Moscow - CSKA ArenaMoscow - CSKA ArenaThe highest stadium in the world – this is one of the ways to describe the new CSKA Moscow stadium. The unique feature of the stadium is the 142-metre skyscraper, in which you can find a hotel and offices and which stands in the south-west corner of the stadium.

The biggest stadium in Germany – Signal Iduna Park


Dortmund - Signal Iduna ParkDortmund - Signal Iduna ParkThis may come as a surprise for some people, yet the biggest stadium in Germany is not to be found in Munich, the home of the Germany’s most famous club, Bayern, but it is located 600 kilometres away – in Dortmund. Welcome to the Signal Iduna Park. In the mid 1960s, more particularly in 1966 Borussia Dortmund was the first German club to win the Cup Winners’ Cup.

Za Lužánkami (1953-2001)Za Luzankami (1953 - 2001)

23.08.2016: The legendary Stadion Za Luzankami was built in 1949-1953 in Brno, the second biggest city in the Czech Republic.

It came back to life in June 2015 when Petr Svancara, a former Zbrojovka Brno player, played his farewell match at Za Luzankami.

What they particularly needed was a lower capacity and closer contact between players and fans. This was achieved by lowering the roof and installing a retractable lower seating area.
