Sightlines: A Stadium Odyssey

  • Sightlines: A Stadium Odyssey Set price alert

    Every city has a stadium and every stadium has a story. In "Sightlines" author and self-confessed stadium addict Simon Inglis has pursued his obsession to bring us the weird and wonderful worlds of usherettes at the Houston Astrodome, competing architects in Australia, angry neighbours in Auckland and wistful groundsmen in Bombay. Watching live sport as a regular spectator is all very well, reckons Inglis. But stadiums are far more interesting because in a stadium, whether it be a cathedral of sport or a collection of sheds in the back end of town, you can tune in to the mood of a nation or a community. Starting out at Olympia, where it all began, and ending up in Sydney, venue for the 2000 Games, along the way Inglis encounters anarchic bacchanalia in Pamplona's bull-ring, meets priests at a Gaelic Football final in Dublin and Palestinian refugees living within a few metres of a British-built stadium in Beirut. And in an attempt to come to terms with his obsession he tries aversion therapy by visiting 26 Argentinian football grounds in one week, in the company of a football mad psychotherapist. It doesn't work. He has a great time. This is the perfect companion volume to his popular books on football grounds. "Sightlines" is full of insight, wit, anecdotes and characters from a world beyond the view of the ordinary spectator. Read it and you'll never look at a stadium the same way again.
