Without interrupting our countdown for BOY Awards (check out our coverage in PART 1, PART 2 and PART 3, to find out about it), We would like to proceed with a more sporty topic. So here’s our TOP 10 FOOTBALL STADIUMS in the world.
We sincerity hope you enjoy it as much as us.
Opened: 30 May 2005
Architect: Herzog & de Meuron
The impressive stadium contains 66 000 seats that are distributed along three rings of tiers.
The stadium hosts two teams, namely Bayern München and TSV 1860 München. Both teams decided to cooperate for the construction of their new home. However, the external look of the stadium changes depending on the team that plays in the stadium. When Bayern play their home game, the stadium is coloured red and white. The colours turn into white and blue when the stadium hosts 1860 München for their home games.
The outside material of the stadium is made of transparent elements. They cover the entire structure (made of reinforced concrete) that supports the tiers from the bottom up to the top where imposing supporting beams hold the roof of the stadium.
The effect is great!
Opened: 28 June 2008
As well as designing a modern stadium, the team was challenged with creating a venue that was part of the culture of China and would put Beijing on the map.
The stadium has two independent structures, a red concrete seating bowl and the outer steel frame around it at a 50ft distance. As this was an Olympic venue, there were many standards that the design consortium had to conform to.
The circular shape of the stadium represents heaven, but has been described as a bird’s nest, with its pattern inspired by Chinese-style crazed pottery. A series of cantilevered trusses has been designed to support the roof, shading the seats.
Focus was also given to designing the stadium in such a way that it should be able to withstand earthquakes without much damage as the stadium is located in one of the world’s most seismic zones.

Located along the Persian Gulf in the eastern coastal city of Doha, is one of 12 conceptual stadia included in the winning 2022 Qatar World Cup bid.

In addition to World Cup soccer, the stadium is designed to accommodate a variety of uses, even beyond sport.
Drawing on the rich tradition of the nomadic Bedouin tribes, the structure’s inspiration comes from a Bedouin tent. Like the nomadic culture, the tents had an architectural design enabling them to adapt to their environment. The versatile stadium incorporates a partially-retractable roof, retractable pitch and a transformable seating bowl.
Mexico City, Mexico
Opened: 26 May 1966
The playing field is situated 9.5 meters (31 feet) under ground level and surrounded by three big rings of continuous tiers that follow a slightly curved profile. The stands run along the entire perimeter and, together with the roof structure, accentuate the horizontal outline of the stadium. The roof is slightly separated by the tribunes and is supported by a rectangular structure of supporting beams.
The stadium is nicknamed “Il Coloso de Santa Úrsula” (the Colossus of Saint Úrsula) because of its imposing size. It was inaugurated in 1966 and renovated in 1986 to host the World Cup for the second time.
Opened: 9 march 2007
The aim of the project was to design and build a state-of-the-art national stadium, unlike any other in the world.
When the roof is open it allows the turf to get sufficient sunlight and air, while in poor weather it can be closed to cover the entire seating bowl.
The stadium, with a retractable roof and a 135m high arch, visible throughout London, stands as an association football venue in Wembley Park in London.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In the refurbishment of the Maracanã, the existing exterior structure of this 60-year-old, 79,000-seat soccer stadium will be preserved as much as possible but inside the bleachers the intention is for a great revelation, the impression of an entirely new stadium – fashioned according to the spirit of the original.
The Maracana was originally built using reinforced concrete. It has an oval shape and consists of two tiers divided by medium-sized open boxes. A cantilevered roof spanning 30m covers 34 rows at the rear of the stadium.
