Best grandstand going....

Tokyo Racecourse

(There are plenty of great grandstands around outside of soccer grounds, which apparently may surprise a few)

Best single stand in football without question is The Holte End, Villa Park.

Not just for it's size and volume, but the entrance, the history and the folklore that goes with it.

There are others that can compare and fall slightly short, but certainly not from outside the UK

Hard to argue against that one.

For baseball, it's gotta be Wrigley Field's bleachers.

For personal reasons, the Holmesdale Road stand at Selhurst Park.








Other than that, it's hard to argue with the Sudtribune.

how many people does the curva hold? It seems always full even when the rest of the stadium is not!
