They haven't stuck a giant snakes head on the side...



But if you like it then that's cool....
It's a bit too subtle for the American public though

This is worth a watch.

A short film of West Ham fans' verdicts on their new stadium.

Never understood or watched any MLB. But it appeals to me in the same way Cricket does.

They play about 200 games a season dont they

It'll be incredible when it's done; it's in a real state of decay at the moment - went on the tour last year & the guide was telling us how it's falling apart in areas; some parts of the concrete stands have had to be securely propped up

How on earth are they going to fund it?!

I read elsewhere the current sponsors are looking to stump up £300m over 20 years to have their name on it. Who knows if that is realistic.

I went about ten years ago and it was crumbling then so work definitely needs to be carried out. It’s one of the most iconic stadiums in the world, so glad that it is remaining.

Just watched the video - that seems massively ambitious to build it over 4 seasons without moving stadium. Can’t see it.

Also Shane they have put a lid on it. I love the fact that it is exposed to the elements.

Yeah totally doable. It's like a massive version of what we did with the main stand.

In fact, Barca consulted the LFC group / engineers on how best to do it.

True, but ours was one stand over one season and one summer. The number of variables that could lead to a delay are far greater here. Will be a very impressive engineering feat if they pull it off.

Ours was about 18 months for the main build. Started in late winter and finished in September the following year. Two summers. One and a half seasons.

It's not so different at all.

They are looking at 4 years, and an entire stadium.

V One stand and 18 months.

ARE would be another 18 months or so.

That's like three years if they were done consecutively for half a stadium.

It really isn't that different.

Yeah, but there is a three year gap with the main stand and the ARE, not one consecutive 4 year build the logistics of managing it will be greater. The Barca build is 4 ‘sides’ consecutively, we didn’t need to worry about three sides of the stadium during the build.

Also, Barca structure and stadium is far bigger and the structure is in fairly poor condition meaning there will be more unknowns as the revamp plays out.

Is different. Same principal different challenges.

Pitch below water level with just a wall in between them. Like it. Not an unnecessary recipe for disaster at all.

Forest Green Rovers granted planning permission for all-wooden stadium

The world’s first football stadium made almost entirely out of wood, which will be home to League Two side Forest Green Rovers, has been granted planning permission.

Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the 5,000-capacity ‘Eco Park’ is set to be “the greenest football stadium in the world,” according to the club’s website.

An original proposal was rejected by Stroud District Council in June this year, before revised plans were passed by a majority of six to four earlier this month.

The new venue is described as a “state-of-the-art wooden stadium on Junction 13 of the M5, along with landscaped parking and two pitches, one of which will be a 4G playing surface, with access for the local community.”

In a video interview on the Forest Green Rovers website, the club’s chairman Dale Vince said: “I think it’s the right decision. This is a great project for Stroud … [it’s taken] five years, and before that we were looking for a site for three. It’s passed every hurdle. It was a surprise, last time, that it was turned down.”

“It’s still going to take several years - I think it’s going to take us a year of detailed design work,” Vince added. “This is an outline planning application. The best case [for the stadium opening] is three years if we started tomorrow.”

The club’s main sponsor, Ecotricity, explains in detail on its website how the initial application has been amended following the council’s rejection of the plans.

Forest Green Rovers already has a strong commitment to environmentalism and sustainability, and in 2017 was officially recognised at the world’s first vegan football club.

“FGR became the world’s first vegan football club because of the huge environmental and animal welfare impacts of livestock farming, as well as to improve player performance,” reads the relevant page on the official club website. “Lionel Messi, Jermaine Defoe, Lewis Hamilton, Nate Diaz and Venus Williams have all adopted vegan diets to improve performance.”

Forest Green Rovers are currently sixth in League Two, in the play-off places, and play Macclesfield Town at home on Sunday.

Fourth Generation - it's basically made up of artificial grass with chopped up bits of rubber....?

There's some arguments that 4G doesn't actually exist because 4G is theoretically 3G standard but without the need for a rubber crumb.

And I always thought 4G was extra shock absorbing 3G - the type used by Saracens etc but with more give. So who knows?

There's certainly no grass involved though

I thought artificial pitches were banned by the football league? My other side Bromley plays on one and they'd need to replace it in the unlikely event that they'd get promotion

Just down the road from me. Looks cool but I'm reserving my inner Nimby until I understand what they're doing with the traffic. I'm expecting a railway line to be built.

How have they made a 5k stadium look that epic?

Id guess they have extended the roof outwards like a counterbalance, but also allowing for expansion.

The timber will be heavily treated so no - it's all outline planning anyway at the moment; the end design will be a lot more toned down I should imagine
