You should count Centenario in Montevideo as one of the greatest and most important stadiums in football history. It's of the football tempels in South America, like they are Maracana, Morumbi, Bombonera, Monumental.

you are right, home of the first WC, still lack of international events since then, plus the facility could use alot of work.

1. Nou Camp - Barcelona

Home to (at the moment) the best club in the world. A magnificent temple of football old and new. Barca fans may not be the most vocal, but it's sheer size is it's intimidation factor. Imagine being a Real player walking out onto to the pitch for a clasico and seeing this:


2. San Siro - Milan

Two of the world's biggest clubs, and a design that is completely unique. The first English team to win in the San Siro? Not Manchester United, not Liverpool, but Crystal Palace in the 1971 Anglo-Italian Cup, courtesy of a Steve Kember volley (our one claim to fame in Europe).



3. Wembley

The old one embodied tradition and passion in football. The new one is a fantastic arena and, given time, will become just as synonymous with football and England as the old one. It looks like becoming a fortress for the national team as well.



4. Anfield - Liverpool

Personally, I think it's a tad overrated in the Premiership. Still, there is no doubt that Anfield lives for the European Cup, when it turns into something very special. Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and the Emirates don't get anywhere near it for atmosphere during the big games.



5. Westfalenstadion - Dortmund

Probably the most atmospheric stadium in Europe. For so long an impregnable fortress of the German national team, that all came crashing down in two blistering minutes against Italy in 2006. The Sudtribune against Schalke matches anything from around the world.


6. Maracana - Rio De Janeiro

Let's face it, when we think of football, the names that come to our heads are those of Pele, Garrincha, Zico, Socrates, Ronaldo. England gave football to the world, but Brazil have taken it far beyond anything the game's creators could have imagined. The Maracana is their temple, and the boys in yellow will be giving their all to win in their home stadium in 2014.



7. Centenario - Montevideo

The host of the first world cup final, and a big part of International football's most played fixture, Uruguay vs Argentina. Strikingly unique and a real cauldron when in full voice.



8. Bernabeu - Madrid

Fans of Manchester United or Barcelona might not agree, but I personally think Real Madrid is the biggest name in football. 31 La Liga titles and 9 European Cups says it all. Di Stefano and Puskas. Butragueño and Sanchez, Ronaldo (the proper one) and Zidane.



9. La Bombonera - Buenos Aires

Football is a sport that captions passion like few others can. Nowhere is that passion more clear than La Bombonera on derby day. It's a shame that it's very possible it's days are numbered.



10. Azteca - Mexico City

Two world cup finals, including possible the greatest team to ever grace the world cup. Add to that it's incredible size and the Azteca has to be on the list.

But wait... why Wembley? Do you mean old Wembley or new one? Because there is nothing iconic in new Wembley, old stadium doesn't exist anymore. So, it's only the name. Otherwise we can say that also Estadio da Luz in Lisbon is iconic.

Wembley hosts cup finals and play-off finals. More than a dozen of teams play their biggest game of the season there. It is the place of great triumphs and synonymic with glory. Wembley Stadium is by far the most iconic stadium in the world.

You're right, to an extent. The new Wembley has yet to inherit the palpable sense of history and tradition that the old Wembley had in spades.

But give it time.

In the meanwhile, Wembley is still Wembley. The name has a magic all of its own. "Wembley" stands for something. It stands for the home of the country that gave the sport of Association Football to the world. It stands for the home of the country with by far the most globally followed league around the world. It stands for the venue of the FA Cup final - by far the most famous and coveted of all domestic Cup finals around the world.

And then there is the fact of the stadium itself. The unique arch; the sheer scale; the lavish expense of the place. All those factors also contribute to making the new Wembley indisputably one of the most iconic stadiums in world football.
