Copied from a post on Reddit, the biggest temporary sports stadium in the world is being finished up in preparations for the "Eidgenössische Schwing- und Älplerfest" (national "Swiss Wrestling" championships).

The stadium holds 56,000 for this event in Zug, Switzerland.

Nussli does good work. They did the 27k temp stadium Empire Field in Vancouver for the Lions and Whitecaps years ago when BC Place was getting a new roof.

Bristol Raceway held a college football game a couple years back, though that was a 1/2 mile oval so much more suited for the event.

Eddie Hearn has revealed his extraordinary plan to bring elite boxing back to Britain - by staging championship fights in his back garden.

The promoter has exclusively disclosed to Sportsmail his intention to stage fight nights on four consecutive Saturdays in the 15-acre grounds of his Matchroom headquarters in Brentwood, Essex.

His £1million plan is to open with the all-Brit world title clash between Terri Harper and Natasha Jonas in mid-July, before closing with Dillian Whyte's WBC interim heavyweight title fight against Alexander Povetkin in the first or second Saturday in August.

Outlining his blueprint for boxing's return, which will see only 90 people on site at each fight because of Covid rules, Hearn told Sportsmail: 'Financially this will be painful for us but after the momentum we have worked so hard to build over the past 10 years, I'm not going to let boxing just dribble back. While other guys go with arenas and empty studios, ours will look very different.

The proposal, which is in its advanced stages, will see four cards of five fights each spread across a 28-day stretch. With a working title of Matchroom Fight Camp, the expenditure and the logistical exercise are significant amid the restrictions caused by the coronavirus.

On the British Pathe archive? Yes, I should've thought to look there.
