Stadium oh Stadium

by on Nov.07, 2014, under My Point of View

As a football fan, one thing that came to my mind once I knew I was going to London was going to football stadium. I couldn’t imagine how could a city has so many international stadium, it must be so close one another. So¬† in the first week I went to three stadiums owned by big football clubs in London: Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspurs. It isn’t like what I thought. The location is very far one another. The stadium is so small. I mean the stadium is only stadium surrounded by road (entrance/exit in White Hart Lane directly facing road). No trees. Nothing green. Now I know why the stadiums in Europe do not have running track: because it is too small to have it.

Let me talk about stadium in my hometown. I live in Solo. We have big stadium called Manahan Stadium where you can find almost all kind of sport facilities, football, tennis, badminton, basketball, and even there’s a velodrom inside. It is huge. There are a lot of trees and open parks, also beautiful statues in every corner. This is one of the biggest stadium in Indonesia. Although we do not have so many huge parks like in London, but we have football fields like everywhere. There’s a football field in 1 km south of Manahan and there’s another field 1 km further, only 2 minutes walk from my home.

Well, even I go to stadium, I didn’t go inside because the ticket is so expensive. I believe that the facilities inside are better than one in my hometown. But they are private stadium, they get a lot of profit from everything. So I cannot say that mine is bad enough. It is good enough based on the money that we have. They have modern appearance (Emirates stadium looks more modern than the others), but nothing’s special about this. It’s just like other buildings here in London.

So now I’m not really curious about other stadiums here.

Oh I really love my country. Nothing can beat it.
