Of course, just havent had the oppurtunity to visit any! I know the NFL wants to play a regular season game in the new Wembley Stadium which would be cool (although theres nothing wrong with a traditional footy match). The new Emirates stadium is amazing, as are Old Trafford and Allainz Arena. There are many more.

BRENT,sorry,i didn't read the thread properly.
Your right,it would be amazing if a proper NFL regular season game could be staged at Wembley,but there is a chance that OLD TRAFFORD will host a TAMPA game,considering the the links Man Utd and Tampa have(owned the the Glazers)

Amen to that!

Anyway, I'm going to minimise the potential to look like a tit by uploading these one at a time. And so, without further ado, I give you, in second place:

2. Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin TX, USA (now DKR Stadium) (capacity then: around 80,000); visit to stadium not on matchday, March 1994.

Around Spring Break time in '94, I got my student load and bought a ticket to Austin. Had a great time for two weeks and found out just why Austin is regarded as one of the most vibrant places to go for a night out in the US!

Anyway, I killed some time there one morning while my mates were in a tutorial, sat watching the sprinters doing their start training. I was amazed that you could just wander at will around the place (although access to the upper tier was locked). I did walk right to the top of the concourse (eleven floors up as I remember!)

It will always be extraordinary to us over here that College football is such a significant part of the sporting landscape. When our University team played soccer games against other teams, they were lucky to get a crowd of 80. To see a stadium of 80,000 for (in one sense, at least) the equivalent thing in America is just bizarre. You can't even think of it as a 'Division 2' [archaic English term] to the NFL because the crowds are even bigger than that! In may ways to us, it just defies all logic!

Anyway, I'm sure you had a great time at Austin. I defy anyone not to!

Show a photo of your favourite stadium....

Olimpiyskiy Kompleks Luzhniki (Moscow). Capacity - 84745

Well, seeing as I can't say Wembley or Old Trafford, and edennewstairs has already mentioned the Reliant Stadium, I'm gonna have to choose another one of my favourite stadiums: The Olympic Stadium in Athens:










And I'd also like to give a quick mention to the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff:



It's a shame it won't have a lot of use when Wembley is complete, although seeing games being played in Wembley will wipe away any shread of pity I have for the Millenium stadium

I can't believe no-one's had this yet, so I'll claim it:

The Camp Nou, Barcelona (capacity: 98,934): surely the ultimate football stadium anywhere on Earth!

It is to my constant regret that, having gone to Barcelona on a stag party in May 2002, I decided against making my own pilgrimage, thinking everyone else would think me a bit sad. The next day, I found that a Catalan XI had played Brazil there in a pre World Cup warm-up match. Not only was the game an excuse for us all to go, but it was Brazil too!!











One day, I'll go back...
