The gelredome has an ugly facade imo. And the tribunes are not looking good too imo.
And the Kuip doesn't have a nice facade too imo. Most dutch stadia don't have facades or are just ugly. Like the Philips stadium, it looks like it's a mix of three stadiums.

And to compare the netherlands with Morocco is also wrong, especially if you know that the Netherlands is a much richer country, so it would have enough money to spend on stadia. Another point is that Morocco not my country is. I was born in the netherlands and I live in the netherlands. I'm dutch. En nog veel meer etc. etc.
But if you really want to some Moroccan stadia, her you go:

Moulay Abdellah stadium, Rabat. 52.000 seats





Mohammed V stadium, Casablanca. 67.000 seats


I don't like these stadiums either but at least they are large ;)
And here are some aproved and already u/c Morocan stadia:

Stade de Meknes, 45.000. Construction just started


Stade de El Jadida, 45.000. Completed 2009


Stade d'Agadir, 45.000. Construction started in 2003, ready in 2007


Here comes the real work:
La Grande Stade de Casablanca, 95.000. Construction started in July 2004
The Grand Stade de Casablanca will serve as Morocco’s national stadium. Upon its completion in march of 2009, the Grand Stade will be the most modern and luxurious stadium in Africa.


Stade de Tangiers, 69.000. Construction started in 2003


Stade de Marakech, 70.000. Constructon started in 2003



I don't think The Netherlands will beat these stadia in the next 20 years ;). So stadiumfuture, please keep your narrow minded thoughts in your head. ;)
all those stadiums are fucking ugly, this tread is over stadiums in the netrherlands, not about those stadiums.

Although I agree on that one, this is not the reason for UEFA to choose Rotterdam as venue for the final. In Rotterdam, they like to tell so, but it is not true.

UEFA was very interested in modern stadia like the Arena and Gelredome (and still is) , and it was commonly expected that the final would come to Amsterdam, but Rotterdam simply offered a higher bid than Amsterdam. An offer they could not refuse...

uhm maybe also because de kuip = FOOTBALL and the kuip has a bigger capacity?

The UEFA doesn't give a crap about that. And the arena has a larger capacity. Especially with the amount of empty sections at de Kuip at big matches.

The only thing UEFA cares for is money. Therefore it was expected that the EURO 2000 final was played in Amsterdam.

After all, modern stadia like the Arena or Gelredome are better money-generating-machines than old stadia like De Kuip. The commercial and media facilities are better and the same can be said about the catering.

But the city of Rotterdam wanted to pay much more (up to three times, I heard) than Amsterdam for that final. That made changing their preference a lot easier for UEFA.

Nothing concrete yet, but in 2020 there should be a new stadium as de Kuip will have grown to be too old by that time. It might get build a bit earlier if the Netherlands succeed to have the 2018 World Cup played in NL.

Latest news is that the most likely location is Varkenoord, just across the road from de Kuip.

@ Soufian

Ofcourse Dutch stadiums are small in general when you think of 'm in the line of Bernabeu, San Siro, Camp Nou, Wembley, Stade de France. But do you really think that if Spain, France or Italy had the same amount of people as the Netherlands has, their stadiums would be a lot bigger? No way!

I think they would even be smaller, considering the Netherlands has one of the highest spectator rates in Europe. SC Heerenveen is thinking of expanding to 28000. The city of Heerenveen itsself has only 41000 people.

And saying the Kuip has an ugly facade? That proves to me that you don't know shit about football or football in relation to history.

carfentanyl, you can say Westfalenstadion with this big stadiums too.
The spectator average is attached over 75,000 and sometimes 83.000 come and it sells of. That´s europes best average,and with the stadiums n berlin,munich it´s maybe the 2nd best after england in germany.

Ehhh... What are you talking about? I don't understand what your point is. Or are you just 'upset' that I didn't mention Westfalen Stadium in my list of big ones?

We were talking about beautiful stadiums too, that's why I didn't mention it. Who thinks of Westfalen when you talk about Europe's top stadiums? It's an average stadium, only the capacity isn't. And I even doubt it has the biggest average of Europe...
