It's not a roof, unless it's like this.

as Mike said, its not a roof

its an outdoor stadium, and on some days some seats will get wet

so what? you do what we do at just about every other stadium and don the poncho and keep on cheering

what is with this chronic fear of rain people have?

Stadiums with high roofs never work very well. I.e. Bubble dome, Sydney Football Stadium.

JFYI after the initial teething issues, reviews of AAMI Park have been pretty good - most I've spoken to prefer it to Etihad

Mate,you're talking about the very first event there,when things weren't quite finished.These problems have been ironed out long ago

You mean like ANZ Stadium and the SFS in Sydney and Parc des Princes and Stade de la Beaujoire in France?

And Stade de France (except for the roof), New Stade Vélodrome, Stade Charléty, Wembley, Man. City Stadium, Emirates Stadium, Aviva Stadium, Estadio do Dragao, Estadio Alvalade, Estadio Da Luz (except for the roof), Estadio do Algarve, AWD Arena, Gottlieb Daimler Stadion, Zentralstadion, Ullevi Stadion, Durban Stadium, Beijin Olympic, Hong Kong Stadium, Quest Field, most of Japanese & Korean Stadiums etc etc

As a matter of fact, we can find that kind of design everywhere around the world !

e.g. Portugal, England, Germany, Australia, Japan, USA:

Teams present at this years UCI Road World Championships in Geelong which started today include strong teams from
Australia,Great Britain,Spain,Russia,Netherlands ,Belgium and the USA while South Korea and Japan also have teams but aren't expected to achieve much while Qatar won't be competing

Fairly representative of the chances of all WC bidding Nations

Pictures from 01 October2010:










Things to note
* green seats almost complete in southern most section
* concrete for the centre of the lower bowl ready to be poured,
* work has commenced on the 4th roof bubble(#1 being most southern section)
* what the hell is with those white behind posts! don't SACA know we use Red behind posts in this state..the AFL strikes again - won't be long before they get their wish and remove all traces of SANFL individuality - "AFL-SA" is on their agenda allegedly

The UCI Mens Roadrace is currently on at the moment.Having started in Melbourne the riders have now reached Geelong.The weather is fantastic and the crowd is estimated at 100,000.The helicopters have been showing off fantastic shots of the beautiful landscape of Geelong and its waterfront in what is a brilliant summary of what Geelong would offer as a hosting city.The course travels past the proposed WC stadium,potential fan fest locations as well as the path of the fan walk

157,000 turned up to the streets of Geelong to watch the cycling world champs, they have proved that they can stage a big event so give them a stadium! That's almost bigger than the population...

...which makes me slight dubious about the accuracy of the claim. How do they count the crowd?

Crowds in public places are routinely grossly over-estimated.


Of all the ovals, Geelong's is probaby the best suited due to it being so narrow, but seats at the ends would be a very long way from the goals.

Yep I was there as well-up at Montpellier Park on the big hill.
Been working on site for the last 10 days.The rest of the crew tell me it was incredible the amount of folks right around.
Today was a hive of activity with workers everywhere removing grandstands,marquees,the barriers etc.

If there's any budding photoshop artists on this forum/thread, would they be willing to do a mock-up of all the Australian stadia that would need to be reconfigured for soccer? I would love to see these ones done if anyone's interested:

The WACA WA,
Subiaco Oval WA,
Perry Lakes Stadium WA,
New Adelaide Oval SA,
Football Park SA,
Docklands Vic,
Kardinya Park Vic,
MCG Vic,
SCG NSW,
QE II Sport and Athletic Centre QLD,
The Gabba QLD,

and also these three Kiwi stadia which I think should be used in the bid too:
Eden Park Auckland NZ
National Stadium Wellington NZ
Lancaster Park Christchurch NZ

Cheers,
Matty

Mate all of those stadia(the ones in the bid book - so no Perry Lakes[trg venue?], no WACA , no Footy Park, no QEII or Gabba) have pictures/artists representations in the bid documents, google "Australia bid 2022" and you'll see them.
As for including NZ in the bid..no chance..no slight on our kiwi cuz-bro's;-) but they're in a different confederation to Australia...it just won't happen. I hope they seek acceptance into Asia from Oceania, then Mohamed bin Hamman could stop bleating about the Welly Phoenix in the A-League, there might be potential to expand into Christchurch and back to Auckland even, plus it would be good for the All Whites to play more meaningful games than just a bunch of islanders in the Pacific.
