The New Stadiums Thread

Recommended Posts

I love talking about football stadiums. Whether it's about capacities, design, atmospheric potential, etc - I love discussing it. Tbh, it's probably my favourite aspect of the great game. There's an excellent thread about old Scottish stadiums of the past in the SPL forum (if you haven't seen it I would highly recommend you have a look).

That's the past...but what about the future? Numerous times I have seen people posting information about teams refurbishing their ground or building a new stadium on various other topics. I think it is a good idea to have a single place to properly discuss new or developing football grounds. I'll get us started...

I seen this picture on twitter the other day about how Barcelona plan to increase the capacity at the Nou Camp.

Fiorentina will be getting a new stadium soon but there's no confirmed artists' impressions.

I like the one in Turkey with the crocodile.

Would love if they stuck a pub at each corner.

Good idea, they could have a pub at either end - one for home fans and one for away.

ETA: this one also reminds me of Pittodrie. Would be better if they went for something like this - being slightly bigger - instead of their bowl shaped design at Loirston Loch.

A belter. Due for completion this year apparently.

Part of me was disappointed Barcelona didn't see through their plan to build a new stadium. Them throwing billions at a brand spanking new 100,000+ seater stadium would've been a glorious thing to have seen. Either way I'm sure the Nou Camp revamp will look pretty epic too.

The "Nou Mestalla" is an interesting one really. Seemingly building work started in 2007, and yet its still only half finished.

You wonder if it'll ever be finished

I'm not sure I'm a fan of the Valencia and Marseille grounds. I don't really dig the spaceship look - I'm a bit of a traditionalist. Real Madrid's planned refurbished ground for example looks ridiculous.

Yeah they all look dangerously "samey". In saying that Id prefer the spaceship look to the CSKA one!

Just had a look at the Bernabeu upgrade.... :green

Whoever decides thats a good idea should be shot, the ground just now looks fantastic and shouldn't be altered

Athletico madrid's new stadium looks quite good. There was a video somewhere on here showing the full planned work.

Valencia's ground is likely to be finished now that a billionaire owns the club. Looks like a massive white elephant as it stands.

I like brentfords plan. But would they sell out a 20k stadium? I don't know if they sell out their current ground.

Im the same - as a child i would always insist my parents drove past one if not all the glasgow stadiums just so i could get a look in. Few times when i was living in glasgow i would just take a walk and look around the stadiums and think about what games have taken place there etc. i am a sad sad man.

I used to go and watch when they were building Airdrie's stadium. I thought I was a uniquely sad anorak, but I actually met a few folk who were equally sad doing the same thing.

I content myself now doing a bit of ground hopping and trying to spot them when travelling.

Haha I do that too. I once got my parents to drive me to the Britannia Stadium and Port Vales ground when we were down in Stoke for Alton Towers.
