Top 10 Football (Soccer) Stadiums In the World

Ever walked into a stadium and been completely awestruck by the sheer size, the energy, the history? It's something else, isn't it? Football stadiums aren't just buildings, they're temples of the sport. They're places where legends are born, rivalries explode, and passionate fans create an atmosphere unlike anything else.

From iconic bowls steeped in decades of glory to gleaming, modern architectural marvels, the world is home to truly incredible football stadiums. Each one boasts its own character, its own story to tell.
The Top Ten
1 Gelora Bandung Lautan Api Stadium, Bandung, Indonesia

Despite the surge, Stadium Gelora Bandung Lautan Api has not been in use by the Persib team, but the stadium is the grandest stadium in Indonesia, Asia, and even the world and is the pride of our citizens in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. I also cannot wait to watch the home games of Persib in this grand stadium.

The atmosphere would be perfect, home base of Persib Bandung. The seat will always be full of Bobotoh (Supporter of Persib Bandung) singing along the 90 minutes. Wouldn't be surprising if this stadium will be world-widely known in the near future.

Gelora Bandung Lautan Api is the home base for Persib Bandung. It will be a great stadium and the pride of West Java. Every time Persib plays a match, the supporters will always be there, yelling to support the pride teams.

2 Camp Nou, Barcelona, Spain

It's the largest stadium in Spain and one of Catalonia's best art. You will have the best stadium's atmosphere here.

Biggest club stadium in Europe. Steep-sided beautiful stadium. FC Barcelona, the best team in the world's home! "Més que un club."

Camp Nou is the best football stadium, more because it holds the best soccer team in the world, and the world's best players.

3 Wembley Stadium, London, England Wembley Stadium is a football stadium located in London, England, and serves as the home of the England national football team. Reopened in 2007 after extensive renovation, it has a seating capacity of 90,000, making it the largest stadium in the UK. The venue is known for its distinctive "Wembley Arch," a steel arch that stands 440 feet high. Apart from football, the stadium hosts a range of events... read more

Camp Nou? Nothing special. Just a huge bowl.

Wembley is perfection. The architecture, the atmosphere, it's legend. Nothing beats it.

Can't get any better! Top of my list! Wembley Stadium is the head of English football. It has hosted the FA Cup, the League Cup, and even the Champions League.

The home of football. Enough said.

4 Old Trafford, Manchester, England Old Trafford is a football stadium in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England, and the home of Manchester United. With a capacity of 74,994, it is the largest club football stadium in the United Kingdom, and the eleventh-largest in Europe.

Can anyone please point out why Old Trafford is the Theatre of Dreams? Well, because it is. The best reason is because it's simply the Theatre of Dreams. While Camp Nou is just some stadium that has a large capacity and looks boring, Old Trafford is the dreams of dreams. Wembley might look better, but come on, it's the main stadium in the UK.

Among the many great stadiums in the world, Old Trafford, or 'The Theatre of Dreams,' is my favourite.

It needs to be higher. They have the most fans in the world. At least top 3.

5 Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Madrid, Spain

I think the owner of this page is Indonesian because even the rank number 1 football team is Indonesia and rank number 1 stadium also Indonesia. In fact, the best football team is Real Madrid, and the best stadium is Santiago Bernabéu.

The Bernabeu is more beautiful than Camp Nou from both the inside and the outside. In addition, it has hosted Euro and World Cup finals, whereas Camp Nou hasn't.

Santiago Bernabeu is the best stadium of all time, and the fans there support their team so much. Real Madrid is awesome.

6 Allianz Arena, Munich, Germany

I think this is the most beautiful stadium in the world from what I have seen.

One of the most beautiful stadiums in the world.

The best one at this time.

7 Anfield, Liverpool, England Anfield is a football stadium in Anfield, Liverpool, England which has a seating capacity of 54,074 making it the sixth largest football stadium in England. It has been the home of Liverpool F.C. since their formation in 1892.

Well, a great stadium is not just about its size. It is also about the playing environment there and the history. The crowd in the environment makes a significant impact, and well, the glory also matters. And Anfield is easily top 3 stadium (arguably the best) when you consider all the aspects. It can be compared to none when a loud and energetic crowd sings: YOU WILL NEVER WALK ALONE.

Anfield is a very historic stadium. Despite its size, it contains a lot of history. You'll never walk alone, Liverpool.

Despite having about half the capacity of all the other stadiums, we have the best atmosphere, easily.

8 Azadi Stadium, Tehran, Iran

The largest event in the world!

Azadi Stadium is hell for Persepolis opponents.

It is home of Esteghlal Iran club and Iran national team. At one of the final matches of the Asian Champions League between Esteghlal and a Japanese team, 120,000 fans came to Azadi.

9 San Siro, Milan, Italy

The theatre of football. It is elegant, historical, and very passionate at the same time. It is the home of two giants such as Inter and AC Milan. Amazing when the two teams play each other in one of the most spectacular derbies worldwide.

I think San Siro deserves a 4th position in this ranking because it is a large and beautiful stadium.

I like that stadium.

10 Maracanã Stadium, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The best stadium where one can see the best football games being played.

What if Rio de Janeiro were to host a Super Bowl game?

The stadium of football.

The Contenders
11 Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, Mexico

The Azteca Stadium!

It may not be a piece of modern architecture, but it's definitely one of the greatest places to watch a game. The vibe you feel in there is impressive. All those chills you get when people scream, you really feel the passion for football. Not to mention the famous "Wave" in the crowd and the song "Cielito Lindo" every time the National team plays a game there.

It definitely blows your mind.

I love America.

12 El Monumental, Buenos Aires, Argentina
13 Westfalenstadion, Dortmund, Germany

To quote London's The Times:

"Borussia Dortmund's ground is a classic. Two huge end terraces (and they are terraces, with the use of safe standing) that fling noise down at the playing area with deafening intensity. This place was built for football and for fans to express themselves. Every European Cup final should be held here. The best atmosphere on the Continent on a game-to-game basis."

'Nough said.

Signal Iduna Park is just phenomenal. I went there to watch the game against Mönchengladbach in the 2015-2016 season, and I literally felt an earthquake in the stadium because of the crowd. And the stadium itself is just so beautiful.

No stadium has a southern stand like Signal Iduna Park. Definitely the best.

14 Soccer City, Johannesburg, South Africa
15 Emirates Stadium, London, England

Even Tottenham fans admit that the Emirates Stadium is the most beautiful stadium in England. Not only that, the atmosphere and the support provided by every single fan there is immense. And I don't mean the sort of atmosphere you get at West Ham's stadium, where everyone you see has a criminal record. I mean the sort of atmosphere where you can hear families with young children enjoying themselves just as much as the adult 'die-hard' fans are. All in all, it might not be the biggest stadium in the world (which most people voting in this list think that's what this list is about), but it's by far the most advanced and easily the most beautiful stadium on this list.

I go here every week, and I honestly think it is a benchmark for top league stadia. It is seriously advanced and sophisticated and against common belief has a fantastic atmosphere. There isn't a bad seat in the house!

PS Why are so many Persib Bandung supporters voting?

16 Stamford Bridge, London, England

Blue is in my blood.

The atmosphere is electric, and it's home to the best football club in the world.

17 Juventus Stadium, Turin, Italy

One of the best ambiances in Europe and despite its small size is one of the best. Its small size is so that it is always full and is very well made. Beautiful to look at for me it deserves to be in the top 5, it's better than the Allianz, Azadi. I don't know what the first one on this list is, but it is probably better than that.
