You could drop a car on to the roof at Forsyth Barr Stadium and it wouldn't impact it! 

Forsyth Barr Stadium has the first ever permanent roof over a natural playing surface, using ETFE (Ethylene Tetrafluoroetheylene) - a transparent roofing material that allows grass to grow underneath. The ETFE roof is designed to maximise sunlight, angles towards the north to optimise sun in the Southern Hemisphere winter.
