Eye-Catching Stadiums That Were Never Built

Over the years, we have seen many clubs come up with exciting stadium concepts that were never brought to life for different reasons... here are five examples!

Liverpool

In 2007, the Merseyside club released pictures of a brand new 60 000-seater stadium that was supposed to be built in Stanley Park. Plans were scrapped when the old owners left the club, but in the end Anfield did get a face lift.

Las Vegas

The MLS has grown to huge numbers in recent years, so it was no surprise when a stadium in the city of sin, Las Vegas, was proposed. Nothing came of it, but how cool does this structure look?

Casablanca

The 95 000 seater Grand Stade de Casablanca was proposed for the city's two teams and the Moroccan national side. Three years ago, it was believed that the project would go ahead, but the council didn't put a time frame on it and we are yet to see a brick being laid.  

Osaka

The Osaka Ecological Stadium would have hosted the 2022 World Cup final if Japan won the bid to host the tournament… they didn't, however, and the plans for this stadium were dropped into the bin.

Portsmouth

This stunning stadium was meant to light up the city of Portsmouth, but sadly the plans got scrapped soon after the football club went through a dark patch in its history as they got relegated twice and went bankrupt. 

Which stadium would you have liked to have seen come to life?
