The Milton Keynes Stadium designed by Populous is located in Milton Keynes, United Kingdom. The stadium incorporates two other major elements. Firstly an indoor multi-purpose arena with a capacity of 6,000 seats will be added to one end of the stadium. Secondly, a 128-bed hotel will be linked to the front west stand of the stadium, having appropriate support areas including an indoor swimming pool available to both hotel guests and players.
Several rooms on the pitchside will double up as executive suites during a major event. The site contours were used to allow the stadium to be semi submerged this allowed ease of construction with the lower bowl being cast directly against the excavated ground making significant structural/financial savings. The sunken lower bowl affords spectators direct access to the main concourse without the need for climbing stairs
