In upcoming weeks our Jurors will take a closer look at 10 out of 22 nominated stadiums. One of them is the future Stadium of the Year. Meanwhile, the Public Vote reached a new milestone.
This year’s edition of Stadium of the Year has fewer nominated stadiums than there were last year, but the lineup is very interesting. Varying attempts at creating robust sports venues in completely different urban fabrics (or even outside at all) were all appreciated by our Jurors.
None of the nominees was graded low, though we cannot reveal the detailed notes for specific stadiums, not to suggest anything. Not even the Jury are aware of how many points each finalist was given. Until the final Jury Vote is delivered, we only list the finalists in alphabetic order.
As the Jury had to drop 12 stadiums before the final vote, some of our readers may be disappointed. But keep in mind, your vote also matters. The Public Vote will remain open until (and including) February 19 and both titles of Stadium of the Year will be announced on February 22. Until then keep on voting, because we already have 17,000 votes and counting!
