WAG: The ground is the "Pierluigi Penzo" (S.S.C. Venezia). I believe that all entry to the ground is by boat.

Good try but not right I'm afraid.

Although the logical way to get to this ground is by boat, as we did, I think it is possible to walk as well, but it's a long way from Central Venezia !

Sorry I think I've misled you again - I was commenting on Venezia's ground, rather than the ground which features in the answer to this question.

Again I won't count the above as a question !

Does the team (minus the FC, FK, SC, AS, 1FC prefixes) begin with a letter A to M inclusive?

No, but because of the way you have phrased the question be careful that doesn't mislead you.

Does the ground host top tier football?

Guess: The ridiculous three sided municipal stadium of Sporting Braga?

Is it Estadio du Luz, Benfica, and the curiosity that it was designed to use as much natural light as possible, despite the fact that the oft quoted 'English' name, Stadium of Light, which inspired the architect is in fact a mistranslation?



You ask us what the aim is? I tell you it is victory. Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival. Either that, or fried onions at the tea bar. Fried onions at reasonable cost, fried onions in spite of all terror, fried onions however long and hard the hot-dogs may be; for without fried onions, there are only boiled ones.
