Best Sports Stadiums - A Look At Stadiums Around the World

Things are not looking good for the World Cup Final in Rio in 2014 with a condemned stadium and others in need of serious work but as with all these events it’ll all work out right in the end. Many sports fans will be hoping to travel to Brazil to cheer on England and hoping to enjoy a fabulous atmosphere in a world class stadium.

If you’re a sports fan where are the best stadium experiences in the world and what can you expect to experience there?

The Rose Bowl:
Rose Bowl Head to Los Angeles to see the ultimate American Football game when the winner of the Pac 10 Championship meets the winner of the Big 10. Played at one of America’s biggest stadiums hosting 95,000 fans, the atmosphere is loud but friendly with plenty of sideshows for the build-up. You can gorge yourself on typical American fast food and beer and even if you haven’t got a clue what is happening, you’ll have an experience never to forget.

Camp Nou:
Nou Camp Europe’s biggest stadium and home of arguably Europe’s biggest football team FC Barcelona, it’s one of the world’s best grounds for watching football. Barca seem to be electrified when playing there and you can be assured of real soccer treat and almost 100,000 fellow supporters will be cheering along with you.


Rungrado May Day Stadium:
Rungrado May Day Stadium This is a strange one for it’s in North Korea and has been used for some unappetising events as well as sports. It’s hosted a ‘mass games’ North Korea’s version of the Olympics; gymnastics as well as gruesomely being the setting for executions of those committing treason against the state. With a capacity of 150,000, it’s the biggest non-motorsport venue in the world but sadly wasted in this bizarre country.

Yas Marina Circuit:
Yas Marinas Not a stadium this time but the venue for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Based loosely on the Monaco circuit it has 21 bends on this course constructed on a man-made island. Not wanting to waste any of the ground, the complex also includes a theme park, entertainment complex and shopping. It’s especially spectacular illuminated at night.

Yuva Bharati Krirangan:
Yuva Bharati Krirangan It sounds a little strange, but it’s probably the world’s most spectacular cricket ground, partly because it’s the world’s largest but also because the orientation of it means that spectators at night games get the best pre-match entertainment by way of the stunning sunsets over the ground. Built in Calcutta, the ground’s name translates as Salt Lake Stadium and plays host to IPL games as well as test matches.

Old Trafford:
Old Trafford England’s answer to them all discounts Wembley because only international matches are played there. Instead we head north to Manchester and Old Trafford which has witnesses some of the best football games in the UK, if not the world. Full of atmosphere and history, it’s the mecca of football fans from across the globe.
