For fans of state-of-the-art football stadiums, there's never been a better time to be alive.
Not only did Tottenham finally open their brand new ground (which it must be said is absolutely gorgeous), but in April Real Madrid unveiled their renderings for the
AC Milan & Inter (New San Siro)
Reports earlier this year suggested that AC Milan were 'fully embracing' the idea of moving to a new stadium after almost 100 years at San Siro.
The news suggested that Milan are sold on the idea of investing €600m in a 'new San Siro' just a few hundred yards from their current location, and the only thing missing is confirmation from the city of Milan.
It's not clarified whether Inter are on board with the idea, but if plans go ahead, it's expected that they will continue to share, as the report details plans for separate entrances for the two sides.

Atalanta (Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia)
Atalanta will begin renovation work on their ancient stadium this year, after the club bought the ground from the local council for €11.2m.

The project will boost the stadium's capacity from 21,300 to 24,000, and, according to the Stadium Business, Atalanta has previously outlined that other key features of the initiative include, "‘squaring off’ the two end stands of the stadium to connect them with other sections of the venue, as well as building a commercial area in the underground part of the stadium."
Barcelona (Camp Nou)
The remodelling - which will occur between 2020 and 2023 - will be done without Barcelona having to find a new home, and will incur an estimated cost of €360m.
Bologna (Stadio Renato Dall'Ara)
In January this year, Serie A outfit Bologna announced plans to completely redevelop the Dall’Ara, which first opened in 1927.
The work will involve reducing the stadium's capacity to 27,000 (from 31,000), with room for expansion to 29,000, as well as the installation of a new roof and stands closer to the pitch. The project is expected to take five years to complete.
Celta Vigo (Abanca Balaídos)
O Celtiña have been in their home ground since 1982, and has undergone several redevelopments over the years - including in 2002/03 when the club qualified for the Champions League for the first time in their history.
Since 2015 Balaídos has been undergoing major renovations, which will become a fully covered stadium with capacity for 31,000 spectators (current capacity is 29,000), and, according to Marca, will include:
Crystal Palace (Selhurst Park)
The Eagles have already been granted the green light (in principle) to expand Selhurst Park's capacity from 26,000 to over 34,000.
Empoli (Stadio Carlo Castellani)
The fantastically named Stadio Carlo Castellani has been home to Empoli since 1965, but in 2018 the Serie A outfit announced that it would be launching a complete overhaul of the ground in a project financed through a public-private partnership - the first of its kind in Italy.

It'll hold 20k people & be ready by 2020!

The new ground - well, almost new (three of the four stands will be rebuilt) - will accommodate 20,000 fans, and Empoli have stated that the ground will be "be sustainable from a social, economic and environmental perspective thanks to a configuration that will make it a zero emissions facility."
Everton (Bramley-Moore Dock Stadium)
Feyenoord (Feyenoord Stadium)
Fiorentina (Nuovo Stadio Fiorentina)
Fiorentina currently play their football at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, though the club have been looking to leave the ancient ground (opened in 1931) since 2008.
Though construction has not yet begun on the ground - thanks to a corruption scandal and difficulties in securing a new site for the stadium - Florence's mayor has said that the arena could be ready for use by 2023.
The stadium would be built on the Mercafir site in Florence and would cost around €420m. And holy heck, if the video is anything to go by, it's going to look absolutely stunning.
Hungary (Puskas Arena)
The 68,000-seater Puskas Arena in Budapest is due for completion by the end of 2019, in time for Euro 2020 where it will host three group stage matches and a round of 16 fixture.
Built on the site of the ageing Ference Puskas Stadium, the €600m venue will also become the national stadium of Hungary.
The characteristics of the original ground will be referenced in the new design hugely important, while the tower of the old stadium will be used host a museum dedicated to Puskas - who else)?
Inter Miami CF (Inter Miami Stadium)
Manchester United (Old Trafford)
Napoli (Stadio San Paolo)
Raja Casablanca & Wydad Casablanca (Grand Stade de Casablanca)
This stadium was meant to be part of Morocco's World Cup in 2010 (had they won the bid instead of South Africa), and then again for the 2026 tournament, but unsuccessful bids meant that it will just have to be used by the city's two club sides, as well as the Moroccan national team.

The task force discovered the site of the future "Grand Stade de Casablanca". With a capacity of 93,000 seats, the stadium will welcome sports, music and cultural events for years to come #TogetherForOneGoal #Authenticity pic.twitter.com/5dc6VnSBhi
Undeterred, Morocco now plan to use the stadium - which will have a capacity of 93,000 once it's completed in 2025 - for the 2030 World Cup. Third time's the charm lads.
Real Madrid (Santiago Bernabeu)
Roma (Stadio della Roma)
Steaua Bucuresti (Stadionul Steaua)
The €77m Stadionul Steaua is set to. be ready in the early months of 2020, after two years of construction.
The venue which will be home to Steaua Bucuresti's home games will have a capacity of just 32,000 but it is easily one of the most visually interesting designs, with its ultra-modern star-like facade.
