And so the total frack-up of the soon-to-be-ex-Gottlieb Daimler Stadium has begun.

And I am sticking with my opinion on the stadium's new shape. I hate it, the stadium's roof will not match the new stands behind the goals properly even if its extended, and there is nothing you can say to do to change my mind. They should have either completely demolished the stadium and built a new football-only stadium, or they should have built a new 45,000 seat stadium elsewhere in Stuttgart.

This stadium was sustainable before its redevelopment, and it will be an insustainable white elephant after its redevelopment. RIP, the good Gottlieb Daimier Stadium 1933-2009.

Yes, but then again less successful clubs have managed to build a new ground aswell. I guess theres just no willingness by the club to risk taking up a big loan, and the city seems to be equally sceptical when it comes to financing a new stadium.

Btw what's the exact capacity? 58K or 60K? I remember it was 58K in the thread title a few days ago.

18 bombs have been found under the pitch of the Arena.
The dud-bombs where droped by english bombers in the year 1944 while a bombing of the Mercedes Benz factories which are near to the stadium.

A team of specialists deactivated the bombs and the works at the Arena can go on.

That means people have been playing and watching football for over 70 years on top of 18 bombs? It was built in 1933! LOL

they find unexploded bombs from WW2 suprisingly regularly in London/the UK, it's not uncommon at all for this sort of thing to happen

18 just until now, they might find some more.

Interestingly there´s no hint for bombs on the pitch in this aerial, which was taken shortly before the end of WWII.

No they will not. I already said several times that the reconfigured Mercedes-Benz Arena will be a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad stadium.

No, the reconfigured Mercedes-Benz Arena will be a fantastic, comfortable, full-good, very good stadium.

Yeah IMO it has never been one of Germany's best, but removing the running track so the capacity is increased and football fans are properly served is a good thing. This is afterall primarily a football ground, not an athletics stadium.

Carrerra: Well, if it was that way, they should have left the lower tier alone and just added a second tier to the stadium.

And another thing: i hae Mercedez-Benz. Are they responsible for this bad restructuration?

Because they wanted to pull the bottom bowl towards the pitch so it would hug it in a rectangular shape. As someone who has sat at the ends of oval cricket stadiums for football matches, it sucks being that far away. It makes it so much better and basically, the athletics track made football watching bad.

I very much doubt a car company would have that much influence in the stadium reconstruction, but that's me. Probably got more important things on their plate right now like trying to sell cars.

I guess football-specific stadiums have to be a comfort zone for everybody here at SSC, huh?
