And the futuristic Mercedez Benz stadium has looked backwards for prices. Watch the video embedded in the story the president and CEP explains why and how they can do it. Oz stadiums should listen and do similar deals.

With $2 hotdogs, $2 sodas (with unlimited refills) and $5 beer, Mercedes-Benz Stadium will open this fall with the NFL’s lowest prices.





Edit I found that video mentioned above on You Tube

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/25/sports/football/nfl-concessions.html
Prices down by 50%
Revenue up by 16%

I also read something that they went for round figures to speed up service.
Why go card only when you can eliminate change.
Obviously not as easy to implement in Australia (our smallest note is $5 while theirs is $1) but if you eliminate silver coins transaction times would decrease.

saw this video yesterday of the new Rams and Chargers stadium at Hollywood Park. It's a massive site as this is all part of a 300 acre redevelopment including the stadium, residential housing, offices, retail, and hotels and entertainment precinct and the whole are will be called Hollywood Park.

ATM it looks like the coliseum, hopefully the Chargers stay there and help pay it off.

Real Madrid are spending €525 million project on redeveloping their Bernabeu stadium built in 1947. They were going to start mid 2017 but its delayed until this season finishes and will start mid 2019. It will take 3.5 years to do the redevelopment and it will be a complex rebuild as it will occur whilst games are being played given a soccer season goes from mid August to late May early June with La Liga and Champions league games. They can't afford to move elsewhere.

This official video Real Madrid put out in September 2018 shows some of the complexities of how its going to be redeveloped, and how flash it will look when it ends up with a roof and an all enclosed ribbed stadium that looks nothing like it currently does. The capacity stays at 81,000. Read more at

And not to be out done Barcelona are redeveloping Camp Nou so that it will increase capacity from 99,300 to 105,000. Like the MCG their record crowd is over 120,000 when they had standing areas.

Like Real Madrid they will redevelop the ground during the season. They started in mid 2018 and expect to finish during the 2021-22 season. They are spending €600 million.

I was here last month, great stadium to watch the football, but definitely feeling its age facility wise, so a good move

The Vice President of the Gujarat Cricket Association and cricket administrator in charge of the building of the new stadium tweeted these pictures a month ago. It is supposed to be finished in 2019 but like most things in Indian construction, add another year or two to the deadline.

Tottenham's new ground had its first EPL game last night - well this morning about 5am Oz EST - after an u/18 game and a legends game to test out the facilities in previous 8 or 10 days.

If cost about £800 million of $1 bil USD to build and was 9 months late. It was supposed to be open in late August early September near the start of the EPL ie 3rd or 4th home game of 2018-19, but after 2 or 3 test events.

Its the first ground in the world to have a permanent NFL pitch on the bottom with a roll in grass pitch that sits in large cement tray. Here are some videos that shows how it works.

Firstly the one Spurs released the other day on the eve of the official opening. Notice the seating, from 0.10, is very steep the maximum 35% gradient that the EPL stadium rules allow for.


These 2 videos show how the NFL field was built plus the movable trays for the grass pitch. The pitch lifts and splits in 3 and then moves under the southern stand and the NFL pitch is underneath.

Official Spurs video in May 2018 at the stadium moving the trays



Arizona Cardinals stadium has a movable grass pitch, but its cement underneath not another pitch and they park it outside the stadium to get the sun, but there are no stands with spectators that it moves thru, just the end with a massive screen so they dont have the problem you had at Spurs stadium. See pictures of the pitch parked outside the stadium and the end it pass thru at the wiki page.

The SCX engineers in this video which is similar to the one above, explain that as you have 17,000 people in the stand you park the pitch under, you have to split the pitch in 3 so you can support the stand and not have it bouncing around.

The stadium budget is lower, but nobody is quite sure of the exact amount because it is combined with the admin/commercial/residential development of the whole block. Best guesstimates I have seen put the stadium build between 400-600 million GBP.

The original plan was to play the first match this season at Wembley then move to the new stadium. They damn near did it too. The stadium itself was built on time but the contractors messed up the installation of the fire system which necessitated gutting parts of the building and rewiring the whole show.
