Quite a site, the new stadium Ireland has built to replace the old Lansdowne Road ground:
additional info here:
in Ireland of course. I did see the old Lansdowne Road stadium too and it was handsome if a bit old timey looking.

Another nice one is old Saltergate stadium, the Recreation Ground that was used in the movie "The Damned United",

used by Chesterfield for years, used in the movie since it was like the old Football grounds. It appears Chesterfield has now moved into a modern stadium.

Chesterfield F.C.'s Saltergate stood in for Wembley Stadium, the Baseball Ground, Carrow Road, and Bloomfield Road. Saltergate was chosen because it had not had any significant modifications since the 1970s, though some repainting work was done by the production team to differentiate the grounds from each other.-
Except for the roofs, I've been to a few old stadiums here in the US as well that might work, often concrete monstrosities.
