Ibrox is my favourite. The facade is just beautiful and the inside is so clean and smart.
I also like the Monaco stadium. Small yet perfectly formed.

Not the most modern and far from the best but it still creates the best atmosphere of any other ground in Britain.

Old Trafford. Last night, 74,000 people and the best mexican wave I've ever seen, From where I was it looked impressive and it went round about 30 times.
Video from the South Stand I was in tier two of the east stand to the right.

Stuff like that happens all the time at Hampden and it looks nicer as it is a perfect bowl. Still one of the best examples of a Mexican Wave I have seen, though.

Maybe we should make it stadia other than your team.

Even the people in the wheelchairs at the end of the clip stood up

In England maybe Banjo... Not a touch on either Celtic or Rangers for creating atmosphere.

Last time I was at Goodison I got a headache from looking into those spotlights half way up along the front of the main stand. Not the best viewing for a midweek fixture.

Surely not for architectural reasons, but for the atmosphere- it got my heart. Stadium in Krakow, home of 10 time Polish champions- Wisla Krakow.
South Stand, party finished (sadly, cause it should have been read long ago)


North stand, currently under constrution:


Fans at the historical Eastern stand:



And the main- western stand.


When the North stand will be finished the capacity will be 20 347 seats, after all planned works it will rise to 35 000, but our authorities make it look almost impossible...

That's the ground of a club that has been 10 times Polish champions?!!!

We have better grounds than that even at Conference level. It looks a right dump.

Heh, the topic is not about which is better, but which is one's favourite
1. Comparing Polish football to British is "not the most intelligent" thing to do to say the least. I realize where we are in Europe, but to turn it all around- I've seen a lot of games from the Championship and Premiership level and not one of them compares to the atmosphere in Krakow, with the over-promoted Anfield's KOP to start with...
We're definatelly not Turkey or Greece in that matter as well
2. This stadium used to seat 35 000 people in the past, but it never was and propably won't be impressive for a Brit. Still, some respect please...
Cheers

No I'm not having a go at you and I appreciate the thread is about favourite stadiums and not the best, I'm just surprised that a ground like that is home to a team that has won the title 10 times.

I know a poor country like Poland is never going to have great stadiums like we get in Britain but I am still slightly surprised at the state of that one you posted.

It looks like the fans certainly make the most of it anyway and know how to create a good atmosphere.

My favourite stadium is Twickenham, I know it's ugly from the outside and has issues regarding transport, but the atmosphere is superb.

Defo, Twickenham is a superb ground. After all, you go to a ground to be inside and not outside, so the outer appearance is not an issue here.

Don't be so sure.
Grounds are built to host games. The last grounds built in England are more like malls - plenty of things are to be found there and occasionally there could be some foorball game.

I see this as a major shortcoming for football. Fortunately, EE countries still cannot afford to spend so much money on football malls. Thus, some nice football-only grounds may appear very soon.

Football does not need luxury grounds. I understand that you try to stress your sense of pride with the English football grounds but don't be so pejorative to other people, who have not had the chance to live in more prosperous countries.

As for the Polish ground - I bet there are many grounds in EE countries where a guy like you, ignorant of what happens around the world, would feel his life threatened. No offence intended.

Twickenham is a fine, fine ground from the inside (if a little bland) but one thing it doesn't have is a superb atmosphere. It's shockingly bad.

In fact, I can't think of any stadium in London (now that the Boleyn Ground has lost its intimacy) that has a consistently good atmosphere.
