Although it was a terrible strain on our nerves : That game was fantastic , especially for its atmosphere in the stadium in Cardiff where France seemed to play "at home" !

That was my point !!! (but from a French angle )
I understood your point, it's why I posted the Wales response. That wasn't about the Haka, it was about the Welsh team refusing to move. Mine was posted from a Welsh angle.

When we speak about iconic football stadiums we shouldn't be so eurocentric. That's why I made longer list, including historical important stadiums from 2 most developed continents, Europe and South America + Mexico.

First top 10:

Maracana (Rio de Janeiro)
Centenario (Montevideo)
Bombonera (Buenos Aires)
Azteca (Ciudad de Mexico)
Wembley (London)
Old Trafford (Manchester)
Anfield Road (Liverpool)
Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid)
Camp Nou (Barcelona)
San Siro (Milan)


Next top 10

Monumental (Buenos Aires)
Morumbi (Sao Paulo)
Olympiastadion (Berlin)
Estadio da Luz (Lisbon)
Hampden Park (Glasgow)
Velodrome (Marseille)
Parc des Princes (Paris)
Olimpico (Rome)
Stadion Crvena Zvezda (Belgrade)
Ali Sami Yen (Istanbul)

Everyone has an opinion and a different top ten but it appears the thing that has come from this thread is that Wembley (both Old and its bastardization) is truly the world's most famous and most iconic stadium. There is no list it does not appear in unless i missed a post (possible) and if you average out its top banana.

Anyone bored enough to count the number of votes each stadium got so far?

From browsing through it it seems Wembley, Camp Nou, Bernabeu and San Siro are leading at the moment.

Don't let balkan rivalry cloud your judgment.

It's my opinion, the thing that i think makes a football stadium iconic is it's uniqueness to me. And the Markana had a unique atmoshpere and was the best in the balkans. That;s why i considered it iconic
