Nou Mestalla
Nou Mestalla is a partly built 75,000 seat football stadium in Valencia, Spain, intended as a replacement for Valencia CF's current stadium Estadio Mestalla. The basic concrete structure of the stadium was built between August 2007 and February 2009, but work was then halted for financial reasons, and it is not known when it will restart. If and when it does restart, 14 months work will be needed to complete the stadium. The stadium architects are Reid Fenwick Asociados and ArupSport, and the cost is estimated between 250 and 300 million euros. The design features a futuristic exterior, clad in aluminium and interior of wood. It is being built on the site of a former factory in the neighbourhood of Benicalap. The plans of the new stadium was unveiled in 2006 and on the 10th November 2006 former president Juan Soler and the club unveiled details about the stadium and presented a short film about the stadium at the " Museu Prí­ncipe Felipe" in Valencia. The work of Nou Mestalla began in August 2007. It was due to be completed in the early summer 2009 in time for the 2009/10 season, but due to financial problems this date has been postponed.

At midday on 28 May trades union UGT and CC.OO. called a five minute silence for the tragedy, which was observed throughout the Valencian region in all sectors of industry.
