Football Stadiums of the Future
2 Jan 2010
While football stadiums are commonly seen as home for many of the biggest sporting teams in the world, few people realise how impressive the structures are and the work that goes in to building them. A new stadium is often seen as a symbol by the club, showing they are starting a new chapter and wanting to move forward. Here is a look at what a brand-new stadium can offer a team, as well as some new stadiums on the horizon to look out for.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
A huge new stadium built in London with plenty of state-of-the-art features. Tottenham have built this stadium with the intention of challenging both in the Premier League and Europe over the next decade and more. Those looking to back Spurs for success in that period can check out the new betting offers 2020 that are available to get a wager on.
This site offers a wide range of bookmakers that can be used to place football bets, each with their own individual offers that can be taken advantage of. One of the big reasons Tottenham may have success if it comes their way is ‘The Wall’ end of their stadium. This is one huge single tier stand behind the goal where the home fans can congregate to cheer on their team, it should provide a wall of noise and support for them in the big games.
Everton Bramley-Moore Dock Stadium
Following in the footsteps of Tottenham, Everton are hoping to move into a huge new 60,000 capacity stadium around the year 2023, with the hope that it can bring them the success they crave. Having been at Goodison Park for many years, Everton are seemingly on the move and if they want to compete with those at the top of the Premier League, including rivals Liverpool, then a new stadium and more seats are needed for their fans.

The San Siro stadium in Milan is one of the most iconic venues in the world, but it could soon be replaced with a new model. The New San Siro is scheduled to be completed in 2023 and will hold around 60000 football fans. The old stadium is full of history, with numerous championship winning teams playing there and while that nostalgia will be lost, expect it to be replaced with state-of-the-art technology to make this one of the greatest stadiums in the world.
AFC Wimbledon New Plough Lane
The New Plough Lane is set to be completed in 2020 and while this won’t be the biggest or most iconic new stadium, it is one covered in history. Wimbledon had their best days in the era of the Crazy Gang as they were known, in the late 80s and early 90s. Another historic part of their new stadium is that it is being built on the site of the old Wimbledon Greyhound track, a place that has sporting and gambling history running through its veins.
This stadium will be opening soon and if you want a new stadium to visit that is full of old history then this could be the one, the 9000-seater stadium should give AFC Wimbledon a new lease of life.
