Lech Poznań stadium

2006 + roof for IV stand


2007 + II stand


2008 + 3rd tier of the II stand


2008/2009 + deconstruction of I and III stand.

Although the capacity oficially was 115000 there were atleast half a dossen games played when the attendance was above that, The El Classico record I think is just below 119.000 and the stadium record attendance is 120.000.

i think 2 tiers was the max. at the other stand (in the 1950s etc)
So instead of a 3rd tier they enlarged the 2nd tier of the main stand which had enough space behind it.

Subiaco Oval, Perth, Western Australia, Australia
Opened in 1908

1920's


1950


1968



1968
(this stand was supposed to be the first stage of a complete wrap around of the oval to seat 70 000+. It covered 1/20 of the perimeter and seated 5000. Typical of the cheap nature of West Australian governments, it remained the only part. Today it desperately needs replacing, it even has signs on the walls stating that it does not meet current building codes and standards.)




1981



1996


2000's
(after a undersized redevelopement which had 9000 less seats that report recommendations from 1993)
Still a shithole and a political bog.

As you can see, they changed the direction of the court because the sun would get in the eyes of shooters. Not something you see every day for basketball!

Notre Dame Stadium from this



to this



You can see how they built the extra ~30K seats around the stadium with the aisle. I personally believe they should do another restructuring and make it up to about 100K, but that's just me.

No article links handy, but the Green Bay Packers (NFL) are now considering another seating expansion at Lambeau Field. The added seats would be above and behind the south end zone and bring it up to just over 80K.

That would look a little odd, but they would have no trouble filling it. Just seems like the clean unified single bowl has been its thing for a long time now (yes I am aware of its original layout and subsequent renovations). I always wondered why they didn't go bigger in the last renovation; I suppose money, and keeping the suites a little closer, though 80,000-90,000 a game would be no problem.
