We like classic old grounds as much as anyone but we also love to see a shiny new enormodome open its doors. Here we count down the ten most exciting sports stadium scheduled to open in 2016.
Team: Rapid Vienna
Best thing about it: It appears to have a giant Tube tunnel stuck on the side, on which fans can stand and have a drink. We're sick of stadiums with Allianz in their name though. There's at least three others.
Team: Gamba Osaka, Japan (J.League)
Best thing about it: The total cost is a mere £75m (the price tag for simply converting London's Olympic Stadium to West Ham's specifications is £272m). Bargain. It's also earthquake-resistant and will be used as a shelter and storage centre if there is a natural disaster. Let's see if the Hammers offer that.
Team: Cardiff Devils (EIHL)
Best thing about it: It's the smallest on the list but it's also the only one opening in the UK. It will be the most modern ice hockey arena in the country.
Team: CSKA Stadium (Russian Premier League)
Best thing about it: The stadium has its own skyscraper based on the Europa League/Uefa Cup trophy. If Bristol City ever got round to building a new stadium it would be like them creating a giant Johnstone's Paint Trophy in the corner.
Team: Minnesota Vikings (NFL)
Best thing about it: It has windows that open to let the elements in, but also has a slanted roof to allow snow to slide off. Their previous stadium's roof collapsed under the weight of snow in 2010 so they've learned their lesson.
Team: Racing 92 (Top 14)
Best thing about it: It's that rare thing – a domed stadium in Europe. Will be the most modern club rugby stadium in the world.
Team: Orlando City SC (MLS)
Best thing about it: Even though calling themselves 'SC' rather than 'FC' is an abomination, Orlando City are building a proper old-school football stadium that puts the soulless bowls some Premier Leagues clubs play in to shame.
Team: Olympique Lyonnais (Ligue 1)
Best thing about it: It'll keep in the noise the Lyon fans are known to make and will be a key venue at Euro 2016.
Team: Zenit St Petersburg (Russian Premier League)
Best thing about it: This 2018 World Cup venue looks like an alien spaceship thanks to its retractable roof. It's three times the capacity of Zenit's current home.
Team: Bursaspor FC (Süper Lig)
Best thing about it: It's a crocodile for God's sake.
