This Stadium/Pitch in Singapore is the World's Biggest Floating Stage

This floating stage seems like one heck of a way to take in a concert or a soccer match.

In a crowded urban setting like Singapore, people need to be creative about architecture and positioning. Consider it like an urban game of Tetris. The Float at Marina Bay in the crowded city is a marvel of floating engineering. The floating stage is made entirely out of steel and is anchored to the bottom of the harbor by six underwater pylons. The stage is 120 meters long by 83 meters wide and can support over 1,000 tonnes of weight. The stadium seating can accommodate as many as 30,000 spectators. The intricate floating stage took over 13 months to construct.

If I ever play a soccer game on that floating stage, I call dibs on not getting the ball when it inevitably ends up landing in the harbor.
