There is also a new stadium currently under construction in Donetsk, Ukraine. It's a beauty:



There is also a video presentation of it on the site: http://shakhtar.com/cgi-bin/fc-sh/newstad.pl

My favourite European Stadiums (club stadium)

I am basing this on looks,capacity,executive capacity and Cleanliness.

For instance, Barcelona's Camp nou is nothing short of a cathedral, but it looks really sort of grotty and dusty.

England;

Ashburton Grove

Capacity; 60,000





Spain;

Estadio El Santiago Bernabeu

Capacity 82,000



Italy;

San Siro

Capacity 87,000




Portugal;

Estadio Do Dragoa

Capacity 52,000




Germany;

Auf Shalke Arena

Capacity 54,000 (All seater mode)



Netherlands;

Amsterdam Arena

Capacity 52,000

the MCG and Wembley are my top must visits, therefore they're in my top 10. I don't rank Lord's as a stadium, it's just a cricket ground. That Reliant place in Texas looks tops too. Anfield and Madison Square Garden deserve a mention but deeper picture reveals something less grand than the names.

My Top 10...

Hi everyone!

This is my first thread posted here so I thought I'd do something that gives you a bit of background about me. It's good to see there are lots of others out there with an interest in stadia that borders on the unhealthy!

Here are the ten biggest stadia that I've been inside of (capacity figures from worldstadiums.com):

1. [Old] Wembley Stadium, London, UK (capacity then: 80,000); 1991 Rugby League Challenge Cup Final (attendance: 73,532); and 1995 England v Columbia (attendance: 20,038)

[IMG]C:\Documents and Settings\Paul Bentham\Desktop\Wembley May 2000.bmpIMG]

2. Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin TX, USA (now DKR Stadium) (capacity then: around 80,000); visit to stadium not on matchday

[IMG]C:\Documents and Settings\Paul Bentham\Desktop\DKR STadium.bmp[/IMG]

[IMG]C:\Documents and Settings\Paul Bentham\Desktop\Millennium Stadium May 2003.bmp[/IMG]

5. Old Trafford, Manchester, UK (capacity: 68,174); Too many games to mention 1986-present. Most recent game: United v Blackburn (2006 Carling Cup Semi-Final, 2nd leg) (attendance: 61,637)

[IMG]C:\Documents and Settings\Paul Bentham\Desktop\OT 2001-5.bmp[/IMG]

6. Stadium of Light, Sunderland, UK (capacity: 49,000); Sunderland v United (2000 Worthington Cup 4th Round) (attendance: 47,543)

1. FedEx Field, Washington D.C. area - Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys, Attendance 91,000

2. Athens Olympic Stadium- Athletics 2004 Olympics, Attendance I believe was around 60,000 out of the 73,000 possible. It was during the day on a weekday so not big events going on.

3. RFK Stadium, Washington D.C. - Washington Nationals vs. Atlanta Braves, Attendance 47,000 out of 52,000

4. Karaiskaki Stadium, Athens Greece - Athens 2004 Olympics mens soccer quarter final, Italy vs. Mali, Attendance 29,000 out of 32,000

5. Various indoor events with the attendances ranging from 8,000-20,000. I cant remember or keep track.

Okay, sorry about the false start. You kinda got the idea anyway, but here's the full list with pics as originally intended. Thanks for the upload tip, btw.

Almost there!! Before you host those pics you must change them to jpeg's. Simply right-click the photo's icon on your PC, then select 'edit'. Then when it opens, go to file and select 'save as'. In the 'save as type' drop down menu box, change it to 'jpeg'. A new jpeg icon will appear on your PC and that's you - now host the jpeg.

Yea, they arent exactly magnificent pieces of architechture, usually they are paved tracks with grandstands built onto the sides rather than a true stadium structure. Bristol is like a Very large football stadium, the track itself is a half mile and there are always rumors that one day they will lay down turf on the infield and play a football game there. If they do it will likely be the University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech, both schools have huge followings in that area and when you combine the capacity of Tech's Lane Stadium (66,000) and UT's Neyland Stadium (104,000) you could easily fill Bristol.
