10 Best Football Stadiums In The World

Wembley Stadium

As the world’s most popular sport, football has lead to the development of thousands of stadiums, and some that are very special indeed! With national stadiums such as Wembley holding around 100,000 people, the structures themselves are highly impressive.

However, as well as being huge, and therefore impressive feats of engineering, the worlds football stadiums hold many memories and are the places of dreams for footballers and fans alike. In this list I will look at what are, in my opinion, the 10 greatest football stadiums in the world.

10. The Azadi Stadium

Inaugurated in 1971, the Azadi Stadium is home to the Iran national football team as well as Esteghlal and Persepolis. With a capacity of over 80,000 and part of a much larger sporting complex, this stadium is surrounded by a river, swimming facilities, and football training pitches.

The whole site is highly impressive, and with the stadium at its centre, it is a striking example of Iran’s financial power and desire to compete in the world of sport. I feel it is worthy of a place in the top 10 as a sign of the Middle-East’s ever rising presence in the world of football.
