My favourite is the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow. 82 000 seats
It was opened in 1956

Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow (formerly Lenin Stadium )




Moscow '80, parade of Nations, best moments from 2:18 . The parade looks quite "military", but it was always like that until......Barcelona '92.

I would like to see an American Football game played in one of these like the one game in Wembely. Also I wish a US football team would design their new stadium like one of these.

A few pages ago people posted some stadia that weren't quite beautiful but had a
phenomenal landscape. Last vacations, I had the opportunity to watch a match at a small
but nice stadium in Rio de Janeiro state's countryside and hilly city of Nova Friburgo.

This is their stadium, named Eduardo Guinle, owned by football club Friburguense AC:

If it crashed it did so very gently. It shows no apparent damage.

It must be an illusion,but Luzhniki Stadium looks so much bigger in 1980 without the roof than it looks today.I actually prefer the 1980 ....Classical!...Saying that,I prefer Berlin Olympic without the roof as well.

Top ten truly iconic football (soccer) stadiums worldwide

I don't know if there's been a similar thread before. Apologies if there has been. List your top ten most iconic football (that is, soccer) stadiums around the world.

What makes a stadium iconic? A number of factors, IMO:

1. Fame - how well known is the stadium itself (rather than just the team/s that play/s there)?

2. Importance - how important is the stadium to the history of the game and what great matches have been played there?

3. Design - how architecturally unique, pioneering or imposing is (or was, when first built) the stadium?

4. Atmosphere - is the stadium renowned for having a special atmosphere?

5. Team - is it the home of one of the world's great club or international teams?

6. Overall - is this a stadium that is an event in its own right....a mecca for football fans....is it the kind of stadium that all true football fans should see and experience at least once, if they can?

After considering all of that, here's my top ten (in no particular order):

Maracana
La Bombonera
Azteca
Wembley
Anfield
Bernabeu
Camp Nou
San Siro
Allianz Arena
Westfalenstadion

Yes, it's there or thereabouts.

I didn't want to take too many stadiums from England, though. And while Man Utd are undoubtedly an iconic team, Old Trafford has never, IMO, been an iconic stadium in the way that, say, Anfield is.

Others that came close but which I ultimately rejected were Stadio da Luz, Dragao, Mestalla, Stadio Olimpico, Stade Velodrome, Ibrox, Parkhead, de Kuip and Estadio Centenario (Montevideo). Soccer City might well be one for the future.

Not feeling

Anfield OR Westfalenstadion.

Allianz..perhaps in some ways. It is an icon.
