10 Nominees For Stadium Of The Year Revealed

With many beautiful stadiums opening in 2019, an international jury has now nominated the 10 candidates for the Stadium of the Year, including one of Qatar's arenas for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and a Premier League side's new home ground.

Click through the gallery above to see the 10 nominees for the 2019 Stadium of the Year.

StadiumDB.com, a website dedicated to the latest stadiums around the globe, pre-selected 21 newly-built or renovated stadiums to be taken into consideration for the latest edition of the prize.

Subsequently, a five-man jury of renowned architects and designers chose their 10 finalists, and will now rank them based on three categories, namely: architectural value, functionality and innovation.

This year's top 10 is extremely diverse, with Asian stadiums constituting the majority of the entries for the first time. So far, though, only one Asian stadium has won the jury award: the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in 2015.

Among the finalists is Tottenham Hotspur's new arena after it was opened in 2019. The replacement for White Hart Lane is considered one of the favourites to be named Stadium of the Year, but it will have to beat competition from new stadia in Russia, Japan and Qatar.

There is also a public award for the Stadium of the Year, where anyone can vote on StadiumDB.com for their favourite.
