The British football grounds featured in this guide are some of the most iconic in the whole world.Some stadiums have celebrated more success than others but each ground has its own rich heritage and unique atmosphere.Rangers had a firm at the time who used to go around in butcher's coats!Also witnessed the Vodka injected into half time orange as well.But for teams going head-to-head with Barcelona, it’s an energy sapping stadium, with the fans on top of you, and the team passing it around you like they’re on the training field just down the road.For Luis Figo however, it’s an arena which will no doubt bring up mixed emotions.From pigs’ heads to the magical Lionel Messi, Barcelona’s Nou Camp stadium really has seen it all.Of course it’s remembered as a special ground for many clubs, not least Manchester United who lifted the Champions League there in 1999.
Since 1944 the steep inclines of the Bernabeu terraces have loomed down on the hallowed turf to the chants of Hala Madrid. Not only has the ground welcomed some of the great players on the planet, but Madrid fans have been treated to 30 league titles, 10 Copa del Reys, and 10 Champions League titles.It’s also a charmingly quirky place, whose rickety turnstiles (which, like the Johnny Haynes stand, are listed) and red-brick facade have the aura of a different, gentler age.Craven Cottage was designed by the Glaswegian architect Archibald Leitch, who built 20 major football stadiums in the UK—including Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge, which has long overshadowed its less glamorous neighbour.The noise which rings out on a weekly basis creates one of the most intimidating atmospheres in Europe, and they’re not afraid to turn on their own players too with Gareth Bale on the end of a flurry of abuse during the 2014/15 season.The El Clasico of course sees the decibel levels turn up a notch, and many a Barcelona side has fallen when Madrid have had the 12th man on their side.The Lane can be intimidating outside on derby days. Although most of Millwall's hoolies are banned from the ground most of them live in the surrounding council estates so they can't exactly be subject to a 4 mile exclusion zone around the stadium so walking to the tube station or to the pubs can be tasty! Andrews is the worst the New Den is pretty bad, glad we went on the coach and did'nt have to walk from the station.I have to say St Andrews and Molineux as well, those brummies really do hate us northerners for some reason. I once went by train and underground to the old Den.From Craven Cottage to Wembley, From Wrexham Racecourse to Old Trafford, find out what makes each of these stadiums so special.Fulham’s home ground has a perfect Thames-side location, tucked away next to elegant Bishop’s Park in one of the most discreetly well-heeled areas of London.In fact, this five star rated, 33, 296 capacity stadium was the scene of a post-game tragedy where 21 people where trampled as fans rushed to celebrate a win. It boasts of an incredibly vocal fans base which helps place this stadium on our list.The stadium seats 66,000 people, but when standing room is allowed, the attendance can reach 70,000.
