The Other stadium that come to my mind built in basically the same form as the Monumental is the Bernabeu..If you look at in from street level it looks no taller that the Nacional de Chile...but you walk in and then realize it has 3 tiers and about 2/5fths of the total length between the pitch and the top row of spectators its below street level .. :cap:

Chinquihue, Puerto Montt's stadium, was the first in Chile in have synthetic grass. Before that it was horrible to play there, because the city has rain 12 months a year.

La Roja apunta al Monumental

El colombiano Álvaro González y el costarricense Jorge Ortega llegaron ayer a Chile y se van hoy. Son oficiales de Seguridad de la FIFA, y la razón de su visita fue inspeccionar los dos estadios nacionales inscritos para las eliminatorias de la Copa del Mundo de Sudáfrica 2010, que se inician en octubre.
A primera hora, los personeros se reunieron en la ANFP con representantes de la Intendencia de Santiago y Carabineros. Al mediodía partieron al Estadio Nacional, en donde comprobaron que no cumplía con los nuevos estándares de seguridad impuestos por la FIFA, como la individualidad de cada asiento y sobre todo por el deteriorado estado de la cancha.
"Si la eliminatoria comenzara esta semana, no se podría jugar en ninguno de los dos estadios. En el Nacional no se puede disputar un partido, pues no reúne las condiciones necesarias que les den garantías a los deportistas para que desarrollen su juego y mostrar sus habilidades sin correr riesgos", sostuvo González.
A los inspectores fifos les comunicaron, asimismo, que la intención primaria de la ANFP para el debut de Chile ante Perú era utilizar el recinto que verían más tarde: el Monumental. Eso, mientras los administradores del Nacional no se comprometan a arreglar el gramado y aseguren que el reducto no será utilizado para tanto evento extradeportivo.
Hay también un tema de costos: la ANFP paga cerca de $70 millones por arriendo, y pese a que el primer recinto deportivo del país tiene más aforo, una menor recaudación en Macul se compensaría con las casi dos mil entradas gratis que se entregan al administrador del Nacional (IND).
"Necesitamos un estadio que permita un buen rendimiento en la cancha y una buena imagen internacional, y hoy el Estadio Nacional no lo cumple", afirmó el presidente de la ANFP, Harold Mayne-Nicholls.
La intención de Quilín fue recibida con "gran entusiasmo" en Colo Colo, en donde aseguran que la primera cortapisa del Monumental -la ausencia de asientos individuales- tiene una solución "más barata y rápida de lo que se piensa". Igualmente, en la entidad alba aseguran que cobrarían "menos" que Chiledeportes por el arriendo.

-----------
En 2007, Chile recibirá a Perú y a Paraguay. Será con motivo de la segunda (17 de octubre) y tercera fecha (21 de noviembre) de las eliminatorias.

In english NOW too....the news have gone around the world already ....

Chile stadiums not up :scared: to scratch for qualifiers

SANTIAGO, April 10 (Reuters) -

Chile's football stadiums are unfit :nono: to host World Cup qualifiers, FIFA representative Alvaro Gonzalez said.

Chile have designated Santiago's National and Monumental stadiums for the 2010 qualifying competition, which is due to start in South America later this year, but Gonzalez said after inspections that both needed modernising.

He said in a radio interview that the pitch at the National Stadium posed risks to the players while the Monumental stadium, which belongs to Colo Colo, needed improvements to the stands.

"You can't play a football match on this pitch," Gonzalez told Radio Cooperativa after visiting the National Stadium, which was notoriously used to hold political prisoners following a military coup in 1973.

"It doesn't offer the conditions necessary for the players to freely develop their game and show their talents without running risks.

"It has a lot of areas which offer serious risks to the players.

"FIFA have issued some recommendations and a deadline of mid-August, when a new inspection will take place to see if the corrections have been made."

Chile last qualified for the World Cup in 1998. They are due to kick off their 2010 campaign away to Argentina and their first home game will be against neighbours Peru.

Chilean media have often criticised the state of the country's football stadiums. A match in Rancagua was recently called off at short notice after a plague of termites :eek:damaged seats in one of the stands.

Its not that easy and cheap....

1st...they cant be benches.....
2nd they have to be INDIVIDUAL seats...

just like in the tribunas or in a theaters platea....That is also goinn to make the capacity at the Monu much smaller..... No way 65.000 can seat in there with all seats... 35,ooo to 40,oo at the max ....

Look what happened to the Bernabeu when they were forced to go all seats....from 110.000 people down to about 70.000 ... :eek:

Then maybe:hopefull: this MIGHT be the push we need to start building up !!!!! and soon !!!!!!
