Host the World Cup Part 3 – Stadiums


Tomorrow the Argentina bid team begin the next stage of their project. They will be looking for the locations of football stadiums in Argentina. Using this Wikipedia page – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_football_stadiums_in_Argentina – the children will then find the co-ordinates for each stadium and then find them using Scribblemaps –  http://www.scribblemaps.com . The children will be asked to add information about each stadiums capacity. I received the following email from the Milton Keynes Dons about their stadium earlier today:

We made a commitment to increase our capacity from 22k to 43-45k by completing the upper tier and expanding up to a third level on one side in line with Fifa requirements. 10% of the capacity would have to be a dedicated press area!
