Its a really interesting stadium. It is historical home of rugby in Ireland. The stadium was redeveloped in partnership with the IRFU(Irish rugby football union) and the FAI(Football association of Ireland). The location is in the most affluent and expensive residential area of Dublin

Awww, when I visited UW last year, I was in about that same spot, except towards the other sideline. Going there made me wish I chose UW.
I had my high school graduation here and so did my sister and it has great sightlines. This place is rarely full for actual sports though.

any chance someone has one of these from the stanford vs wisconsin rose bowl?
When I was in high school (7 years ago) it was called Stadium High School, but that may have changed. And yes it was in 10 things I hate about you
Was this last night? I’ve since moved away, but I remember being around for the construction last year, thought they’d never get it done in time. Looks beautiful either way.
It was actually the QPR match. My buddy and I came over from the US to watch Chelsea v Hull and Everton v QPR. He is an Everton supporter. Most fun week of my life.
It looks like the Etihad’s flamboyant cousin. Whether that’s a good thing depends on how you feel about the Etihad, I guess. It’s a little out there for me, but I like that the shapes are very organic – it just feels like a
I’ve read about The Big House. Insane capacity. Can’t imagine being able to see much of the hockey rink at this game, but would have been a great experience nonetheless.
More info: 24,479 seats. Opened in 1976. Named after legendary Kentucky coach, Adolph Rupp who won four NCAA Men’s Basketball titles. [Larger than *any* NBA arena.](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_National_Basketball_Association_arenas) Largest basketball-only arena in the world. Has a record 26 attendance titles and has led in attendance 17
I believe it’s to help the players differentiate when they’re near the goal line. Helps them know how close they are if they can’t glance all over the field.
i have a feeling that this year will be less suffering and more uncomfortable disappointment. So a major upgrade.
Yes basically, the English football system works like this. Premier League (division one), then it’s the Football League (two, three and four). From division five (The Conference) and lower it is known as ‘Non League’, because it isn’t League Football, i.e. the top four
I didn’t know Pittsburgh had a professional team. I’m a Red Bulls fan and I’m looking for soccer out here since I’m in Erie. This looks like a cool little place
This is a truly amazing venue as well… I used to live in Newburgh, NY (just a few miles north) and would go see Army games all the time… Brings back great memories
Regardless of how good the team is Nationwide is still on of nicest looking modern arenas in the NHL
Hey there, original photo taker. This is because thats the side the cameras were on, trying to make the crowd look more full. Though the final turnout was 22,546 which is great. The capacity is also 36,000.
Pretty close – they average between 18,000 and 20,000, and Stade Molson can seat around 25K. I don’t think we’d ever see them play here, though, since they now have their new venue. Kind of a bummer, but when you consider that Molson is
Exactly the sort of submissions I love to see here. An interesting stadium in a lesser-known location, with a quirk. Cheers for your post!
That is awesome. As an american, the main city being talked about for the NFL is London. Mexico City occasionally gets mentioned as well, however that is more uncommon… Although I do have a memory walking through Innsbruck, seeing a storefront with American sports
That makes it even better. I was thinking they handed out free t-shirts. But then I thought, “How many sizes?” “How many of each size?”” Wouldn’t that take forever to hand out, try on, exchange?” “What about all the people asking ‘Are they men’s
Indeed. The whole stadium is built into a big hill. That whole concept is super cool, and the horseshoe shape is a very powerful architectural form. However after visiting, it is clear some of the fine details of the place were done really awkwardly,
I’ve been to my fair share of hockey games… it’s hard enough to follow the puck from 20yards away, i wouldn’t pay money to be moved further away than that. I get what you’re saying about atmosphere. I just would rather go to a
