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?



Excellent answer but sadly not the one I'm after !

Yes - so that rather narrows the choice of stadium down, doesn't it ?

I think it leaves two (if the Stadium of Light isn't correct), so I'll go for the José de Alvalade XXI, because it has an underground car-park? I can think of another oddity, but that's an addition rather than something that's "missing".

Estádio do Dragăo as the other option then, not sure why! Something about roof supports?

Indeed it is José de Alvalade XXI but not for the reason you have surmised.

Definitely is something (or things) notable by its/their absence. The fact that Sporting Clube de Portugal play there is of relevance.

Q: Is the "missing" element missing inside the stadium (as opposed to an external missing element) ?

G: The Estadio Jose de Alvalade, like its sister Estadio da Luz, are missing the "athletics track" ?

The missing element is indeed inside the stadium but is NOT the athletics track.

IS it that all the pillars holding up the stadium and the floodlights are outside rather than inside?

Is the missing thing the lack of dugouts/technical areas with direct access to the pitch (ie pitchside) with access to the pitch being gained via bridge type affairs

Is the missing thing, the water that should be in the moat which surrounds the playing surface.

Not that, either. I didn't realise just how many things are missing !

Can I just give a little directional hint for your thinking. The "attitude" of Sporting Clube is of great significance.

Q: Does the missing element have anything to do with flags ?

Is it a feature of the playing area that's missing?

A random guess before I head off to work... seeing as SCP have won so many "titles" in so many "sports", is it the trophy cabinet that's absent? Crazy

Random guess because I'm bored at work!

Is it because there is no tunnel for the teams to run out of?

Not that either.

Think team loyalties and especially local rivalries.

No, they're not that vindictive, and don't forget the stadium was used for the Euro Championships !

How about Jamesie's question vis-a-vis "trophies" ? (I do not wish to steal one!)
