I was scrolling through the list waiting to mention this field. Stopped to watch a local game here en route to Machu Picchu. It’s a stunning venue
Have a look at Estádio Municipal de Braga. And Bordeaux. Two of my favorites
I can always appreciate Wrigley, even as a Brewers fan. I love how it's just tucked away in a neighborhood. Like, there's people that live just across the street. You're just driving down some local streets and all of a sudden, there's Wrigley out of nowhere right in front of you
Based on the pictures, I'm assuming backdrop was an important factor in rankings these. Hence why Pebble Beach surrounded by the coastline made the list and ANGC surrounded by Augusta neighborhoods did not. Also, Cypress Point s/b listed over Pebble IMO.
Southerner who grew up on SEC football living in Seattle area now....Husky Stadium is absolutely worth a visit and might be my favorite environment in all of CFB. Especially if you get a Sailgaiting package booked to pregame!
Just moved here and so glad I read this comment because now I absolutely will be trying out sailgating in the fall… might be the only way possible to convince me there’s better tailgating than my Hokies
You won’t be disappointed. A truly unique CFB experience.
But beware, you should be booking your charter now or finding a boat some other way. There are some public cruises with Argossy I think. But tickets sell fast.
Etter Google-søket kan jeg bekrefte det. Dette er gamlebanen til EB (Eiðis Bóltfelag). Den nye ligger et par kraftige steinkast inn mot sentrum. Den gamle perlen brukes som campingplass 😥
EB er halvparten av elitelaget EB/Streymur. De bruker banen til Streymur, við Margír.
Omg god it’s football, not soccer. What possible logic is used when a game where people run with the ball in the arms for 59 mins and is maybe kicked ten times in an entire game.. Called football.. a joke lol
They still dump the trash straight off the donkey into the sea. Used to always have globs of oil in the water from the flushed out tanks of the oil tankers. You should visit Hydra, David. Not too far from Paris.
I went to school here for a year!
It is usually not nearly this beautiful because it fucking rains almost every single god damn day, it’s always foggy as shit, and the leaves are only that color for like 3 seconds total
📍Cruit Island Golf Club, Kincasslagh, Donegal. If you get a chance during Summer 2021 take a trip to Cruit Island on the west coast of Donegal. For golfers and non golfers alike, the incredible coastline is a sight to see! This is the signature 6th hole at the course. ⛳️🏌🏻♂️
I've been to Newlands. It is beautiful. But I've also been to Pukekura Park, and I'd have to side with Richie Benaud, who felt that Pukekura Park was the most beautiful cricket stadium in the world. But it is close.
Closest to any I’ve been is seeing PSG’s stadium twice from the Peripherique and then releasing we’d missied our turning twice! Also walked alongside that stretch of water in Venice but didn’t realise there was a pitch on the other side of the wall!
Impressive! Also Torrey Pines @ La Jolla, CA and St. Andrews @ Scotland. I know, golf and golf. I've only been to a couple of the places you listed of course, but it was a fun journey to take here! Great thread.
This is an amazing thread.
I would love to see if you can find the basketball court in Guatemala City that is near the edge of a waterfall. One of the coolest courts/fly overs.
Could never find it when I google it.
I’m a Chiefs and Royals fan myself, and those are nice stadiums, but the acres of surrounding parking lots can’t compare with the breathtaking surroundings of the stadiums on this list. The list seems to be more about surrounding scenery than the stadiums themselves.
I wish I had an elevated pic of that from behind that clubhouse with the snow capped mountains and north shore. In terms of rugby/cricket pitches that has to be in the top 10 worldwide. It's a treat to play against @VanRowClub1886.
Great list. A few more I would mention:
Queenstown Event Centre in New Zealand
Arnos Vale Cricket Oval in Saint Vincent
And for my money, the nicest view in a US stadium - Folsom Field at the University of Colorado
Only got thru about 20 but Oh Em Gee...absolutely beautiful. I cant take it...I need to go to these places Now!!! I dont even care too much about soccer outside of the world cup but HEY ZEUS!!! I wanna go to Norway!!! Might even pick up golf, tennis to enjoy some of these venues!
