The Football Association of the People’s Republic of China has set an ambitious goal to get up to 50 million children and adults playing football regularly by 2020. Can a stadium accelerate the growth of Chinese football? Our proposal for the Shanghai Pudong Football Stadium focuses on creating a world-class sports venue that places the spectator experience at the centre. The stadium has a unique and ground-breaking seating bowl design that maximizes the view to the football pitch from every seat, while creating an intimate atmosphere for all 40,000 spectators.
