Or Lansdowne as it always will be to me, doesn't seem to have it's own thread so here goes...


For any thoughts/feedback.

Know that one stand is a pox to get into and you may, literally, have to go round the houses to get in...


Thanks also for reply in Germany thread but besides the Google Earth option, does anyone know what the 'restricted' view is from Block 529?

Quick question lads.

All seater and mixed too.

Cheers

Really have grown to dislike it. Its a fine stadium but the North terrace looks like they ran out of money or it was designed badly and lets the place down big time.

Looks great from the outside but has no character inside. Was in the North Stand directly behind the posts for the rugy game against England(first time sitting there) and it would definately make a better SS.

Stunning stadium when viewed at night from Londonbridge Road. But as stated before, the north stand is shocking. Have a friend from London whom I have brought to both Croker and Lansdowne for games, he asked me "why do the Irish build stadiums with only three sides" ??

valo88 is correct with the capacities,  I remember 33K capacity as temporary 'bucket seats' were installed in WC94 qualifiers.

with terracing FAI capacity was 48,000 but IRFU capacity was higher as they put wooden benches on grass behind goalposts and maybe along touchline 'touchline seats'(?).

Would we have been better building a new stadium on the outskirts of the city?
Personally like the way we are in the city and as far as I know this is the biggest capacity we could have got with the space we had available.

It does look half finished though which is a shame.

The atmosphere is the main issue and that's due mainly to the fans - this hopefully will improve in the nxt few games

To be fair, there does generally seem to be a better atmosphere at rugby games there. I would guess our old friend the barstool culture has a fair bit to do with it though, I would imagine a high proportion of the rugby crowd go to Leinster/Munster/Connacht/Ulster games reasonably regularly, the majority of the fans in the stadium for our games probably don't. 

(No, I haven't conducted a poll on this, but if you think of say 6 of your mates, one of them might be an LOI fan, another might go to England a few times a season to support their team of choice, and that is probably about it). Not talking about the majority on here, who do go tro lives games of some sort, rather the majority of fans in a full aviva for an Ireland football match.

Much of the stuff said about the Aviva was said about Lansdowne Road when we moved from Dalymount Park.  We miss the Dalymount Roar etc. 

A winning team makes a huge difference.  The Aviva was rocking for both the France and England rugby Internationals.

Nothing wrong with the stadium, it's the fans that create an atmosphere. Has it been full once for a football match since it was built?

The reason the North Stand is low is because of the residents in Havelock Square. If you lived there you wouldn't want a 100 foot structure towering over your house. The old Lansdowne was more of a mismatch with its mock Tudor cottage in the corner and odd sized terraces.

Misplaced nostalgia.

Agree with you about a winning team, but the France game was awful atmosphere, comparable to football friendlies.

Think it boils down to how everything looks better in retrospect. I'm sure there were awful atmosphere games in the old Landsdowne too.

Ireland football matches tend to be quite aimed towards families attending as opposed to having a few beers with friends and going to a match.

I have notice a huge difference between Leinster matches and Ireland rugby matches at LR. A Leinster match would be full of families whilst the Ireland games tend to be groups of friends with the odd family thrown in. There is a big difference between the two in terms of atmosphere.

It was highlighted after Scotland match that the attendees were largely groups of males out for a few drinks and a match.

I have always found for football matches at LR that the stewards are more visible and more authoritarian. It leads to quite a restrictive mood around the ground. At rugby games they act mainly as ushers and none of them give a rats that they can see your jacket is at the brim full of cans that you want to drink at the match. There are loads of people drinking cans at Ireland rugby games. If you got caught drinking a can at a football match you would be chucked out straight away.  And there is nobody from UEFA/FIFA scowering the stands to see if Johnny in row 25 is drinking a can. The stewards dont have to enforce it.

I was in the west upper for France and west lower for England and thought the atmosphere was superb at both games.  It is different to football in that there isn't much singing however it was gripping stuff. 

Beat Poland and I reckon the Aviva will be rocking.  I don't think it is the stadium or the quality of the football it is a winning team we need.

Then going into 114 the stewards didn't even check the tickets. A big difference to the last few years.

