Estádio Municipal de Bonkers

Estádio Municipal de Braga is possibly the most bonkers football stadium yet seen (by me).

It’s blasted out of a quarry, has stands only on the sides (not the ends), and (according to the boy Line-Acre) you enter through the roof, which also houses the car park.

How’s this for a non sequitur from the design specifications:

“Today, football is a show, just like the cinema, theatre or television. This is why we have chosen to build only two stands.”
