There is Category A and B. One is for venues below 40k and the other for venues above 40k

2006 yes. It seems like Arsenal have been playing there for years!

In terms of architectural acheivement then the Bird's Nest really has to win in 2008. Is it the most iconic stadium since the Munich Olympic Stadium?

I do like that one. Both in terms of the outside looking nothing like a stadium, and because they've embraced the idea of sitting behind the endzone, something which often seems to be ignored in the US.

I thought it was SkyScraperCity.

The initial post talks of stadiums not football/soccer stadiums.

I like the exterior. Its so unique compared to most modern stadiums. Looks like a Giant field house or airplane hangar. Its design style that would fit in a city known for airplanes (like Seattle..... weeps to self)

Beijing by a mile as posted by a few others in cat a. And also a big bias as its one of my stadiums! Cat b is decidely more difficult but would have to go for slavia prauge for simply its looks and its not just a 4 sided bowl- cannot comment on function i never went there.
