The Metrodump does not have Asto-turf by the way. 3 years ago they switched to Field Turf. Which is still fake but looks and plays almost like the real thing.

I love the design, but....

I read (and agreed with) a critique that really crushed them for not using any solar panels on the skin of the structure.

Can you imagine how much exposed surface area there is on that thing that just bakes all day in the desert sun? They would have had free electricity for the life of the building.

UofP Stadium definitely looks nice, but it kind of sits out in Glendale with nothing around it (although that's changing) and looks kind of ominous and imposing from the freeway out there by itself (er...next to Jobbing.com Arena, home of the Coyotes).

I love the stadium for Michigan Football.
I have been there myself a couple of times and it is huge.
It can hold over 100,000 people and it sells out every game.

Thanks, Wikipedia helped a ton with compiling pictures and notes.
Just hard to get them all.
Hopefully I can finish NBA and NFL soon and get this list done.

New Detroit Red Wings Arena

I've got a plan for a new Detroit Red Wings Arena at my website. Its based upon the Old Olympia Stadium. The site has some pretty cool drawings and floorplans, though they're amateur and not quite as polished as some of the other drawings at this site. Chcek it out at http://www.newolympia.blogspot.com

I would post some pictures, but they just come up as red X's.

Salt Lake City:

Energy Solutions Arena (formly the Delta Center)

Home to the Utah Jazz (NBA) and Utah Blaze (AFL).
It seats 19,911 and was built in 1991, making it one of the oldest NBA arenas in the league.











I'll post other stadiums later.
