i would put the rose bowl on the list. I would not put Soldier Field on t.he list because although it has history, it isnt as important as you may think The Cotton Bowl is important as well. It seems as if most of our most historic stadiums as being demolished or phased out in favor of more modern ones.

I agree, but generally people dont know it, as in people who are not stadium buffs or football fans, but ask general public what is wembley, san siro, bernabau rose bowl maracana etc they will say a famous stadium this is the point i was trying to get across, although in terms of important events hosted then wembley etc still are top of the list.

The new Phoenix Cardinal Stadium was finished during 2007. The 2008 NFL Super Bowl was hosted by this new stadium. Its located on the west side of Phoenix. And its new.

The title should be 'top 10 soccer stadiums'.

There are other sports besides soccer.

Where are the cricket stadiums, the hippodromes and motor racing tracks.

A hippodrome just in Melbourne alone gets over 100k average during it's peak season.

Tokyo also gets those numbers regularly.

You make a good point because it's all subjective based on what people are familiar with. Sports Illustrated had that top 20 sports venues in the world list where 16 of the 20 were in the states including a little league baseball stadium. Ask somebody in India and they'll name a list of cricket venues.

BTW I dont like circular stadiums, people are very far from the game. It's for that reason i have not put MCG or Las Ventas bullring. Is not only the sport, Maracaná it's one of the most famous football stadiums in the world and I dont like it because of his shape.

My personal favorite soccer stadium is:

The Tivoli in Aachen

but sadly it will only be "alive" (used) for 8 more matches this season until May 24th. It really does have some very, very special atmosphere. Even though it doesn't seem all that spectacular, because it's not big or extraordinary in any obvious way. But it does have some magic you won't find anywhere else. This little stadium actually is the reason why I became a fan of Alemannia Aachen and started watching the second and first Bundesliga and not just the national Teams.
I went there because a friend invited me and I fell in love with it like many others, right away. Before this first visit, I just couldn't Identify myself with any other German team, like those in Frankfurt for example, where I grew up. In fact the Tivoli actually does have his own "personality". (yes "his", because this stadium here in Aachen is one of the very few that's adressed in german as a "he" not as an "it".)








But the one other stadium that I really miss here in this "hotlist" of the most beautiful stadiums is actually


"THE ONE AND ONLY" true Number one in the world!!!


Seriuosly there's absolutely NO way around that stadium whatsoever!


It just is the best of the best of the best.


And folks, yes it's old, very old.


And it's beautiful very beautiful.





And if one would make a new list of the wonders of the world it surely would be in there also:







The Colosseum

Agreed about Soldier field, and in general how "historical" can one claim soldier field to be when the only thing left of the old stadium is the exterior facade? It is a totally new building now with little to no history.

In any case, here are my top 5. I really couldn't pick a FAVORITE so they are in random order:

Stade de France - Paris


Wembley Stadium - London


Panathinaiko Stadium - Athens


Camp Nou - Barcelona


Olympiastadion - Berlin
