Stadiums come in different shapes and sizes, but some have grandiose designs that make them one-of-a-kind attractions. Here are some of the most impressive and beautiful stadiums around the world:
1. San Siro (Milan, Italy)
Whether it is the home to A.C. Milan or Inter Milan football team is still subject to debate. One thing is for sure, though; it’s the largest stadium in Italy. It is an all-seating venue, and it can accommodate more than 80,000 people at once. It has three tiers, with the last one supported by more than ten concrete towers.
2. Beijing National Stadium (Beijing, China)
Also, known as the Bird’s Nest because of its design, Beijing National Stadium costs more than USD$400 million to build. It features Chinese ceramics-inspired steel supports that conceal the retractable roof. Unlike other stadiums, which are home to sporting teams, this one becomes busy only during Olympics.
3. Las Vegas Stadium (Nevada, USA)
Las Vegas Stadium is not yet the official name since it will take a few more years to open. But, this future home of the NFL team Las Vegas Raiders is already generating a buzz because of its price—a whopping USD$1.9 billion. It will, therefore, be the most expensive stadium in the world.
4. ANZ Stadium (Sydney, Australia)
Also, called as Stadium Australia, ANZ Stadium is an iconic landmark with its unique design and intricate louvres installed by CVS Equipment. Indeed, the most distinctive quality of the structure is its shade, which gives the venue an open-air feel without the glare. It is also known for being a multi-purpose venue. Not only does it offer a space suitable for football, but it is also usable as a cricket ground or rugby field. It holds concerts and other performances, too.
With their stunning designs, these stadiums are worth the visit. So, don’t forget to include them in your itineraries if ever you’re planning to have a holiday in the countries mentioned above.
