Is the American baseball Parks nice looking?
I think that they are ordinary.

If the Olympics are invited, a nice museum will be built in Tokyo.

They are easily the most unique stadiums in the world, and i hope you arent trying to compare them to Japanese stadiums.

I'm no expert and remember, these are only my opinion. No real criteria used, just those I generally like.

1. Melbourne Cricket Ground
2. Wembley Stadium
3. Stade de France
4. Adelaide Oval
5. Allianz Arena
6. ANZ Stadium
7. Suncorp Stadium
8. Millennium Stadium
9. Estadio Azteca
10. Beijing Olympic Stadium

The question is, do you have just stadiums or arenas? Do you judge a stadium better that doesn't have an athletics track? Is a baseball stadium better or worse than a football stadium? If a stadium doesn't have a retractable roof, or movable seating or even any sort of roof, is it a bad venue?

No one will ever really agree on these will they. Whatever people choose as their top 10 is simply their opinion and someone, somewhere will always disagree with the selections.

I included stadiums under construction now. But, about planned stadiums, I excluded them because we can't be sure that they will be really built in the future or we will see what they look like in renderings in real life if they are built.

As this thread has gone well beyond the "top 10 stadiums" to just preferences then I love many, for many different reasons. 10 that come to mind are as follows:

The Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne
Home of Australain Football, History of over 150years including 56 Olympics, Massive size, part of Australian folklore and sporting identity.






Newlands Cricket Ground, Capetown
Just the most pictureque ground in the world me thinks, makes the Adelaide Oval look bland in comparison. Those pavillions are what cricket grounds are all about.




Twickenham, London
Love the history (including a Rugby World Cup final) and the visual arrangment of the place, with the huge first tier to smallest 3rd tier, gives the illusion of diminishing scale, leaving a vast and intimidating impression. The heavy concrete exterior adds to its colossal fortress like atmosphere. England crowd singing Swing low sweet chariot is magic at the old headquarters (of Rugby union for those that don't know the nickname).




Ellis Park, Johannesburg
Just a great looking Rugby stadium, my favorate stadium (any) from the early 80's, hostile place to play the Springboks. Another host of a Rugby World Cup final. The scene of one of if not the most powerfully symbolic sporting/cultural/political moments when the Springboks won the 95 cup over a powerful New Zealand.




Berlin Olympic Stadium, Berlin
History is obvious and just a beautifully renovated stadium.




Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City
Funky design strait from the Jettsons but has proved to out last all its contemporaries and will be renovated to last a generation longer.





Fukuoka Dome, never though I liked cookiecutters but I just love this one and its roof, maybe the colours, facade and simple interior, I just like it.


image hosted on flickr


LTU Arena, Dusseldorf
Love it, the facade, the interior, so strait, so german, looks so intimate. Better than most of the World Cup venues.




M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore
Don't care for the purple but love the rest. The stand arrangement is great.

image hosted on flickr




BC Place, Vancouver
This is more a representative choice as I've always had a soft spot for the marginalised pneumatic Domes. I just think those roofs look great. My home City Perth has a smaller one called the Burswood Dome (big enough area for soccer) which was never quite cost effective enough for rugby/soccer and is too big for Basketball in normal configuration, a bit of a lame duck but I love the novelty of the roof. I chose BC place as it is my fav of the lot. So what is is? Pontiac Silverdome, Metrodome, RCA Dome, BC Place, Tokyo Dome, Carrier Dome and the smaller Burswood Dome, non built since the late 80's.



Burswood Dome

If you are trying to do an impartial top ten then there has to be some criteria other than "I like these". Aesthetics has to be a part of it, but its got to factor in technical inovation, serious history, long term influence on more recent stadiums or a given sport ect. For instance the foward pass became legal in American Football in large part due to the fairly narrow field at Harvard Stadium, also its the exact same structure today (with almost nothing done too it) that went up in 1903, so it could potentially make the list. Wembley as the symbolic home of Association Football would make it for that reason. The Skydome, Sapporo Dome, Veltins Arena all can claim serious technical inovation. Stadiums like the Berlin and later Munich olympic stadiums were hugely influential, I am sure the MCG has been as well.

So if I were to make a list it might go

1. Panathinaiko Stadium, the original Stadium, it doesn't get more inovative than that


2. Skydome (rogers center) The first retractable roof, still one of the most practicle

3. Wembley, the home of the most popular sport on the planet, and quite iconic

4. Siatama Super Arena, converts from an excellent 22,000 seat arena to a 30,000 seat stadium by sliding the stands and concourse on one end 70m

5. Melbourne Cricket ground, tons of history influential to Aussie Rules football and Cricket

6.Munich Olympiastadion, the design, along with the park have been hugely influential, and IMO stunning

7. Harvard Stadium, the original American Football stadium, help cement the foward pass, with "rugby style" play as the way Amercan football is played. First reinforced concrete structure

8.Veltins Arena, retractable field, miles of beer lines, gotta love that fresh piped in taste.

9. Stade France, Convertable track/football design

10. Rose Bowl, probably sports holiest ground in N America, Hosted a WC final, Superbowls, portions of olympics, crowned numerous NCAA champions and of course the Rose Bowl Game.
