I've just realised I've also been to the Millennium Stadium and City of Manchester Stadium (in athletics mode) but can't be bothered changing my list

Okay, here is my top 10 (only existing, in use, and those I have visited or see on television regularly)

1. Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, no doubt the best stadium in the world
2. Camp Nou, Barcelona
3. San Siro, Milan
4. Old Trafford, Manchester
5. Arena Auf Schalke, Gelsenkirchen
6. Millennium Stadium, Cardiff
7. Bernabeu, Madrid
8. Maracana, Rio de Janeiro
9. De Kuip, Rotterdam
10. Anfield, Liverpool

I like the New Wembley Stadium very much, big and beautiful! On the other hand, I find the new Allianz Arena quite ugly. Don't know much about the US-stadiums, but I like the Heinz Field and the Reliant Stadium.

I find the tiers of the Bernabeu, and some other Spanish stadiums for that matter, damn right scary...why are they so steep?!

Well, my list isn't any better than others. However, I am going to try to expand the mind a bit and not focus on one sport alone, like many here are doing. So, with that in mind, here's mine, in no order:

Bombonera - Boca Juniors Argentina - Just because...you can't argue with a legendary ground and fans





Newland Rugby Ground - South Africa - By far, the best rugby ground in the world. Better than Twickenham





Yankee Stadium - New York - The home of legends (of baseball, anyway)





Lambeau Field - Green Bay - The one nod I give to the *other* football





(old) Wembley Stadium - London - the "real" Wembley IMHO, not its high tech, post-modern replacement





Estádio Azteca - Mexico City - Can't argue against two World Cups and an intimidating atmosphere





Munich Olympic Stadium - Munich - Probably the only case where an athletics ground is being "ruined" by fussball.





Wimbledon - London - I'm surprised this doesn't get mentioned





Seoul World Cup Stadium - Korea - An absolute dream of a place for futebol





Stade de France - St. Denis - I dislike the French but can't argue with its construction
