What is the Best European Stadium to Travel to for a Football Match?


If you are a football fan then the chance of watching a game in a famous football stadium is probably something you can’t resist.

If you get the chance to travel to watch a game in Europe where you choose to go to? Maybe one of the following stadiums would interest you.

Camp Nou, Barcelona

The massive Camp Nou holds over 99,000, which makes it the biggest football stadium in Europe and the 4th biggest in the world. Despite the massive size, the stadium is usually pretty much full. There is often an unbeatable atmosphere at the Camp Nou, especially on Champions League nights and during matches against fierce rivals Real Madrid. Public transport links here are good but with so many people trying to get home and many midweek games kicking off very late it can be very late before you get to bed after a game here.

Wembley Stadium, London

While the Camp Nou is the biggest football stadium in Europe, the iconic Wembley isn’t far behind it. The original Wembley once held  massive crowds, with some report suggesting that the FA Cup final in 1923 attracted well over 200,00 spectators. These days it has a 90,000 capacity but is still capable of generating an incredible atmosphere, especially when there is a cup final being played or the English national team have an important game there.

Allianz Area, Munich

The home of Bayern Munich is rightly seen as one of the world’s best places to watch a game of football. It holds just over 75,000 and is, perhaps surprisingly, only the third biggest football stadium in Germany. It is one of the best looking football arenas as well, being the first one that can completely change colour outside. It is easy to get here by subway, with a park helping guide people to the stadium from there. Of course, the football played inside the Allianz Area is pretty sensational these days as seen in the football betting site at William Hill wherein Bayern Munich is pretty much at top of the rankings.

Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Madrid

If we go back to Spain, we can find another incredible football stadium graced by a top class team. The home of Real Madrid is pretty special and holds up to 81,000 spectators. There is currently a redevelopment plan to increase the capacity to 87,000 at an astronomical cost. The place has been around since 1947 and is another stadium in which you can watch some of the best football around while enjoying an incredible atmosphere.
