Desperately in need of renovation. There's a nice video on Facebook about stadiums then and now. It shows what stadiums use to look like and the post-renovation look. If we did something like that to Azadi it would be awesome.
They shouldn't touch Azadi unless to maintain it. What makes Azadi, Azadi, is the concrete hallways, steep stands, and the view of mountains. If they add a roof or anything it will no longer feel or be THE Azadi we love and everyone fears
That is a good suggestion, it would increase the capacity to around 90,000 as well.
I think the best case scenario for Azadi in 15-20 years becomes that Esteghlal and Persepolis both move out and build their own stadiums and Azadi becomes like Wembley or Saint Denis, where it is only used for Cup Finals and Team Melli games.
azadi stadium went a quick 1 month facelift thanks to the force from AFC, which required certain updates for the champions league final between persepolis and kashima (nov 10)
here are some photos
major repainting, new seats for the VIP area, new lighting in hallways and renovated entrance area, renovations of the media and suites, some treatments to the grass, cleaning of the seats and concrete and new gates and also a new platform for medal/trophy ceremony
