On April 28, 1877, the 5,000-seat Stamford Bridge officially opened for the first time. It was a splendid event organized by its boss, the richest Lord London, and it was the product of architect Archibald Leitch – a man that no one in the design world knows about.

After 28 years, the second largest stadium in England (just behind Crystal Palace) is still standing there, but its boss does not, even half-alive in poverty. Stamford Bridge was offered for sale at a very low price. It was Fulham who shook his head once and finally, this football field (after a long time only used as an athletic field) was transferred to the Mears brothers.
In 1982, then Chelsea was standing halfway through the rankings in the second division. That day, Chelsea did not have the grandeur of the Stamford Bridge we know today; all at that time was just an empty lot with a stand with only 14,000 seats. Then Ken Bates came and bought Chelsea, Stamford Bridge began to be upgraded and rebuilt into a Chelsea Village complex with restaurants, hotels and training and entertainment centers.

The historic football fields caused nostalgic feelings for the British

English football is developing in such a dizzying speed, many new stadiums are built to meet the increasing demand for capacity and playing conditions. However, English football fans are often nostalgic about the old stadiums, which store the history, memories, glory and failure of the club they love.

  1. Highbury (Arsenal, 1913-2006)

Arsenal fans around Highbury Stadium in their last derby with Tottenham there in March 2006. This is Arsenal’s home ground since 1913, located in North London and has a capacity of 38,419 seats.

After closing Highbury, Arsenal held an auction to sell parts of the stadium. The money was used to build an apartment complex called “Highbury Square”. Farewell to Highbury, Arsenal moved to the new Emirates Stadium.

  1. Maine Road (Manchester City, 1923-2003)

For a long time in history, the Maine Road was the largest pitch in England. In existence from 1923-2003, Maine Road has always been remembered as the legendary stadium of English football.

The demolition of the stadium began in late 2003 and lasted about 10 months. Along with that is the team switch to play in City of Manchester (later changed to Etihad Stadium).

  1. The Dell (Southampton, 1898-2001)

The Dell has been Southampton’s home ground since 1898. By 1950, The Dell was the first stadium in England to have a lighting system installed for matches taking place at night.

In the 1993/94 season, with a capacity of only 15,000 seats, The Dell was the smallest stadium in England.


Why can’t people build stadiums in Italy? (Part 2)

But the project exceeded its budget by 84%, with the team cost estimated to be one billion euros today. The overspending left a huge debt and so the local government that owned the stadium demanded exorbitant rent from the clubs.

They were even more ugly when CONI (Italian Olympic Committee) financed a number of projects with the requirement of adding an athletic track to make football fans pushed further, difficult to follow. ball situations on the field.

But the most unfortunate part of the 1990 project lies in its timing. Nowadays, the renovated / newly built stadiums are no different from modern architecture, from a distance looks like a spaceship; at that time, the stadiums in Italy were faithful to the giant concrete ‘rice bowl’ design.
The real stadium-building boom took place in the late 1990s, with iconic constructions like the Stade de France or the Amsterdam Arena. Thus, although built only less than a decade apart, but Italy has many backward and redundant stadiums compared to the rest of Europe. Many pitches are too big for the club’s stature, like San Nicola with 58,000 seats while Bari, currently competing in Serie C, has an average audience of just 12,000. The average number of spectators watching Lazio and AS Roma is 40,000 but that is still too small, leaving more than 33,000 vacancies at the giant Olimpico. On the other hand, clubs have struggled to find round-by-round revenue, while still paying extremely expensive maintenance fees to ensure these dilapidated stadiums meet the standards of tournament organizers.
