They have removed all the seats from both corners of the lower North Stand. Don't know if it's for any construction work or if it's anything to do with upcoming events at Villa Park in the summer.

I believe that's for the gigs. The stage is that end and it will allow for emergency exits either side due to the number of people on the pitch.

On the contrary, we must be, gigs and that motorbike thing will absolutely wreck the pitch.

Is it Spurs who I think I heard lift the turf and send it to Yorkshire for nursing  and then bring it back after the concert season?

Is it Ajax that have a pitch that they can slide back in and out, or am I thinking of one of the Japanese World Cup stadia?

Similar, at Spurs the pitch slides out horizontally under the end stand.

There is some decent content on youtube about what Real Madrid are doing to upgrade their stadium (the pitch in and out thing, for example, is way more impressive than it might sound).

Well worth a look.

Sapporo has had a sliding pitch since 2002 for the WC.

They moved the goal posts with that technology.

I'm sure Chelsea or someone like that put in a new pitch during the season a few years ago.
