Stadium trends evolve each decade through design advancement, construction techniques and new technologies.
Maximising revenue is resulting in new design thinking through building stadiums vertically i.e. with underground carparks, hotels, gyms and shopping centres under stadiums with the actual playing surfaces and seating three to four floors up, generating commercial opportunities 7 days a week in the facilities other than once or twice a week. The more the "multi-purpose stadiums" can generate revenue the more enhanced the experience will become.
Stadiums: The challenges and opportunities There are few construction projects that capture the imagination of the general public quite like a new stadium. Generally, these modern-day cathedrals of sport will be home to teams supported by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of fans around the world, who all follow them closely and care greatly about their fortunes both on the pitch and, increasingly, off it.
