Also along the same lines, what is the most improved league? MLB moving out of all the circular concrete multipurpose stadiums, MLS moving to SSS, German/korean/south african league stadiums improved by world cups?

No love for the South Korean K-League? Think about all the stunning venues built for 2002 World Cup involved. A few aren't up to the quality of others but no league can boast perfection.

lol, many many football (soccer) stadiums are open, the open ones are probably more than closed

and its not about "fear", its comfort, beauty, and to a small degree acoustics

if we want to compare fans , lol, america has far less to offer in comparisson to europe

English County Cricket might have had impressive grounds in the past. But with the pavilions plastered with advertisements the grandioseness of cricket grounds in England is certainly gone.

You sorted the Commerzbank Arena in Frankfurt in wrong.
The Eintracht Frankfurt dropped down into the second league, so currently the Commerzbank Arena would have to be counted in among with the second Bundesliga stadia. But they'll probably advance right back up into the first league this season, just like Hertha BSC did last season.

Lol exactly.

From the roofless(or mostly roofless) stadiums i guess from Europe i got a mention couple of the La Liga stadiums.

Camp Nou 99 354 seats

Santiago Bernabéu 80,354 seats



Talking about La Liga you got a mention Valencias new stadium that looks like this at the moment. Build of it was started 2007:



While this is how it should look like. Who knows when they got rest of the money to actually build that thing. Looks awesome, but maybe a bit too much to chew at once for Valencia.


Though as a whole Bundesliiga is much better than La Liga. So it's NFL + Bundesliga that to me still take top spots. I was wondering would we see people suggesting Premier league here, but seems like i'm not alone thinking that most of the stadiums look ok at best.
Would be very interested at seeing some Asian league arenas. Dunno nothing about those.

Damn, youre right, my fault. I hope Fortuna Düsseldorf and Eintracht Frankfurt will go up next Season, these stadiums need to be in the Bundesliga.

Premier League stadiums aren't beautiful. But neither are 90% of Bundesliga stadiums, for that matter. The only two that could be described thus are the Berlin Olympic stadium and the Allianz Arena. The remainder are a mixture of impressive (but not beautiful) or modern (but a tad bland).

Hands down, MLB wins the contest for the league with the most beautiful stadiums, IMO.

Your sight, I don't like these massive stands without a roof.
A roof serves for comfort and helps to keep the emotions IN the stadium!
I guess you've never been in a european stadium.....

True, but that's the thing. I find the overall quality of the arenas still much better than on Bundesliga than Premier League.
For some reason i just find pretty much all of the Premier league arenas old fashioned look wise(and not in a good way).
Something like Bremen, Leverkusen, Stuttgart already beats in looks pretty much all of the Premier arenas when you take the top 2-3 from both leagues imo.

Though of course we are talking about design here so we can go on about this discussion all day.

It looks like a warehouse with shipping container cranes, ugly.

I will never understand how a industrial and cold looking euro stadiums with this style of roof could even be considered attractive. I'm not saying all roofs are ugly because I do like soccer city and livestrong park's roofs.
MLB has hands down the best exteriors and its not even debatable.
