game, or played at, Suncorp Stadium. One of the most beautiful, and one of the best atmosphere's in world sport. Great location as well.

Thats a College Stadium for The University of Alabama Crimson Tide! Bryant-Denny Stadium, Capacity 92,000. They have more atmosphere there then the best soccer stadium anywhere on earth.

They look Un-cohesive because these stadiums have been added to since the 1900's. Colleges dont build a new stadium when they need more room, they add to it.



Is this Cohesive to you?





You know NOTHING about US stadiums.

haha omg... Dude you just cleaned up my arguement. Comparing that monstrosity at Alabama to Old Trafford (and an old picture of Old Trafford) is very misguided. Poor fella.

I wouldn't call either attractive for any reason, but that is just me.

I think this thread has gotten totally off topic. Its about an abstract sense of beauty, not who has better tradition, better fans or what ever other bs get flung around. Both of those teams have great tradition, tons of history, tons of fans and great atmosphere on gameday, but bring that stuff up where it belong, which sure as shit isn't here.

At this point this thread is little more than people posting pictures of the hometown stadium and talking up the club no matter how god-awful ugly the stadium in question may be.
I know beauty is subjective, and you can make a rational, well reasoned argument for anything, but make that argument in aesthetic terms, its not hard; "I love the curvatures of the Niigata stadium", or the Munich Olympiastadion has a stunning roof and is wonderfully integrated into the park", or "I love how overpowering the San Siro can be". And quite ruining a perfectly good thread.

Please get off your own D. Its a nice stadium, post some pictures, talk about why it looks great. If you only like it for sightlines and atmosphere talk about in its own thread, where that conversation belongs. This about the most BEAUTIFUL not the best or greatest atmosphere, ect.

What? Excuse me?

If youre going to try to have an argument, at least learn about what youre talking about.

There are plenty of stadiums all around the world that are uncohesive, you honestly you sound like an idiot.

You think that maybe theres just as much history at Alabama as there is at Old Trafford? Theres a good chance. Just because you have an extreme lack of knowledge of a sport doest mean that what you say isnt utter bullshit.
