Has anyone got pics of African stadiums? Especially a pic of the national stadium of Zambia I could use.

Estadio da Cidadela, Luanda
Capacity:60,000



Should be destroyed in the future because of its deteriorating condition. New 61,000-seat sports park would replace it as the national stadium of Angola.

This Abuja stadium is very modern and beautiful. I especially like the color of the seats and its general design.

The Stadium is the default home of the Super Eagles. However a decent amount of the team's matches are played in poorer venues for strategic reasons. World Cup qualifiers and African Nations Cup qualifiers are frequently played there.

The Stadium occasionally hosts teams of the Nigerian Premier League.

The Stadium is has been used for hosting international events like the U-20 World Cup and 2007 Volleyball World Youth Championship and for the chance to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games 2018 World Cup as well as the 2012 Olympic Games.

Although the stadium has an extensive portfolio of events, in recent times the Stadium has been of less importance, due to the fact that International Events are seasonal and other Venues of similar Technicality have been built in other parts of the country.

Africa has the same problem as Latin America with regards to stadiums. I find the idea of a track field stadium so unappealing for someone watching fooball. When your far from the action an element in the atomosphere is dampened. African and Latin American supporters are far more passionate than Europeans but the conditions and quality of stadiums is what lets us down. Hopefully South Africa can lead the way in not only creating modern facilities (in the form of all seaters and over all quality architecture) but bringing the fans closer to the action.

I don't oppose Abuja's national stadium since their planning on hosting the commonwealth games having a multi purpose main facility is a must. Lagos for example shouldn't have its stadium with a trackfield. British style is the way to go close to the pitch.

ps. Look at why Boca Junior's Bombonera is the most intimidating football ground.

^^ The Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos, isn't a Football stadium, ad neither is the Surulere Stadium. Both of these stadiums are Multi Purpose stadiums, hence they would be inefficient if they didn't have a track field.

The Nigerian Football Association, recently announced that they plan to build new state of the art stadiums for each team in the Nigerian Premier League. Those stadiums when complete would be football stadiums.

The Teslim Balogun Stadium, is used for athletics events, such as the Mobil Track and field event, and potentially the All Africa Games.

I mean it's not as if Old Trafford, or Stamford Bridge is used for hosting the Olympics, so obviously the stadiums wouldn't have the need for a Track field. The same goes for the "Bombonera" which you made reference to.

^^The Teslim Bagolun Stadium has a 20,000 capacity, so it is too small to serve as the main stadium for the All-Africa Games. Is the Surelere Stadium even falling into disrepair?

20,000? I believe it is 35,000.

It was 20,000 before it was completed this year.

Here is another Picture BTW.


At 35,000 it could still serve as a secondary stadium for an event like the All Africa Games. The event is usually hosted with more than one stadium. The Teslim Balogun stadium is awaiting FIFA, CAF and Olympic listings

Ahh okay, so the fields can't be used for football? I hope the NFA has alot of money to spend because building some 10 new stadiums doesn't come cheap. Africa in genneral needs more European style stadiums, fans close to the pitch.
