I would like some help in creating this thread.

Basically, I want to have here a compendium of what was done in terms of stadiums, in the last World Cups...

so we can have a visual representation of how much was done in terms of stadiums in the last World Cups.

Stadiums build brand new or in place of previous stadiums that were completely demolished.

Stadiums renovated, and how much they were renovated? With photos and maybe also with descriptions of what was done.


Lets keep this thread restricted to 2014, 2010, 2006, 2002 and 1998... which was when FIFA standarts really had a "jump" of what was accepted or not.

I mean... the huge american 1994 Stadiums wouldn´t even be accepted, completely roofless as they were, by new standarts.

Example:

Maracanã:

around 2007




Renovation for 2014: upper tier partially rebuilt, lower tier completely demolished and rebuilt closer to the pitch. Concrete roof completely destroyed and rebuilt. Pitch lowered a few meters (to allow lower tier approximation without the angle being too shallow).

stages of reconstruction:
1) field lowered, lower tier and roof demolished

2) lower tier rebuilt

3) chair placement and roof rebuilt


Comparisson new vs old (specially worth checking out the different in the lower tier)



After renovation:

one more 2014 Stadium:

BEIRA RIO

Before renovation






RENOVATION FOR 2014: complete destruction and rebuilding of lower tier approximating it marginally to the pitch. The pitch WAS NOT lowered, therefore, lower tier angle got shallower. Upper tier had all old chairs removed and was cleaned. Partial small concrete roods removed and new roof added. Façade was repainted and has some newer and better materials added. Parking lot building added

RENOVATION WORKS

1 - destruction of lower tier


2 - complete destruction of lower tier, complete destruction of small concrete roof sections, cleaning works on upper tier, rebuilding of lower tier and building of parking complex.



3 - façade works


4 - roof construction



Stadium Renovated

thanks Fidalgo, but I am more interested in the transformation of stadiums FOR THE WORLD CUP than their whole history or how they are nowadays. (notice I didn´t post images of Maracanã in 1950, or the 80s...)

Pontiac is not Detroit. It's a city on the Oakland County, one of the wealthiest counties in the US.

Anyway, I checked on the Wikipedia: Detroit Lions abandoned the posh and green suburbs and moved to Downtown Detroit. So it's exactly the opposite of your post.

no: my post

AcesHigh said:
the stadium is abandoned. Detroid is bankrupt. Etc.
the exact opposite of my post is: "the stadium is not abandoned. Detroit is well financially"

Is the stadium abandoned? YES

Is Detroit well financially? No

so how can your post be exactly opposite to mine?

Metro Detroit is not bankrupt. The City of Detroit, representing only a tiny % of the metro population, is.

You suggested the decay of Silverdome was due Detroit bankrupcy, when the stadium is located in one of the wealthiest counties of the US, 50 km away from Detroit. And the reason of the stadium's decay was precisely the opposite: Detroit Lions left the wealthy suburb and moved to the bankrupt Detroit. In short: Detroit attractiveness was responsible for the dismiss of Silverdome, not the other way around.

Anyway, back to Pontiac Silverdome, I was a child, but I remember it was the most cutting edge thing and there was this huge hype about it on the press. In fact, I watched all those matches (on TV, of course). It was by far the most revolutionary stadium in a WC to the time.

It would be really nice if people posted similar stuff about South Africa and Germany stadiums at least. That´s the point of this thread... people who have more info on THOSE stadiums, posting the info.
