I wonder why you expect people to start building something when designs aren't chosen yet... Donetsk is not building the stadium specifically for Euro, they would have done it anyway.

Oh yes it does look cheap- but not everybody needs to build "classy looking" stadiums. In my opinion it is better than ANY stadium built or planned in the US- these are simply kitsch. And Donetsk, as much as it doesn't look too glorious, is quite different then anything else. Setting new standards in number of tiers (Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals- construction well exagerrated compared to capacity) and general construction size is nothing to look up to.

Dr. Mesofius- I honestly think Arena Baltycka will be far more attractive visually than Szachtar's stadium, but it's a personal taste matter (I didn't go for it because of my nationality, it could be some other stadium).

I wouldn't say it looks cheap at all, a little boring from the inside, but not cheap. The imbalance of the upper tier adds a little visual interest (as well as sightlines and probably acoustics for concerts), as does the legitimately elliptical roof. Its got the clean modern lines you'd expect (and maybe are getting sick of) but it has a somewhat unique look to it. The only knock I have on it is how shallow the lower tier appears to be, outside of that its a solid design inside (especially for large concerts) and out.

All these comments about how its not a super attractive arena are rather humoorous, as this will be one of the best stadiums in the world and the best in eastern Europe for many decades. Unless, of course, Dynamo Kyiv FC decides to stick it to Shahtar Donetsk FC by building a better arena in Kyiv.

Time for recent construction pics

Sorry for the OT, but since you mentionned Kijow- have you seen the proposed design for their design? I mean was it official? It was around 30k, rectangular shape and all stands covered.

No, I haven't. Noone from the ukrainian section here has seen it yet, it wasn't published, only the location was approved just recently. You are probably thinking about renovated Lobanovsky stadium in Kyiv, it has nothing to do with Euro 2012. There are many stadiums in the capital.

It’s just getting better, by the way which stadiums are going to be 5-star, as far as I know UEFA requirement for a 5-Star venue is 50 000 and in Poland only one stadium is planned to have capacity larger than that, Warsaw, but I did not know that it is going to be a 5-Star. As for second, Poznan. It is still an unapproved concept. Although it would be nice to have few 5-Star venues for Euro.

Stadion Slaski is the secound one.... its a reserve venue.

http://stadiony.net/project.php?p=58

About Warsaw National Stadium... the requirments for the competition is that the project applied for the competion must meet all requirements for a 5 star stadium.

Warsaw has promised us a stadium which will be one of the best in the world.

By the way, how is the stadium going to be used after Euro? I mean Legia is building it's own venue, and there is no other club in Warsaw that is even remotely capable of filling up such a stadium.

I thought it would be a football only venue, without race tracks.

Unfrotunatelly, it will have a race-track.

Masterpaul- what are you talking about?! There are almost no chances of a 4/5 star rating for Chorzow's Slaski Stadium...

Roof to be installed soon
02-07-2007 16:04:50

Last Friday they started to erect the roof trusses at the new 5-star Stadium. The works began in the southern part of the arena where the first, 55-meter long and 240-tones heavy, truss was installed.

Leonid Steblyanko, the structural engineer, told shakhtar.com that installation of this very truss demands more time and efforts than the next ones. All in all there will be 12 trusses fixed on stiffening cores: four twin and eight single ones.

Once tubular structural elements (one such block weighs about 100 tones) are installed between the main trusses, purlins will be mounted upon the upper parts of main trusses. Roof elements will be fixed on them.

It would be interesting to know, that in the southern part of the stadium, the roof cover will be 20 meters wide which will provide the pitch with sufficient amount of daylight.

As you know, the roof for the stadium was designed by the German company MERO. Technically seen, installing the roof is the most difficult job in a stadium construction or reconstruction process.

It is going to be an amazing stadium, by far the best in Eastern Europe.
