Rugby is a sport that has always embraced tradition, and the heavy emphasis it has always put on the social side—nowadays mostly in the amateur ranks—has seen many of its great venues take on iconic status over the years.
Rugby fans enjoy themselves and tend to make the occasion of supporting their team home and away one to experience.
The end result is an atmosphere that is unique in the sporting world. It's different from the brilliant atmosphere of football matches, perhaps because winning has never been the only thing that matters for fans.
Fans make the grounds, so it is not coincidence that most of the grounds on this list are in Europe, where the annual Six Nations pilgrimage has created its own culture within the sport.
Here is a list of iconic grounds that have given so many memories over the years, in no particular order except for the Millennium Stadium: the greatest stadium in rugby, perhaps in the world.
