Camp Nou (second) greatest sporting venue

British tabloid The Daily Mail has put together a list of the 50 greatest sporting venues in the world.

Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium finishes second in the ranking, behind the old Wembley stadium that disappeared a few years ago.

The top ten:

1) The old Wembley Stadium, London
2) Nou Camp, Barcelona
3) Lord's (cricket)
4) All England Club, Wimbledon
5) Anfield, Liverpool
6) Augusta National (golf)
7) Millennium Stadium, Cardiff
8) Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid
9) St Andrews (golf)
10) Melbourne Cricket Ground

in an alternative list, the Camp Nou comes out on top before Madison Square Garden and the Bombonera stadium of Boca Juniors (read more here)

Well it was a 'British paper' that compiled the list. I think if you were to take a pole in Europe most fans would rate the Camp Nou at number 1. I am glad to see the Melbourne Criket Ground on the list :-) It is an amazing venue. Perfect to host a World Cup Final ;-)

No stadiums from France or Germany...

I would put Westfalenstadion somewhere on that list, it's awesome. Stade de France, San Siro, Veltins Arena and Allianz Arena are pretty good too.

The boring part with Camp Nou is that it's only the greatest sporting venue a couple of times each season. El Clasico, a couple of league fixtures and the knockout-stages in CL.

Westfalenstadion is full every game... And it have a capacity of 80 000.
