It should be noted that this list will not be limited to the aesthetic beauty of these buildings, but also to their importance in the history of sport and the feats and memorable moments they have hosted, in addition to their age, a detail that always impresses because of its relevance. that are maintained over time.

10. Beijing National Stadium

Definitely, if we talk about the most beautiful stadiums in the world, one of the last to surprise the entire planet by being impressive is the one also known as ‘The Bird’s Nest’.

Built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics and with a capacity of 91,000 spectators (at least in the Olympics), the most recognizable aspect of this stadium is its design, which really does look like a colossal bird’s nest.

9. Allianz Arena (Munich)

A relatively new stadium (opened in 2005), but one that quickly established itself as one of the most important in Europe, not only because it houses the mighty Bayern Munich (which ensures it will host several titles), but also because of its beautiful design that resembles a giant floating boat.

8. Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (Milan)

Beyond having almost 100 years of existence and being one of the most famous in Europe, the Giuseppe Meazza is a declaration that football does not have to be something that separates us, on the contrary, it must unite us.

Two of the most important clubs in Italy, AC Milan and Inter share this stadium, it even changes its name to ‘San Siro’ when the ‘red and blacks’ are local.

7.Camp Nou (Barcelona)

If Barcelona is ‘more than a club’, the Camp Nou is ‘more than a stadium’. For Barça fans, this venue is the stage in which the best examples of football in recent years have taken place. A place where football reached its highest levels of artistic expression.

The Barcelona of Lionel Messi and Pep Guardiola displayed unparalleled quality and the spectacular nature of the stadium made it all the more beautiful. Those times have passed, but the Camp Nou is still impressive.

6. The Bombonera (Buenos Aires)

How is it that a relatively small stadium, with a capacity for no more than 54,000 fans and somewhat relegated in technological innovations, can make the list? It is because La Bombonera is an icon of football.

With an unorthodox design (where half seems to be missing), the view is adorned by the passion of its fans, so much so that it is usual for novice visitors to attest to that football proverb that indicates that the stadium does not tremble, it beats.5. Azteca Stadium (Mexico City).

That image in which Diego Armando Maradona leaves a large number of Englishmen on the way to score ‘the goal of the century’ in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, remained an immortal symbol of the great feats that can be performed in the Azteca Stadium, one of the largest and most recognizable in the world. That is why its name stands out among the most beautiful stadiums in the world.4. Old Trafford (Manchester).

They call him ‘The theater of dreams’ and he is right. The Manchester United stadium has become an icon of one of the most followed clubs in the world, the connection between fans and pitch has lasted for more than 100 years. In moments of glory and decline, Old Trafford is always full of ecstatic red shirts, a party guaranteed.

3. Maracana (Rio de Janeiro)

The Maracaná is synonymous with football, both in moments of splendor, such as the celebration of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, and in moments of extreme failure such as the so-called ‘Maracanazo’.

At the time, this stadium was considered the largest in the world, in fact, the aforementioned final of the 1950 Brazil World Cup holds the record for the largest attendance in history for a football match (200 thousand spectators). Several renovations limited its capacity but its majesty remains. It was also the venue for the 2014 World Cup final where Germany was crowned champion.

2. Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid)

Real Madrid, the most successful club of all time, couldn’t not have a house that doesn’t live up to that figure. Many of the most memorable nights in football history were lived in this stadium.

In the middle of 2022, the Santiago Bernabéu continues to grow, since the completion of a new remodeling is scheduled for this year, which includes the implementation of 8 thousand more seats, a retractable field, the implementation of a hotel and a shopping center.

1. Wembley (London)

Wembley ceased to be the home of the English team to be something bigger, a true capital of football. In 2007, the new version of this stadium was erected on the rubble of the old one, so it can be said that this great sports venue maintains the soul and vivid memories of its predecessor.

With a capacity for more than 90,000 spectators, Wembley has also seen two Olympic Games (1948 and 2012), a World Cup final (1966) and concerts by the world’s best artists such as Elton John and Queen.
