Fans Have Voted For The Top 25 Football Stadiums In The World

Fans Have Voted For The Top 25 Football Stadiums In The World

The Cairo international stadium is the best football ground in the world according an online poll.

Spanish outlet MARCA have been encouraging fans to vote for what they deem to be the greatest arena for football games.


Readers have been able to upvote their favourite stadium and while the poll is still ongoing, it's already throwing up some very surprising results in the top 25.

For starters, at the time of writing, the Cairo international stadium is leading comfortably with over 100,000 votes. The 75,000 capacity stadium is home to Egyptian outfit Al Ahly and hosted last year's Africa Cup of Nations.

Spanish stadiums Santiago Bernabeu, Nou Camp and Athletic Bilbao's San Mames, which replaced the old version of the same ground, follow behind in second, third and fourth.


The Wanda Metropolitano, which is home to Atletico Madrid and hosted last year's Champions League final, sits in sixth spot.

Anfield is the highest-ranked English stadium in eight place, a place above Signal Iduna Park - another ground known for its bubbling atmosphere on European night.

Wembley and Old Trafford are just outside the top in 12th and 13th respectively, with the San Siro deemed to be the 16th best stadium in the world.
