If you’d like to add another nominee before the Stadium of the Year vote, please type the stadium’s name below.
You may suggest more than one. Nomination conditions: Only stadia of over 10,000 capacity may be nominated. Opening (or reopening, for redeveloped grounds) had to be within Jan 1 and Dec 31, 2013. This means that at least one event with all sections opened had to take place in 2013. Both newly-built stadiums and those completely redeveloped may be nominated. Stadium of the Year is dedicated to association football (soccer) stadiums, which means that any stadium able to hold a football game without structural changes can be nominated, even if this isn’t its primary use. Athletic, racing tracks and other football code fields are fine as long as a regular association football field may be fitted.
Nomination process begins on January 7 and ends on January 21. The following day open vote for Stadium of the Year begins, lasting one month, until February 22.
