I agree on Wembley, the history was killed, new stadium is just a new stadium... But it is not the home of football anymore.

Why so? There are aspects of that stadium that I find very beautiful; the massive cantilevers at the East and West ends are fantastic to look at. I understand why it's not to everyone's tastes, especially the interior views, but I find it rather striking from the outside and from above.

It's what makes this stadium so unique, I love it the way it is.

I believe that concrete is a fantastic material on stadiums designs!

Its practical, durable, and with careful design can be attractive. The new Kuwait stadium and the San Nicola have basically all concrete facades, and IMO they are stunning. On the other hand the San Siro and Twickenham are all concrete on the outside and IMO are two of the ugliest buildings of all time.

I love the look of the Dragao , and alot of that is the open ends and the monumental supports, if you just wrapped concrete skin the rest of the way around it would totally ruin the aesthetic appeal of it.

The stadiums of Manchester City and Aston Villa are also masterpieces.
Pics can be found here if you choose the clubs:

Couldn't you just bring a really tall ladder and watch the match for free?!

Although my top 5 are all already listed (Santiago Bernabeu, Munich Olympic, Ahtens Olympic, City of Manchester, Genova), there are some more Staduims at least deserving to be mentioned.

Hong Kong Stadium

Reason: Perfect venue in perfect surrounding.








Fritz Walter Stadium, Kaiserslautern, Germany

Reason: Situated on a hill like a temple, a weird but more than impressive construction







Some more nice pictures here: http://www.fck.de/galerie/stadion


Aker stadion, Molde, Norway

Reason: Greatest of the small European stadiums. Two tiers for 13.000 people.

Never have seen that Hong Kong stadium before, the location looks awesome and the stadium looks pretty good as well. The location reminds me a bit of L.A.'s Dodger Stadium at Chavez Ravine.

Was watching a pre season friendly being played there the other day, commentators mentioned it was going to be demolished in the near future as a larger stadium is being built elsewhere in Hong Kong.

Okay, here are mine in no particular order. I think my choice errs on the side of the 'brutal', but there is a touch of the romantic in there as well:

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, San Siro, Milan

A 'proper' football stadium, comparatively rare in Europe for its time. Distinctive and bold roof sits atop equally distinctive and bold concrete access structures.







Allianz Arena, Munich

A chameleon of a stadium reflects the colours of its two tenant clubs - and also the national team on occasion. Already a modern classic.







Estadio Azteca, Mexico City

Quite simply, the daddy. Only now does it begin to look dated, nearly 40 years after it first appeared in this guise.







Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City

Perhaps the most unusual choice on here. I've always loved its unashamed 'retro/futuristic' feel. If the Jetsons supported a team, they would play here. Proof that individuality can outlast current trends.







Lord's Cricket Ground, London.

Combines ancient and modern with a unique charm. Where else could you see something as historic as the Pavilion facing something as futuristic as the Media Centre?
