    Just finished tearing down the south stand. They're going to rebuild it much nicer and attach it to the east stand.

    Looks like Allianz Stadium in Munich


    And some of those other stadiums look pretty unfinished for Euro 2012 to be just a year away.

    This and the PGE Arena is seriously the same exact shape as Allianz but almost 25,000 less in capacity. Impressive for Poland, though.

    Lille's stadium looks to be similar to the retractable roof stadiums in the US like Lucas Oil and Reliant Stadium, except that the fucking field lifts in half.

    It's crazy to me that most football stadiums hold 75,000+ and even 100,000 in some cases but soccer stadiums are all around or less than 50K

    There's also far more soccer teams in certain areas, and many teams don't have the ability to expand a stadium or its tough for them to build a new bigger stadium due to land availability. There's really nothing in America that comes close to London, Liverpool/Manchester, or the Rhine-Ruhr region of Germany. It would be like the equivalent of having 6 NFL teams in New York.

    That's true, 6 100,000 capacity stadiums in a city, even the size of NYC would be a bit ridiculous. Forgot how close all the teams are.

    Soccer fans need better sight lines than do football fans, so that is why many stadiums in Europe are smaller than American Football stadiums.

    Even still there are some good sized stadiums in Europe.

    Nou Camp-Barcelona-99,000
    Wembley-90,000
    Bernabau-Real Madrid 80,000
    Westfalenstadion-Dortmund-80,000
    San Siro-Inter, AC Milan-80,000
    Old Trafford-Man U-75,000
    Olympiastadion-Hertha Berlin 75,000
    Allianz-Bayern Munich 70,000
    Olympic Stadium-Roma-72,000

    What are they doing to the Benz?

    Can't really tell from these since the stadium was already pretty big.

    They got rid of the track last year and expanding, building a new terrace section. I believe the new capacity will be 60,000, it was 52,000.

    They brought the stands closer to the field. The stadium at once had a track around the field, so they have been working on one side at a time. Almost complete now.

    it's a few blocks from minute maid..if they cleaned up that area it'd be an awesome place to go with both stadiums being right there.
