Dr. Magalhães Pessoa - {CATEGORY}

Estádio Dr. Magalhães Pessoa is a football stadium in Leiria, Portugal built as a venue for the Euro 2004 finals held in Portugal. It is the home for Leiria's main football club União Leiria. It was designed by Tomás Taveira in 2003. The stadium contains different coloured seats as well as an athletics track and has a capacity of 30,000. Estádio Dr. Magalhães Pessoa has hosted many important matches in Euro 2004 and the Portuguese SuperCup. During the Euro 2004 finals, the stadium hosted Croatia's matches against Switzerland in a 0 - 0 draw and France in a 2 - 2 draw in Group B. It also hosted the Portuguese SuperCup of 2006 in a game where FC Porto won against Vitória Setúbal 3 - 0 with goals from Anderson, Adriano and Vieirinha. The following year in 2007 it played host again to the Portuguese SuperCup but this time Sporting CP won the title against FC Porto 1 - 0 with a superb long range shot from Marat Izmailov. Estádio Municipal Dr. Magalhães Pessoa Stadium intends to valorize its surrounding territory with a part of the stadium that opens towards the scenery and another part that shows the defence wall of a medieval castle dominating the city. The project, created by architect Tomás Taveira, consists of continuous tiers that run a wavy course. The tiers are highest at the main stands (in the center of the stadium) and gently wind down in correspondence with the South stand behind one of the goals. This leaves an opening towards the city, the woods and the castle that overlooks the magnificent stadium. The roof follows the course of the tiers which are placed according to an elliptical framework that is brusquely interrupted at the North stand. The North stand contained a temporary and uncovered tribune that ran parallel to one of the playing field's short sides. After the Euro 2004 tournament, the tribune was demolished to leave space for a commercial centre and hotel. In addition, an athletics track was built completing the elliptical framework. As a consequence, the stadium's capacity was dropped by 5 000 seats. The seats are different colours and are randomly placed. This makes the stadium look funny. The use of different tint colours characterizes the entire stadium. The roof is constructed with a transparent material that has external light filtered which makes the yellow colour of the metallic structure stand out. The roof seems to float on the tiers however it is hanging on steel tie-beams (in blue) and tall pennons (in red) that are only located above the main tribunes. The external perimeter is characterized by squared panels of lively tints placed on a natural white background separated by the red metallic pillars. The well-balanced use of different colours is also evident throughout the stadium. Five levels consisting of several internal rooms provide numerous services to the audience such as restaurants and commercial activities. The stadium serves as a multi-functional building where sports of every kind can be played, including track and field, and also were music concerts are held often providing a wonderful scenery and a colourful background.
