The Olympic Stadium has been shortlisted in a competition to find the best stadium of 2016.

The new base of West Ham United has been selected as one of the finalists, after the original list of 29 stadiums was whittled down to a final shortlist of just 10.




The list - which includes all modern stadia opened to the public during 2016 - was selected by a panel of five accomplished architects including Peter Bordas (Hungary), Przemek Kaczkowski (Poland), Mårten Leringe (Sweden), Robert Mankin (USA) and Andy Simons (England).

And the ten sites selected for the final are as follows:

* Allianz Stadion (Vienna, Austria): SK Rapid
* Cape Coast Stadium (Cape Coast, Ghana): Ebusua Dwarfs
* Dacia Arena (Udinese, Italy): Udinese
* Hard Rock Stadium (Miami, USA): Miami Dolphins
* Medical Park Arena (Trabzon, Turkey): Trabzonspor
* Olympic Stadium (Stratford, London): West Ham Utd
* Sivas Arena (Sivas, Turkey): Sivasspor
* Stadion FK Krasnodar (Krasnodar, Russia): FK Krasnodar
* Stadion Miejski (Bielsko-Biala, Poland): BKS Stal, Podbeskidzie
* Vodafone Arena (Istanbul, Turtkey): Besiktas




The panel's winning stadium will be confirmed on Monday, 6 March - whilst a second award, in which public votes are used to determine the winner will be announced 24 hours later. To cast your votes, visit stadiumdb.com and select your five favourite stadia.

'Stadium of the Year' is a non-commercial competition launched seven years ago by Stadiony.net and StadiumDB.com, both of whom specialise in football stadiums. It is the largest open vote of its kind.
