Name the stadium for your chance to win a Free Bet

by Aidan Elder | June 7, 2012


Thanks for your entries, but it’s time to pick a winner.

The answer is the Stadio San Paulo, Naples home of Napoli. They’ve already tried to rename it in honour of Napoli and cocaine-taking icon, Diego Maradona. That request was refused as Italian law dictates that public buildings can only be named after people 10 years after the person has died. We might have to wait a long time before realising our dream of getting Wembley renamed Estadio Jedward.

The winner of a Free €25 Bet is Cian O’Dea. There’s more competition fun coming soon.


I recently had a few days off and some time to do what I love most – travel around Europe taking random photos of football grounds for use in Paddy Power Blog competitions.

In honour of Euro 2012 and travelling to the great economic basket-case that is continental Europe, we’re casting our eyes abroad for a series of competitions.

  • Each day up to the start of the tournament in Polkraine, we’ll post a picture of a random stadium from somewhere in Europe.

  • Using your cunning, guile and any clues you can decipher from the picture, you need to tell us the name of the stadium.

Apart from being really difficult, it’s actually quite simple.

It’s day eight or nine (I can’t remember) and again I think it’s an easy one. But I would say that because I used to do some basic plumbing at the stadium. That’s me driving away in the white van after a morning working on a tricky positive displacement pump.

Send your answer to with or without the subject line ‘donde esta la biblioteca?’ Don’t put your answers in the comments section below because if you happen to be right, you’ll be giving everyone else the right answer.

It’s one guess per person, I’m afraid and if there’s no winner, the prize will roll over to the next day. If there’s more than one correct answer, then it’s all about my hat of ‘competition ending jeopardy’ and the winner will be drawn at random.

There’s a £/€25 Free Bet up for grabs and before you start saying ‘that’s way tighter than normal’, you’re right, but we are going to be running competitions each day. It may be a smaller prize, but you’re going to have more chances to win over the course of the next few days. Swings and Free Bet roundabouts.

Get your answers in before 10am tomorrow (Friday, June 8 aka Euros-time) and I’ll announce the winner soon after.

– Customers must be over the age of 18, have a valid account and be old enough to remember National Lampoon’s European Vacation, which is essentially the inspiration for this competition.
– Paddy Power decision is final and moaning will be ridiculed.
