Austria's Rapid Vienna have invited fans to help demolish the football club's stadium, offering the chance to unscrew seats, chisel walls and cut out bits of the goalnets to take home. Prices at Saturday's "Demolition Party" include 19.77 euros ($24.94) -- the year the Gerhard Hanappi Stadium was built -- per seat, 18.99 euros for some net and five euros for a slice of turf. "We will provide the necessary tools, naturally with all safety precautions taken into account and with employees standing by," the club said. Thirty-two-time Austrian champions Rapid Vienna are currently constructing a new, 22,000-seater stadium which is due to be completed in 2016. In the meantime they will play in the Ernst Happel Stadium, the Austrian capital's biggest.
