Looking at that South Stand and the way they are adding in the bottom part of the tier, down to the ground, leaves me scratching my head over how they will make part of it open up to 'accommodate' the pitch when it is 'inserted' into its 'underside' area to 'expose' the NFL pitch.

The top pitch splits into 3 parts.

It looks like it's down to the ground but it's proud of ground level judging by the base of the crane.

Due to the podium everything (very roughly) beneath this blue box is below 'ground floor' in the stadium so between that and the actual ground itself will be where the pitch will sit.

I know, I didn't mean that. I meant in regards to the way the stand appears to be being built down to ground level, the front part of the stand is designed to raise up so it can slide under but it's not easy to see how that will work.

I'll have to look at it more closely, I'm sure it'll be more apparent when more has been completed.

Again, I know where it will go, and the nature of what will be above it, it's just the route the pitch will take getting there appears to be blocked by the very solid looking parts they've added to the bottom part of the tier, but clearly that's just the perspective of there's more to it than meets the eye.

Maybe these replies are evidence that I should spend more time being clear and less trying to squeeze innuendo into my posts.

Think it's probably a perspective problem. We are looking at most of the images side on to the stand.

There obviously has to be space for the pitch to slide under. It's just difficult to see from that angle.

There are, or were, blue steelwork temporary supports in place that will come out.
