Stadium of the Year 2016: Halfway there, what’s next? We’re exactly past the halfway point in the annual Stadium of the Year competition. With over 25,000 votes and counting, any stadium (literally!) can still win. What now?

Stadium of the Year is now heating up, especially in recent days, when numerous online publications throughout Europe generated momentum and brought new people willing to vote. As we write this, almost 26,000 users have cast their votes already. Thank you!

There are still over two weeks of the vote left, so you still have enough time to read all descriptions, view all the photos and make up your mind which of the 29 nominated stadiums to vote for. To help you in making this decision, we’re making a list of 29 reasons, each in a different article.

Yes, you guessed correctly: each article is about a stadium and each stadium is a reason to vote. Now we’re going to tell you why each of them deserves your vote! These won’t be regular articles, rather a list of what’s best about each of the competing stadia, why you may consider each of them in your top five.

After all, this year’s competition is full of original, sometimes quirky stadiums, each with its own value. There’s the sharp, aggressive US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, second tallest stadium of the world in Moscow and just 35-meter shorter giant in Miami Gardens. The world’s largest cantilevered roof of London Stadium, one of South America’s hottest cauldrons in suburban Montevideo and the amazing cultural context (and, in fact, structure!) of Oaxaca’s new stadium…

In upcoming days you will be able to read short pieces about each of these stadia and still have enough time to vote by March 4 (midnight, CET), when we close the voting platform until next year.

Why are we giving you the reasons? Because this year’s vote is the most competitive one we’ve seen in years and we’re eager to make sure everyone potentially interested gets the chance to vote. Though we’re already past the halfway point, even the last listed stadium could literally win the Public Vote! Yes, that sounds incredibly, we’re surprised ourselves with how stiff the competition is.

Because we’re receiving questions regarding the voting process, here is a simple instruction in the language of each country represented in the competition, on how to cast a valid vote.
