And if you know your history... Seville stadium set to close
SEVILLE’S Olympic Stadium – where at least 80,000 Celtic fans made a pilgrimage for the 2003 UEFA Cup final – is to close because of roof damage.
The Hoops took a massive support to Spain to cheer on Martin O’Neill’s side against Jose Mourinho’s Porto, which the Portuguese club won 3-2 after extra time.
The official attendance in the Olympic Stadium was 52,972, with the vast majority being Celtic fans.
The Olympic Stadium, which cost £110 million to build, was only in 1999, but it’s been a massive white elephant and is now set to shut.
Its roof needs replaced which would cost millions to carry out and the stadium owner, the Andalusian Sports Company, has decided to mothball the stadium because it’s rarely used.
