A Football Stadium In Austria Has Been Turned Into A Forest

A football stadium in Austria has been turned into a forest as part of a new art exhibition that is also aiming to help bring about more discussions surrounding climate change.

'For Forest', the brainchild of Swiss artist Klaus Littmann, has seen over 300 trees such aspen, Oaks, birches and larches planted on the pitch at the 32,000 capacity Woerthersee stadium - which hosted a number of tournament fixtures at Euro 2008.

The project, first mentioned to city authorities in 2012, is inspired by a 70's illustration by Austrian artist Max Peintner and aims to highlight how nature could one day only become available in designated areas if humans do not take care of the environment.

SK Klagenfurt, the second tier Austrian side who normally play at the facility, have been forced to play their home games elsewhere in order to allow the exhibition, which was revealed on Friday and is open to the public from Monday onwards until October 27.
