Stadiums

There ARE other teams(we'd have no-one to play otherwise) and here's where all-comers can discuss the wider world of football......

Stadiums

Post by boltonpepper » Fri May 07, 2021 9:57 am

Which stadiums are your favourite ones?

My favourite foreign stadiums:

La Bombonera (The Chocolate Box), extremely steep stadium in Argentina. The home of the famous Boca Juniors, the former club of Maradona:

Estadio Azteca, the huge stadium in Mexico City which hosted two World Cup finals:

The home of Borussia Dortmund, with "The Yellow Wall", the impressive standing section:

Can I have Highbury?!

Apart from The Emirates, Craven Cottage is my favourite by far, though I’ve not been to nearly as many away grounds as some of you.

Highbury was absolute class and a million billion times better than the Emirates. White Hart Lane was better than them both though. Shame that’s ‘gone’.

Of new stadiums I quite like the Etihad for some reason.

Behave! I’ve been to WHL, it was a dump! Least they kept part of Highbury as a listed building. Took my kids on the Emirates stadium tour last summer and ‘introduced’ them to Highbury. 15 years ago today was the last game there. I still can’t quite believe it!

How on earth can WHL ever come close to that?! 🔽

Another vote for Fulham here. That's got to be one of the nicest walks to an away end anywhere.

La Bombonera, Camp Nou, Bernabau and the Olympic stadium in Berlin were all enjoyable visits but being a neutral dilutes the experience somewhat.

Sunderland and Norwich are two of my recent favourites watching Wanderers.

I'd love to have visited Norwich's former ground, 'The Nest'. H&S would have a pink fit :D
