3 Most Famous Football Stadiums around the World

Football Stadium

There are thousands of football stadiums around the world, with each holding at least one unforgettable moment for particular teams in the country. With football being one of the most important games on earth, certain football stadiums are pretty famous as well. Among others, the top three of such stadiums would include;

• the Maracana stadium in Rio De Janeiro,

• the Arena auf Schalke in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, and

• the Wembley Stadium in England

Each of the above three football stadiums is famous for one specific reason that is worthy of commemoration. The Maracana stadium in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil is famous for holding almost every single match of the Brazilian Cup with around 60,000 attending every single day of the season. The unique part of this stadium is the crowd itself, filled with passion that is unmatched in any other part of the world. The Arena auf Schalke in Germany is famous for being one of the most technologically advanced stadiums in the world, with its movable lawn in the south-west area that moves outwards to get some sunshine when the roof is closed. The Wembley (New) stadium goes without saying, for being the most famous in media; with most high-rise English matches taking place here. It’s also notably the most expensive stadium in the world.
