LONDON - ARSENAL FC EMIRATES STADIUM




The stadium is located in London, Holloway city district and became a second home for the gunners ( arsenal football players) in 2006 when they moved from old stadium called Highbury.
The new stadiums main founder were Emirates airlines.It has a capacity over 60000 watchers.



 It has a curved roofing over the seats but not over the pitch.The colour scheme of entire structure is red because of the club official colours and curved shapes een in a line of seats, make the building as contemporary as it gets.



The building is worth of seeing not only because of the famous players that have played for the club ( Terry Henry, Denis Bergkamp,Patrik Vieira,Cesc Fabregas, Ashley Cole etc.) but also because you can fill the spirit of contemporarry architecture, its simplistic and pure design.

 

 It is one of the youngest football grounds in UK's premiereship.



 Internal finishes are practically non existing and the structure is exposed as much as possible and is a decoration itself.

 

 The tickets for Arsenal matches are not as cheap as most of us would like, but to see this wonderfull structure you can only pay for visiting the stadium at time when there are no matches going on.
It's worth it.


 

 The design team included architects HOK Sport (now known as Populous), construction consultants Arcadis, and engineering firm Buro Happold.
The stadium is surrounded by a stylish contemporary residential blocks, which you can also see on the pictures.
