RE: Favorite stadium designs?
Of course I love Nippert Stadium but it's nothing like the mega stadiums around the country. The good news is it's getting a small expansion, but more important, the concourse space/concession/and restroom facilities will be updated and expanded throughout.

I've always liked to see Washington's stadium on tv and it just has a wonderful setting. Another one is the Sun Bowl. I also like the Rose Bowl. WVU has a great stadium.

By putting the club seats and skyboxes on one side:

And the upper deck on the other side:

They have created a 70,000 seat stadium with a large number of premium seats while avoiding the seemingly universal problem of other new NFL stadiums of having an incredibly high, incredibly steep upper deck. Anyone planning to build a new stadium or retrofit an old one would do well to incorporate these principles in their design.


I personally eliminate all domed stadiums from any "best stadium" discussion.

Devil's Advocate here.

One of the major issues in getting fans to show up to live sporting events is the lack of a climate-controlled atmosphere. It's easier to put all of the creature comforts in a dome than it is in an open-air stadium.

Driving rain doesn't cause a serious drop in attendance when you're playing under a dome. A lot of people ***** about paying money to watch football outside when it's 44 and rain is crashing down on the field.

Domes are very kind to spectators - even if they're not considered "pure" by some.

They copied the idea from Philips Arena in Atlanta, which is by far my favorite basketball arena for just that reason.

Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with stealing an idea when it's a god one like this. I had initially hoped UofL's arena would be situated like this, but since we only have two suite levels it's not too big of a deal.

Double devil's advocate. Domed stadiums are the only ones that pay for themselves. Outdoor baseball and especially football stadiums never pay for themselves due to limited use outside of games.

If they have a retractable roof I am down with that.

Retractable roof is so 2000's. To be en vogue now, you need to have a retractable field! That's right, the - once almost named - Pink Taco Stadium, aka, University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ, has not only have a retractable roof; they have a retractable field.

That's the actual game turf sitting there. During games they roll it in and it doubles as a parking lot.
