Hey guys there is already a thread on this stadium. No need for another. Look it up.
Old ones for comparison (pre 1973 renovation)
The relationship between the Yankees and Manchester United lasted 1 year before it was broken off. The Yankees have no relationship with any footy teams at the moment.I understand that the Yankees have some kind of marketing tie up with Manchester United. Given the current relationship between Manchester United and Real Madrid over Judas Ronaldo ($150M - WTF?) I doubt the Yanks would be changing their name anytime soon.
I quite like the new design. Not sure about the price tag but land will eat your budget fast in NYC.
The current stadium does not have 70k seats. I believe it is only 57k. Also the original stadium seated over 80k I believe.This new stadium is much smaller than the original (70,000 -> 52,000) and while the it might be designed like the old Yankee Stadium, it's going to feel more like any other new stadium. Where are the overhangs and the roof? It's not the best for views, but it's the character. Where are the massive outfield bleachers? Gone and set back further. Maybe I will be completely wrong, I really need to visit the new Yankee Stadium to be sure, but right now I don't like it.
Oh well, in time this new stadium will hopefully create it's own character.
