Yep. They demolished the first 3 rows of the west stand (the stand you can see on TV)
83,000 -> 81.264
Later they reduced it again to 80.708, now it is 80,552

because it had terracing. it puts termporary seats in for international games, reducing the capacity to under 70,000. Although i think the full capacity has gone down from 83,000 to 81,000 recently.... don't quote me though!

Mr. Mit posted a nice overview of the evolution of the Philips Stadion of PSV Eindhoven last year. I've taken the liberty of translating it.

1912: Ground with Philips factories in the background.


1913: Celebration of victory in the Napoleonic wars 100 years earlier. This event is seen as the official founding of PSV, although a football team consisting of Philips employees had been around longer.


1917:


1919:


1963:


1980:


1988: Reconstruction of the South Stand.


1988:


1988:


1988: New South Stand finished.


1993:


1995: Construction of the new North Stand.


1995:


1995: South Stand.


1997:


1999: Filling in first corners.


2000:


2002:


2005:


2006: Preparations for a concert.


2008: Dug Outs.


2008: Bringing the South Stand up to modern standards.

^ the roof over the corner sections is a much more modern design. Do they plan to make the whole roof look like this eventually?

US college stadiums have some of the worst patchwork additions and create some asymetrical stadiums.

Lane Stadium (V Tech) 1972

a few additions later


Kyle Field, can you spot any additions?


Beaver Stadium

This is correct. If you look, you can see that the panelling goes the whole way around the stadium.

IMHO piecemeal stadium construction adds character, and creates the uniqueness that modern stadium design hasn't got...

Here we go...

(on the new San Siro in 1955)

"It was certainly perfect for viewing football, and although it never quite held the promised 100,000 - despite being hailed as the Stadio dei Centomila (how the Italians love to exaggerate figures) - the eventual capacity of around 82,000 made it at least on par with Italy's other recently completed major venue, the Olympic Stadium in Rome."

1. just because simon inglis said it in a book, doesn't make it true.
2. there have been many OFFICIAL attendances greater than 82,000 @ the san siro pre italia 1990!

To stop the Italians from pissing on you when you go there as an away supporter.....

They are very clever though, they managed to get round it by pissing in bottles and throwing them at us, a remarkable display of evolution.

They should've just roofed the two-tier San Siro. Better to be full every game.

Capacity of the 2 tiers is 60,529.
Currently perfect capacity for both teams
But 10-20 years ago too small.
AC Milan average
1987–88 73,284
1988–89 73,209
1990–91 77,488
1991–92 77,868
1992–93 75,830

different eras, that was when going to the game and watching it on telly weren't considered the same to a lot of people

Basically italian football is going through an attendance slump, it's only 25 years ago the league had a near 40,000 average, they just need new stadiums to get the families in and sort out how the games are shown on telly and you'd get good crowds again!!!

English football had it, when we won the league in 1989 we averaged around 36,000, only liverpool had a higher average at 38,000, highbury was redeveloped into a 38,500 seater and then boom time, and the stadium was too small, even now at 60,000 the stadium is too small

Basiccally give it time...
