New stadiums!

Well you already know the new haifa stadium, and here is a nice article from ONE about it. Its in hebrew, it says that the digging will already begin next month in the south of haifa. $20 million were given by sammy offer (i'm sure you know who he is), and the construction should officially end in 2012

Also, the IFA announced that there should be approval soon for a new National Stadiuim. They will destroy the current ramat gan stadium and build the new one there. The stadium should have about 60.000 seats (as apposed to the 40.000 now) and the seats will be closer to the field (i think our fans arent mature enough for that. Article in hebrew here (Sport5)

on my personal note, i say we make a prediction league for when these stadiums will really be fully constructed. My predictions: Haifa 2014, New national team stadium 2017.

by the way netanya should have been constructed by now, no? But it obviously isn't, anyone wanna make a prediction on that one as well?

Haifa stadium will be the first one to be ready and it should be a nice sample to what will be the modern stadiums in Israel.

Honestly i don´t think that a new National Stadium should have a 60,000 seater, unless they are thinking in hosting an European final or in a future a Eurocup (maybe this will be our chance to participate in a big tournament afterall).

I agree that the stands closer to the pitch is good which makes a home atmosphere, but for the size of our country, 60,000 is too much.

Hey all,

Was in the Israel for the past month, and had a chance to see the development of the Netanya and Haifa stadium.

The Haifa stadium is being built on the southern side of the city near the Hof Ha Carmel train station (its not that close, but its the closest station). The ground has been removed, but the digging hasnt started yet.

The Netanya stadium development looks terrible. Its being built just north of Kiryat Nordau and the frame is up, but thats it. There is no construction equipment on the site and it just looks deserted. Typical Israeli construction.

the one with most progress is the Petach Tikva Stadium, i think also the one in Beer Sheva started...btw i dunno if this will be true or not...but like a week ago a friend who's into the building movement in Israel told me that Bloomfield will be expanded to a capacity of 29,500

this are kinda recent pics of the stadium in Petach

Petah Tikva has a new stadium too...

Not to mention I think the NT Stadium should be in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, not in Ramat Gan.

Very well said, Jerusalem the capital of Israel. But Uefa and especially FIFA doesn`t want to have problems with their muslim affiliated countries and obligate us to play in Tel Aviv.

Regarding the stadiums, Teddy is the prettiest, the best atmosphere and a good capacity ground, so I would rate it as the best in the country.

Of course with these new stadiums now being built we will now have a good chance to see top quality ones. I am very anxious to attend one of these new ones.

For me Bloomfield is the nicest and best stadium in Israel, but maybe thats my personal opinion.

Why, because we play so many Muslim countries in Uefa? Israel's leadership is gutless.

Turkey, Bosnia and Azerbaijan. Plus, we all know that many teams fear our team when they come to play in Israel because we rarely lose so it is an excuse to go to a neutral ground and leave us weaker.

Regarding the leadership I agree we lack it in IFA.

Bloomfield is nice and has a great atmosphere as well, but inside the stadium in my humble opinion I believe Teddy is the prettiest. Plus, the stands are bigger and when you look to Bloomfield it looks a bit small.
The only thing I believe Teddy should be repaired is behind one of the goals where they have a wall instead of a stand.

Teddy should be the national stadium, if its in crappy condition then the IFA should update it and fund the building of a stand. The stands are much closer to the field, which would make it much more intimidating for teams that come there.

YEah we should have the NT play in a more home atmosphere stadium since our crowd is very warm. It would even make it harder for visiting teams.

I think we can technically allow the games to be in Jerusalem....no one is stopping us and there is no political charter that UEFA/FIFA is obliged too...afterall, they let seperatist countries and countries that no one recognizes (Tibet, Kosovo, North Cyprus, Greenland) to compete...... lets not make them look like morons and make rules as they go along.....besides...these "muslim" nations arent really going to play in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv or Beer Sheva anytime soon.......

As for the Teddy stadium, Gringo........you never been to it. You dont know the atmosphere or the drama that unfolds as you walk towards the teddy stadium with a packed stadium full of fans. For a stadium, in Israel that was built in 1991 like Teddy..it is impressive.... It was something quick to do and it paid off for Teddy and it looks good and for a long time it was one of the most premier stadiums.
Yes, it needs to be expanded, but there is alot of ifs and butts..... I personally dont like the way it stands right now and i think that the main problem is with the outer stand.. when that is fixed and another roof is made...i think it will look great. Plus the seats need to go..they are old..

Other than that....Stadiums get worn out pretty fast.
I live in Toronto and our stadium..the skydome at that time was the premier stadium in multi-use facility (basketball, soccer, baseball, hockey, soccer, racing, concerts, plays, etc...)

That was 1989....
Today, the skydome is over 20 years old and its still celebrated as a marvelous masterpiece. Unofrtunately, its name got changed and many people dont really care about it... New stadiums emerged in baseball which brought urban appeal and the love of baseball together....

I still love the skydome,but in baseball terms...it is one of the oldest stadiums around....I think the Chicago Cubs are the oldest (built in 1911). Other stadiums were built from 1992 and onward....

Anyone know which design was chosen for the Sammy Ofer stadium?

VS
'

I really hope they took the first, I think it'll be perfect for the city. It will melt in naturally in the Haifa environment, as compared to the other one.

the 2nd one reminds me of Israels architecture in the 1960's and 70's for municipalities....

the first one is good...it looks really up and coming and the area just tells of a different story...
