Great soccer stadium

Thanks to Du Nord for the link to the new Braga stadium in Portugal. It really is a masterful use of combining the natural environment with a stadium. The contrast with the stands really makes this eye catching. I just hope that one day we will build a soccer stadium as interesting as this one on US soil.

30,154. That is a good size.

They used it in Euro 2004.

I remember seeing a couple of games played there last (2004) summer. Lots of complaints about it. Still, it's kinda unique having that rock wall at one end.
