The football world is growing every day. Every football fan has a team they support and a local stadium they go to watch a football match live more often than not. That said, the need for bigger and better football stadiums has grown.
We all know about iconic stadiums that have been built so impressively that any football fan in the world would fancy paying a visit and that is why we have outlined a top list of most impressive football stadiums below.
Wembley, United Kingdom
Wembley is without a doubt one of the most iconic stadiums in the world. With a capacity of 90,000, the new Wembley stadium was reopened back in 2007, having been built at the same site where the old Wembley was.
Wembley has been voted as one of the most electric atmospheres in the world by most fans who have visited the place. The new stadium’s design has encompassed everything that was impressive about the original Wembley and has added more good impression to it. The Wembley Arch is beautiful to see both inside and outside Wembley.
The home of football, as they refer to it now, is now a commonplace that holds most prestigious football events both at local level, in the UK, in Europe and International football as well.
Allianz Arena, Germany
Alliance Arena is a wonderfully designed stadium and up until 2017 home of the two Munich-based football clubs; 1860 Munich and Bayern Munich. The Arena is the only stadium in Europe that can alternate by reflecting colours in effect of the team playing: Blue for 1860 Munich and red for Bayern. Since relegation 1860 Munich have moved to Grünwalder Stadium.
The Alliance Arena is quite an impressive stadium when viewed from the outside and the atmosphere inside the stadium is electric on matchdays. Apart from being a home of the Munich teams, the stadium holds international matches as well.
The Arena which boasts a 75, 000 capacity has absolutely written its name in the book of greatest stadiums for years.
Estadio Azteca boasts of a large capacity of 104,000 and it creates quite an impressive atmosphere. It is the only football stadium in history that has been able to host two World Cup finals. No wonder it cannot afford to miss on this list.
For England fan, however, it might remind them of the moment when Diego Maradona scored in what was referred to as ‘Hand-of-God’ goal for Argentina against England in one of the World Cup finals.
Aside from the interesting history, the stadium is well designed and the fact that it is 3rd largest in the world makes it one of the most impressive football stadiums in the world.
Santiago Bernabeu, Spain
With a capacity of 81,044, the Santiago Bernabeu is the home or Real Madrid football club of Spain. The club boasts of 12 European titles and that has secured the club’s place in higher echelons of the world football. For that reason, there could not be a better arena for such a club to play.
The stadium was opened in 1947 and has undergone two renovations with the aim of matching the Galacticos’ ambitions.
The stadium boasts of being home to some of the world’s best players over the years, including Zinedine Zidane, Ferenc Puskas, Ronaldo Luis Nazario and Cristiano Ronaldo all who the football world will live to remember.
Located in Rio de Janeiro one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Maracanã has gone down as one of the best football stadium any fan would fancy visiting. Having been built back in 1947, the stadium underwent 21st-century renovations that left it sparkling for 2014 FIFA World Cup. The stadium hosted the World Cup final that year and it left a mark on the many who were lucky enough to attend the world cup in Brazil.
The surroundings of the stadium are serene and amazing Christ the Redeemer statue, the famous symbol of Christianity is located at the Corcovado Mountain in the Rio De Janeiro City and it adds an impressive view of the Estadio Maracana.
