It looks pretty sweet. The Rugby 7's look awesome there.

i rate the new Green Point Stadium will kill any other stadium, just because of the geography that surrounds this stadium... from Table Mountain, to the Atlantic Ocean, to the sunsets... what a stadium

I never liked Green point, it's shape and it's facade, Durban's and Soccer city are far, far better and more recognizeable

San Siro vs Camp Nou!

Hi there!
I have been on many great stadiums, but i find two of them above all (especialy the atmosphere). One is San Siro in Milan, the other Camp Nou in Barcelona.
Which one do you think is the greatest?

those of you who love the Braga stadium should look at some CFL stadiums, such as the ones in Ottawa, Regina, and Winnipeg

We had that design first

Really? And did you also have one side of the stadium supported by a rocky mountain, or a carved rock wall at one end? Didn't think so...

There are plenty of stadiums with stands just on each side of the pitch, we don't love braga stadium because of that.

Thats a cool stadium!
The inside (roof) is not great. The effect is ruined by the speakers etc hanging

Although I understand why it wouldn't be listed in the top ten (or even top twenty-five), Lambeau Field deserves some recognition as the U.S.'s most history-steeped NFL stadium. It really is a beautiful facility.

And for the record, I would love more than almost anything else to see a soccer game at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds. I've never been to Australia, but the stadium looks absolutely incredible.

For me first thing that comes to mind when I see a really cool or a brand new stadium is what it would be like if Rolling Stones, Springsteen or other great rock act sold out the joint. The (old) Wembley was amazing concert venue both athmosphere and sound quality. Places like Amsterdam Arena, Toronto Sky Dome have great ammenities but bad sound quality. Most of my visits to big arenas and stadiums occur during concerts as opposed to sporting events. Donbas stadium looks really good, I doubt they solved acustics issues. The old "Horseshoue" stadium in Phoenix used to be really good venue.

Anyone else been to a concert where the sound quality was exceptionally good/bad and where?

That would be rather off topic to really get into that, but it's an interesting question which stadia are good for concerts and which are not. Why don't you just go ahead and open a new thread with it?

You must be kidding? Every concert I ever saw at Wembley was awful in terms of sound.

Personally, I'm very much a stadiums for sport kind of person. That is mainly because I like gigs to be in sweaty 500 person venues and not arenas!
