FAI and IRFU have delivered their 410 euro House and the celebration of May 14 will officially open a new chapter in the history of Irish sports. Big time.
Lansdownne Road, which started in 1872, is a sports venue and developed into the birthplace of Irish rugby and football on a piecemeal basis (
The East Stand was added in 1983;
Floodlight as of 1990 seconds).
We like it very much, but even in the 21 st century, it has half of orange peel and cigarettes. time.
Its replacement is purposeful.
Built from scratch and almost knocked me six times.
What impressed me first was how bright the new stadium was.
Transparent polycarbonate panels sparkled like shells on the skyline ---
I can even see the view of the outside city through havlock square.
The whole building moves a few degrees east and the roof faces south, maximizing natural light.
There are 117 revolving doors-
Rising from 50 people in the old stadium. A new premium-
The horizontal podium runs on the railway line, and the driving range is rearranged into a site running north. south.
Inside you will find the concrete of Lansdowne Road
The heavy "middle man" is a distant memory.
My impression is that the space, lobby and lobby are large enough to accommodate a large crowd (
In case of emergency, the stadium can be cleaned up within 15 minutes).
Light years from the old wet passage.
Then the design details: the Oak Bar on the company box; soft-
The light of the hue replaces the spots of the flower season;
The light gray, elegant green and plain brown color scheme is sprinkled on the stadium itself.
You will even find yourself standing on the carpet!
It doesn't even start with technology, from plug-insand-
A television studio was broadcast on the roof-top rain irrigation grounds.
There are even delicious hamburgers.
You haven't heard of the sloppy pints, rubber sausages, and half.
The time conflict between the toilet and the dining car is likely to end.
Catering for the new stadium is signed with Compass, with a total of 59 bars and food stores scattered across floors and halls.
Compared to the old hodgepodge, it looks like Michelin. standard fare.
There are hot dogs and hot beef rolls, but you can also eat at the frying pan station and slide to the Oyster Bar and yes, the delicious burger that gobbled (€6. 50).
The chefs will flip the beef in the Hereford herd of Carlow, Kilkenny, Meath and Westmeath, served in a packed wrapping paper.
Aviva Stadium is equipped at the same speed --
O2 business of beer faucet (
These beers can be distributed with a pint of beer in three seconds;
Five cents a pint Guinness. Twenty-
Nine bars in the stadium offer 2,000 pints per minute for 5 euros.
But not beer.
Think about it, on a cold plate in six countries, you can have a hot whisky, pick a wine, or have a specialty coffee.
Any still abandoned Celtic cub can buy foam at the champagne and seafood bars.
It's touching and going. Concert-
We know that spectators can bring drinks to their seats, but bringing alcoholic drinks on the day of the match is "decided by the Stadium Management Company ".

Can Aviva have a better prospect of spectacular reconstruction of the Rock Park?
Its second arrival turned GAA's Central station into one of the great European stadiums, which will impress rugby and football fans.
Unlike Aviva, the stadium-
Designed for football and football-
Closer to fans. Absolutely.
Lanstown road has grown organically, with a long history of sporting events in Ireland and Ronnie Delaney (Ronnie Delaney)
In the 40,000 s, 1950 people came to see who participated in the track and field competition.
In contrast, the Aviva Stadium is a new building.
The large "aviva" brand works in the seat on the lower level, and the catering is the responsibility of a contractor (
Let's see what this has to do with the price)
The totem pole for targeted fans will undoubtedly let you know who owns the title. No.
The head of the company said the stadium cost 410 euros and the money had to be recovered in some way.
Aviva has a 10-year title for € 4 a year.
It's hard to know.
Both of them are dead.
Hardcore and fickle fans
When Highbury was replaced by the Emirates Stadium, did Arsenal supporters feel dissatisfied? You know, anyone who calls O2 the point, you 'd prefer Bertie Bowles and thankfully better fit the py grime and the body shapezero models.

IRFU sold its premium tickets-
Guaranteed seating for all home rugby international events between now and 2020--
The price of 15,000 euros.

Everyone is sitting down (
Except for players who need to keep their toes)
There are 247 fans of disabled people. Yes.

The new stadium still has a long way to go to solve the problem.

There are usually more toilets--
It will be great when female fans hear the news. -
