It’s definitely a nimble look.

The city of Bursa in northwestern Turkey is home to a 44,000-seat stadium shaped like a giant crocodile.

Dwarfing the tower blocks that surround it, the green-hued stadium features a massive “mouth” reaching a height of 140 feet (43 m) into which sports fans can walk, their bodies curving around the field.

The arena, called Timsah Park, which translates to ‘Crocodile Park’ in English, opened in December 2015 after a four-year construction project that cost around £8 million ($8.5 million).

The design was apparently inspired by the stadium’s home team, Bursaspor, as the club is nicknamed the ‘Green Crocodiles’.

According to the YouTube channel Gran Turismo Football StadiumTimsah Park also has underground parking for more than 640 cars, 35 food outlets, and 789 restrooms.

In December 2017, the stadium witnessed a record attendance of 38,108, when Bursaspor took on Fenerbahce Istanbul.

And what do members of the public think? Twitter user gokhan keskin described it as ‘the best stadium in the world’, while ‘@FuzzyRuckus’ called it ‘epic’.

For those who wish to visit Timsah Park, there is about five kilometers from the downtown, in the northwest region of the city.
