Home / Soccer Fans / Silves FC Stadium Demolished by Tornado…(Video)


Silves FC, a small semi-pro side in Portugal, will be in need a new ground and a cash infusion after a tornado annihilated their stadium in under a minute. You can see the destruction in real time in the video below, shot by some enterprising, in my opinion extremely stupid, man who seems to be enjoying a sandwiches as he watches the wrath of God being unleashed on the place. Its shocking footage, and not for the faint of heart, but rest assured its not gory and its honestly impressive to see the roof peeled off the grandstand like a can of sardines.

As always, Soccerprose.com recommends you stay inside during a tornado, and not film it sitting next to the bloody window as you may get speared by flying bits of your clubs stadium. But if for some reason you find yourself with similar footage, feel free to send it along.
