What was the measuring criteria? I would have had Loftus Versfeld and Ellis Park in South Africa at least.......Yarrow Stadium, The Greenyards (Melrose, Scotland)??????? like I said, what criteria is applied here?

I think most rugby purists would agree that Croke Park, while a fantastic stadium and an excellent advertisement for what an amateur sport can build, is not, at all, a good rugby stadium. For that matter, it's not a rugby stadium at all. The pitch area at Croke Park is 20 metres too wide and 30 metres too long for it to be a good rugby stadium.

Ultimately, there does seem to be some bizarre mix of standards here; some are objectively good stadia that aren't necessarily good for rugby, while others are objectively poor stadia that are actually excellent places to watch rugby. I don't think anyone here would argue that the Greenyards is a good stadium, yet it is an excellent place to watch rugby. I would assume the same of Yarrow Stadium. The result is that the list makes little sense - if the Greenyards is included, Croke Park shouldn't be and vice versa. The ten best places to watch rugby and the ten best stadia in which rugby is played are two different things.

Stadio Flaminio.. in the world top 10 list...

And Stade Aimé Giral...

What about MurrayField
What about Stade de France (last venue of the RWC final)
What about the new rugby stadium in Montpellier :





i think their first criteria is the atmosphere, but it seems very subjective to me....

Did anyone mention Croke Park? Dublin Ireland.

Not a bad seat in the place.

Your all time favorite stadium

Alright so out of every stadium in the world what would you pick as your #1 favorite? Remember now this is out of any sport so its quite a wide subject...

I would have to pick the Nou Camp soccer stadium.

Your favorite sporting venues architecture

What are your favorite sporting venues when it comes to architecture? Mind that this doesn't need to be big ones, all sizes are good.
