Ok smart ass. Does it fall within the PL regulatory size for a football pitch?

You can avoid the mall by walking down Stratford High St and turning right towards Pudding Mill DLR station. You pass a good pub, the Builders Arms, that way.


Although Pudding Mill DLR is the closest station to the Olympic Stadium as the crow flies there is no pedestrian access. There is a series of railway lines and canals in between. The only way to get to the OS by walking is via Stratford station.

Good picture in the Metro or Evening Standard yesterday with police doing the security checks. Funnily enough the front rows looked quite close to the field. And the far side of the stadium didn't look a mile away either.

If they had the maximum sized pitch so that it overlapped the corners of the track - and then had an extra 3 - 4 metres of grass outside of that all round, should then appear that you were reasonably close.

No good doing a max sized pitch as an UEFA sized pitch is smaller, will width wise fit inside the existing grass, but will be approx 10m longer each end.

Have a look at the link it's the OS in football mode

But if we're not playing Europe matches, we could go to 120m x 90m which would overlap the track. For our Champions League matches we'd just play on a smaller pitch!

The players will love that 120m x 90m :lol:

Our pitch now is 100m x 64m, which is the UEFA minimum

It might mean we will stop kicking the ball out for throw in's with the extra width :thup:

I reckon if we tried kicking the ball out, it may well still stay in play given the 90meters!

The pair of white lines is where the track is going to be. AFAIK, the grass area will be larger than a football pitch I think.

in terms of proximity, these corners are probably the closest to the pitch, so the view wont look bad from here....move right round so you are directly behind the "goal" and the view will be very different...

This is the very reason that they are considering closing the tiers behind the goals and exploring new seating strategies...

absolutely...but retractable wont work with the size of the gap and the gradient of the lower tier in place

it would have to be a temporary stand
