5 outstanding football stadiums

The atmosphere in a football stadium is almost as important as the ball itself. A football game without atmosphere is just not real football. Every stadium is unique and brings its own atmosphere. In this blog you will discover 5 football stadiums that are just a little extra special!


  1. Allianz Arena, Germany

The Allianz Arena is the home ground of Bayern Munich and TSV 1860 Munich. You read it well, two different teams share this stadium. How this works? Simply change the color of the stadium. When Bayern plays in this beautiful stadium the whole thing turns red. If 1860 Munich plays, everything turns blue. This is what makes the football stadium so special. The opening match of the World Cup in 2006 took place in the Allianz Arena.


  1. Estádio Municipal de Braga, Portugal

You may recognize this stadium from the European Championships 2004 in Portugal. The football stadium is partly carved out of the Monte do Castro and therefore lies between the rocks. The stadium was designed by architect and Pritzker Prize winner Eduardo Souto Moura. It is one of the most expensive stadiums in Portugal. 


  1. The Float at Marina Bay, Singapore 

This football stadium in Singapore is the largest floating sports complex in the world. It was built when the country’s official stadium was rebuilt. Of course, we don’t have to tell you what makes this stadium so special. The construction of this stadium took no less than thirteen months. The football stadium stands on six pillars and is protected by rubber rings against ebb and flow. 


  1. Ottmar Hitzfeld, Switzerland

From the water to the air. The Swiss FC Gson has the record of the highest football field in its hands. At more than 2,000 meters above the ground. Fans go up by cable car to watch the match. Unfortunately, there is an artificial turf field, because grass cannot grow at that height.


  1. Voždovac Stadium, Serbia

FK Voždovac plays at the highest level in Serbia. Not only figuratively, but also literally. This team plays on the roof of a shopping mall. This 2013 stadium is also one of the few rooftop stadiums with official UEFA accreditation for international matches.
