Sniffed out over on Twitter by the brilliant Mr @DannyLast and submitted here for your perusal, these be the CGI mock-ups for FK Vozdovac Belgrade’s new stadium, which the club have plonked slap, bang on the roof of a shopping centre – or “mall” as our Yank brethren may say – in the middle of the Serbian capital.
One of the few rooftop stadiums in the world, the 5,200-capacity Vozdovac Stadium was officially opened in March 2013 with FK playing their first league fixture there last weekend: a 1-1 draw with Jagodina.
The stadium is built around an artificial pitch as, we assume, getting real grass to grow on the top of a shopping centre (which is called The Stadion Shopping Centre if you were wondering) is a bit of a chore…
Apparently fans are already complaining that the thick concrete pillars put in place to support the roof obscure far too much of the pitch if you happen to get a seat behind them.
Still, it’s a bloody rooftop stadium!!!
