This is unbelievable! Do you know if Estadio Quisqueya has pink neon lights on the foul poles like Maduro Stadium?

It looks like 10,000 or 11,000. On wikipedia it says 7,300 permenant + 3,400 temporary so around 10,000 for basketball, which sounds believable.

Really lovely little arena with a ton of history in the college game though.

Bologna, Italy. Built in 1927, although it seems a hybrid of art-deco plus something else?

Glenferrie Oval, once Hawthorn AFL clubs home ground - not even training ground any more

The Art deco Michael tuck stand is a listed building

image hosted on flickr






Didnt stop us celebrating the AFL premierrship htere in 2008 !



Even though it was a VFL venue up till 74, today the wings are so swuished it doesnt pass as a ground for local footy ! Junior footy, athletics ore even a rectangualar field game seem to be its future - wish the council would pull their finger out though - the surface is atrocious
