Some people here need to get some fresh air and step outside and see there is this continent called North America with great stadiums and arena's. Go check them out sometime and broaden your horizons.

Plenty of US stadiums have been mentioned in this thread, I'd say the reverse is actually true on this forum with most US posters commenting on nothing but stadiums in their home country.

That is infact when old trafford will have a 76,000 capacity- Man United's Old trafford would have to have a 100,000 capacity before it could create similar revenue; taking into account the proportion of corporate seats to joe blogg seats and whether malcolm glazer will increase ticket prices or Man Uniteds success changes drastically for good or bad.

Its design is elegant;- the roof slopes down to trap any noise made by the crowd, (Lets hope the herd ultras return and make noise over the silence of the plastics!! LOL) The biggest and largest ring of the stadium is the top one and curves up at the sides of the bowl giving a more intimidating effect ( the upper ring holds 28,000 ) - this design makes oppostion players feel enlosed in hatred otherwise known as a cauldren effet.
The only reason Ashburton Grove will be making more money is that they charge about £1000 for cheap season ticket and United charge around £500-600. If Old Trafford put its most of its season tickets upto £1000 a year it would make more than Ashburton Grove.

Also all the new extra seats at Old Trafford about 8000 seats are all executive seats. So your looking at 8000 seats at about £1,200. Also the way United and Aresnal are playing they wont be selling out there grounds.

@CMC,

You've got to be kidding about the Amsterdam Arena. Ajax can't play decent football in it. Its dreadful acoustics ruined U2's last concerts. Grass won't grow in it... The Amsterdam Arena is really not good for anything. It's nice looking, but not spectacular looking. It certainly doesn't belong in the 10 most modern or most beautiful or most functional stadiums in the world. Mind you, I'm an Ajax supporter.

I must concur with Perth4life3 and ask where is the MCG in this list?

Or Maracana Stadium in Rio which holds 200,000 odd (albeit not in air conditioned comfort)?

Or the LA Colluseum, where Guns and Roses filmed so many of their stadium rock videos?

While it fills me with Aussie pride, I am surprised so many have nominated Telstra
Stadium. From what I have heard from mates it is a shite place to actually watch a game, crowd and atmosphere aside. Comments???

Ashburton Grove = 60,200 (all seated) capacity; could be expanded though (unlikely).

PLEASE DO NOT CONSULT EARLIER IMPRESSION PICTURES OF THE STADIUM AS IT IS INACCURATE ABOUT THE SHAPE AND SIZE OF IT, THE APEX OF THE STADIUM REACHES 142 ft.

what the hell is that Cardinals Stadium that you had number 1?? I've been to Phoenix and I've never seen/heard of that stadium. I assume it is something they are considering building in the future, but I would find it a little hard to believe that Phoenix would build the Cardinals a new stadium because they have historically had a lousy football team and the fan turnout is usually low.

Millennium Stadium might be great aesthetically, but try going to a game there. Poor leg room, bare concourses, you really begin to understand how it was so cheap.
