Was the Sports Hub the best stadium built in 2014?

That's the question being asked by StadiumDB.com and Stadiony.net as they invited fans to vote for their favourite new stadium last year.

Singapore's pride and joy is up against 32 other stadia from all around the world, in the fifth edition of a competition that has been running since 2010.

The public can vote for their top five choices until February 17, with the other half of the vote coming from a panel of exprienced architects.

Ghelamco Arena in Ghent. Belgium won last year's competition, while the Arena do Gremio in Porto de Alegre, Brazil took out the award in 2012.

While it's all pretty entertaining checking out photos of the various arenas, the statistics provided are equally illuminating.

Singapore's National Stadium was easily the most expensive development of last year, with only the San Francisco 49ers' Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, USA ($1.27 billion) coming close to its $1.41 billion cost.

Next on the list is the $533 million King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, which was also designed by Arup (who had a hand in the Sports Hub development too).

In contrast, the Estadio El Teniente-Codelco in Rancagua, Chile cost a mere $9.9 million, and seats 14,087.

The Sports Hub's 55,000 capacity also compared favourably with the other entrants, with only Levi's Stadium (68,983); King Abdullah Sports City Stadium (60,241); Incheon Asiad Main Stadium in Incheon, South Korea (61,074) and the Stade Velodrome in Marseille, France (67,394) topping it.