Well not sure how last night's rest run went for hosting games at euro2020, obviously set up with 2 checks on Lansdowne Road, the first being the ticket check as normal and then the security check which didn't happen as the crowds gathering were too large. It will be some operation for a potential England v Germany game in the last 16 come June.

It was fairly chaotic getting back into 114 after h/t last night too. If they're going to insist on checking tickets then they need to manage it better. Another another layer of stewards stopping people pushing into the tunnel area into 114 before the check would help.
Or else the singalong/record themselves lads could do more singing during the match and take a breather at h/t. That might be a little harsh on them, but it is causing serious crowding issues at the entrance to 114.

Yeah. Any sort of panic such as a banger going off could cause a crush in there.  It was very claustrophobic exiting the stadium last night.

To be fair to the FAI ( not a phrase you hear too often) I thought the 15mins pre match  prior to kick off was the best in a long while . (Though the music choice before that could of been a bit better)

There was some band or something playing at the side of the south/west stands from 19:00 to 19:30. The volume was way too loud on the stadiums PA system. I couldn't even hear what the person sat next to me was saying. Atmosphere picked up once they f**ked off. 

I'm not sure if I like being able to have a pint at my seat either.

Last night was the first time I have seen a row at an Irish match before, upper of the east stand two young lads started boxing men behind them (don’t know how it started). The older men did not hit back as the lads only 15 or 16 years old. It settled down except for a bit of jawing for the young lads, then about 5 minutes later the security heard about it and put the young lads out.

Nipped out for a pee durning the second half and there where a few hundred guys drinking and watching the game on tv. 
Why the fk would you do that while the actual game is a few feet away 🙈
Bar should be closed, it’s a pain in the arse.

There was a bit of nonsense in 114 just as the second half started between a couple of lads too. Nothing too bad, but not nice to see between home supporters. I'm not sure if it was related to the pushing and squeeze getting back in from the concourse area.

Serious amount of sniffling going on in the jacks last night, disgrace if you can't go to a game without being at that too. Seemed to be a lot of aggressive w**kers in the stadium last night.

The singing section made complete ****s of themselves last night by singing that song about eriksons wife.

Class less actions you would expect from English supporters . Granted a high stakes game but absolutley no need to stoop to that level . I was ashamed last night to hear such chanting.

There definitely seemed to be an uglier atmosphere than usual last night. Lots of beer being thrown and a bit of pushing & shoving as the Danish fans were walking past Slattery's. Wasn't great to see, lots of potential for a really ugly scene.

Was in the North Stand beside the Danish fans and the steward told the missus to go to the wrong section 140 when we were 139 causing us embarrassment, Getting into the stadium was an absolute joke as we had 3 checks coming off Bath Avenue which was ridiculous. Started walking down Bath Avenue at 7.20 and didn't get in until just before kick off, really poor organisation. 2 idiots behind me and i actually overheard one of them asking his mate who is the Irish goalkeeper and what was his name, i couldn't actually believe what i was hearing and a lot of scrotes at the game, seems to be an element at all games and also the away trip in Georgia who just want to be seen and actually have little or no interest or know anything about the game itself.

He's not married though, She's only his long term girlfirend.

I think the one thing which let us down last night was the lads throwing stuff at Schmeichel, Yes he was being a bit of a bollix but throwing stuff onto the pitch towards an opposition is out of order and could have ramifications for us if the Ref noted it.

Never understand lads throwing stuff. Especially at that moment. Even putting aside any moral objections to it, what's the logic? I'm sure Schmeichel was delighted at it as it gave him an opportunity to time waste. Surprised the referee just told him to get on with it.

As for the chants at Eriksen, much worse is said at every Premier Division game every week. Harmless stuff

Pretty sure I read that UEFA require a security cordon 500 metres away from the stadium and that Lansdowne Road station is too close to the stadium.

Had the guy beside us in 114 V come back 8 minutes into the second half with his beer and started getting aggro telling us to move over after a few minutes. We hadn't moved since before kick off and he was beside us in the first half. Politely said there's no space to move to and he started squaring up swearing about how he paid for that seat. He was looking for trouble but his friend seemed alright and calmed him down, all a bit unnecessary as he was in the same spot as before.  I was expecting him to chuck his bottle at some stage but thankfully not,  although it's a shame there were a few others who couldn't resist. No need for throwing things towards the pitch.
