This is not a comprehensive list. How could it be? Football stadiums are beloved by the fans who visit them all over the world, so who are we to tell you the best ones to go to?
All we can do is point you towards a few of the most alluring venues and justify their place in this conversation.
The Maracana in Brazil is a fine place to start—an iconic venue that has already hosted one World Cup final and will host another in 2014.
Milan’s San Siro was built in the 1920s and has played host to countless historic matches since. You could say the same about Manchester United’s Old Trafford and Liverpool’s Anfield stadium.
We also visit Glasgow and Munich, and end up in the crazy surrounds of Mexico’s intimidating Azteca.
