The stadium is nothing to write home about.
We are too easily pleased as a people.

To me the stadium looks like something built
by the Chinese or Bulgarians from the 1970s.

It is concrete, go look at most modern stadia
they mainly have glass and steel facades.

Once remembered a foreign construction company accusing Julius Berger of building a "cheap stadiuum" at abuja. They said they'd build a far better stadium with half the amount.

Looking at this though, i can only say one thing: its GOOD, but miles away from GREAT. i wonder wat the fans will do in event of a huge downpour. Howerver, it looks really cool on HD! I remember watching the u-17 boys play there on HD tv. i cudnt belive it was happening live a stone throw from my house!
As the previous poster said, modern stadiums are made of steel, glass, and crazy enuf, plastic! Thank God we dont have earthquakes here. this one wont stand a 4.5 magnitude

Well said. Except for Abuja, we don't have world class stadiums, and on the bigger scale, lack world class infrastruX

Exactly and people are going ooh aah over something that looks like US College stadium, someone earlier said its the Lagos emirate! stadium,

when you look at Cardiff a second division clubs new stadium that's similar in size but took around 2 years to complete at  next to nothing ($48m) and could be increased to 50k capacity,  compared something that looks like an open bowl (they dont build those type of stadiums anymore) which represent a cash cow for politicians

When you have the Abuja stadium that cost $360m a 60k capacity and the Millenium stadium in Wales at the cost of $121m at 75k capacity and could have its roof closed off for indoor events you would think someone owes us some serious change?

Re: Beautiful Pictures Of Teslim Balogun Stadium by nateevs(m): 9:45am On Sep 30, 2010
Absolute crap. . .
No other nation celebrates mediocrity more than Nigerians. . .

The Stadium looks like a relic of the stone age.
Tracks outside the main turf like US college stadium.
Colourful seats all round like some lagos island FAJI carnival.
The silly logo of a politicians' traditional hat, embeded on the seats like he'd delivered us from the shackles of Hitler.

Accepted we started building the stadium in the 80s when we lacked a bit of technological advancements; but we can see what gos on around the world now. Why must we build every stadium as a sports. I don't see the sense in this very one, when there is another sports stadium just opposite it.

We know what happens when it rains in Lagos; yet we build a stadium that can't host an event in the rain.
The concrete floors will slip like hell when it rains.
Why not cover the stadium and genrate revenue using the stadium as a venue for indoor events?

I can't even believe people call this beautiful.

I think the word 'okay' would be rait to describe the stadium.

@nateevs



God go bless you,

Exactly we celebrate average and mediocrity

Nobody builds open bowls stadiums unless its Miami or Florida that has all year round sun shine,

Its not even OK to me,

Why build in the track when theirs track next door across the road,
Re: Beautiful Pictures Of Teslim Balogun Stadium by RSA(m): 10:58am On Sep 30, 2010
Its a beautiful stadium that is nicely maintained.We should have more stadiums like this in Africa,our continental football will improve and be more appealing.

Re: Beautiful Pictures Of Teslim Balogun Stadium by Akainzo(m): 2:11pm On Sep 30, 2010
@All,

That is NOT Tinubu's logo. That is the logo of Lagos State!
And since the stadium belongs to Lagos State government, the logo was put on it.

The Fellow posting pics of other countries stadiums, tell me, is Nigerian soil same as those of Brazil. Is it the same goverment?!, undecided

For crying out loud, the GOVERNOR (not President) has tried to maintain it despite all odds. He should even be commended, that way he would be motivated to do more. Even given enough resources, im sure he would have increased its carrying capacity.

Im happy that that stadium is managable, imagine if it were of a bigger size, there would be no way of managing a stadium of that scale with his eyes closed.

You haters really need to give yourself a break

"abuja stadium" is different from the Millennium stadium in wales. the millennium stadium in wales cost $121m @ 75 capacity yes that is true. but it is only 1 building. the "Abuja stadium" is a sports complex consisting of many buildings and arenas. thats why the cost is around $360 million. the Abuja stadium complex consist of a main bowl, velodrome arena, Olympic swimming pools, basketball arenas, hokey fields, soccer fields, and a host of other buildings and sport centers. the reason why Abuja stadium has so many buildings was because it hosted the 2003 all african games, in which multiple sports venues were built. so it was not a case of corruption. once again wales stadium is 1 building and abuja stadium complex is multiple buildings and fields.

They have been building this stadium since the 90's cry
I was expecting to see pictures of a world class stadium but oh well its average. Will this stadium be in a state of disrepair in 15yrs, we'll be waiting.
Re: Beautiful Pictures Of Teslim Balogun Stadium by omar22(m): 9:50am On Oct 02, 2010
All am trying to say is that we (Nigerian) tend to waste a lot of money on project and during the project handover you start to think whether we have been short changed the Abuja stadium with all the mini building added to it, its too expensive, Stade 7 November Stadium that was a similar size with all the complexes for the2001 Mediterranean Games cost far less, The Manchester Complex for the 2002 Commonwealth games cost far less,


Back to the Teslim Balogun, we deserve better, not a replica of the old dutch stadiums

Both stadiums were built with different features. When comparing stadiums price wise and capacity wise, you need to take into account the reasons for the stadiums being built.
