Atmosphere is nice there but still, that is not the only thing that you should consider when talking about 'iconic' stadiums... And there is better atmosphere on some other Balkan stadiums...

It's not biased. I just know what a true icon is.

I wouldn't know for the whole of the world. Despite being an avid football fan. Nobody really knows apart from the most famous.

The likes of Wembley, Anfield, Old Trafford, San Siro, Bernabeu, Nou Camp, Old Mestalla, Celtic Park etc.

For the UK though.

Iconic ... well. Iconic to me says something which are easily recognisable and you know straight away which team plays there, even if you're not a complete football buff and for me those are. These are from the logo's, to its colours, to its history which is why this has to be in the top 10 in Britain.

Everyone knows who plays at the traditional golden palace, the custard bowl ... Molineux. Its bright orange. One of the most recognisable logos in British football, A history which every football fan in the country knows about. You cant mistake the stadium with any other. The largest TV's in english football in two corners of the pitch. The floodlights that were unique when built. It's the definition of Iconic.

I dunno, there's so many iconic stadia worldwide, it's better to do a top-3 or top-5 by country, THEN a world list.

I think every stadium big or small famous or not is Iconic to someone in the same way every church is. That is one of the major aspects of a stadium is that it becomes a symbol in its own area/city/region, a focal point for the community, somewhere that history is created, be it a world cup final or the local athletics meeting. 'Most' Iconic can it actually be defined perhaps not, most famous/heard of I think can possibly be defined and as mentioned I think it has to be the old Wembley, certainly based on the posts in this thread.

52,000 the other 2 sides are smaller, if it was able to have the same tier structure all around the stadium i believe capacity would be around the 70,000 - 75,000 mark

Nice. I like this Stadium!
It has 3 very nice tiers.
It looks bigger than a 50.000 seater stadium.

They didn't leave early because they were locked in the ground. Skysports 10 mins after the game had finished. The camera pans around the ground to show the United end full. You don't have a clue.

Oh sorry my mistake, but still the arena is awesome, and we should be proud of it now because believe me, in the future Ukraine will have much more bigger and better stadiums, and when that time comes, this arena won't be as popular as now.
