I made this database of football / soccer stadiums in 2018 when some strange person from Singapore asked me if I can do research and compile stadium data. I made a scraping script to extract data from www.stadiumdb.com, and later published database on website to allow other people to purchase it in case you are interested.

Football was one of my hobbies in early childhood. Since 1998 to 2002 I was watching many football matches with my dad, making in Word and Excel databases and analysis about matches. In 2002 my parents throw away my collection of football magazines, putting an END to this hobby. Even if this did not happened, I would have abandoned the hobby of analysis in 2005 when I connected to internet, due to much more detailed content existing on Wikipedia.
Today I may find more pleasure in making data analysis in Excel about matches than watching World Cup 2018 matches themselves. Just tell me what data do YOU require to be in database? I occasionally play football outside with my friends.
I offer 50 databases in various fields, automobiles, geography, real estate, electronics, etc.
