Some of those are brilliant. The South African one is just batshit :icon_lol:
 
Not that it would have ever happened but Portsmouth's proposed new stadium was crazy:

Good access roads, lads.
 
I've been to the Siena one!

Ochilview Road Stennie - built into a biscuit factory. Shit football but ACE smell.
 
Been to see them a few times when I lived there, love the Kassam Stadium with just 3 stands and a car park where the fourth stand should be.

The Singapore and Faroe Islands grounds... Danny Batth could get the ball into the sea, easy!
 
NK Imotski, Croatia. I'm not going to pretend I understand what's going on here.

Who remembers this shithole away at Burnden with the supermarket blocking the view of the one corner.
 
Burnden Park was bloody horrible.

Hull had a similar thing with one of their stands at Boothferry Park.

I try and bleach my mind of that particular cunt hole.

Brunton Park - Carlisle. Big new stand, cunningly positioned so a third of it provides a view of the rear of the end terrace and the park next door. Genius.
 
Went there twice in the 90's vile place that and Oxfords old manor ground.
 
The Manor was a deathtrap. Easily the worst ground in professional football I've ever been to. Bonus stupid Lego stands to go with the dreadful away end.

Filbert Street was weird too. One quality new stand (which you never saw on TV as they put the cameras in there) and three strange stands which didn't match each other.

It would be all I was trying to do if I played on those pitches...
 
I can remember it before the new stand. My student house was the other side so I got a free bit of football while the new stand went up. The terraces for the away (bottom right of the picture and far side of the pitch, although it has been seated in that later shot) were bloody deadly and the rest of the joint made Kenilworth Road look like the Maracana.
 
La Bombonera of Boca Juniors. I remember seeing it on TV and it always stuck in my mind with that vertical stand on one side.

I've played cricket at a couple of Power Station grounds and they were a nightmare. Bear might remember Drakelow Power Station with the humming of the overhead lines that could also be hit if a skier went up.
