* The suspended ceiling of the roof is made of Canadian cedar, whose age ranges from thirty to one hundred years.

That second picture is not Stade des Alpes. I think it is Stade Communale in Toulouse.

Concerning roof and cladding I prefer Stade des Alpes. It reminds me of London's Crystal Palace or the Royal Glasshouses in Brussels. On the other hand, the bowl of the stadium in Dniepropetrovsk looks more impressive, though not very original. So my vote goes to Stade des Alpes.

Similar issues as for the other semi-final for me here. Ljudski looks far better from the outside, but I quite like the interior of Eden, with the assimetric stands, inclining roof and wood covering (similar to Letzigrund in Zurich). I don't know. I need more pictures of both stadiums (especially of the inside of Ljudski VRT).

It's interesting, by the way - FC St.Gallen had basically an identical main stand like Ljudski in it's former stadium Espenmoos.



Espenmoos was not modernised like Ljudski but instead St.Gallen built a new stadium also finished in 2008 but it dropped already out of this competition, so in terms of that they'd better simply should have modernised their stadium.

The main stand of Espenmoos has been preserved, btw. All other stands have been removed and an additional football pitch built. Espenmoos is now used as a ground for amateur football.

I noticed that before: my home team played against Sankt-Gallen in the 2000 UEFA Cup 2nd round (before being eliminated by Barcelona). One year after Nastja Ceh was transferred from Maribor, that's how I discovered the similarity. But, to stay a bit on topic, I think I slightly prefer the stand in Maribor though.

The list doesn't contain all of my personal favourites either. Tastes differ, and besides that maybe some of the semi finalists got some more "home/friendly support"... (I randomly think of sms voting and the Eurovision Song Contest)

Dnipro is definitely a worthy winner. A fantastic stadium for its size.

the sun light coming in from the large hole in the rough is making the camera darken the image so the contrast is not to bright, thus creating darker dark sections.

What is the difference between the two then except the colours of the seats?

The shape of the roof seen from the air and the way the roof connects to the ground are different.

And Ljudski VRT doesn't have pillars in the main stand. A significant difference and probably a consequence of the slightly different roof structure...

By the way, I still didn't manage to choose between Ljudski's roof and look from the outside (especially at night) and Eden's inside look and atmosphere...
