    Top 10 football stadiums in Europe to visit

    #ytrPageHead h1 {color:black;} [​IMG]
    Europe, with the premier club tournament in the world in the form of the Champion's League, naturally contains some of the biggest, best and richest football clubs around. And if you are on your travels there's nothing better than experiencing a game first hand, or at least taking a stadium tour at one of the finest football grounds Europe has to offer. Here's our pick of 10 of the best stadiums to take in on your European travels:
    [​IMG]
    Nou Camp, Barcelona, Spain
    Simply the biggest football stadium in Europe, with a capacity of 98,772. Home to FC Barcelona, the Nou Camp’s atmosphere is almost unrivalled, especially when playing rivals Real Madrid, or during crucial Champions League matches. And occasionally the team may even get the white handkerchief treatment should they be having a stinker. Take the Nou Camp Tour and discover the changing room area, run out onto the pitch through the tunnel, sit in the Presidential Box, check out the press room, and delve into Barca’s history at the club’s museum - the most visited museum in the city, regularly receiving 1.1 million visitors a year. Appropriately, the tour lasts 90 minutes and is a must-do.

    Old Trafford, Manchester, England
    Let’s just say, tickets to Old Trafford are as rare as a Gary Neville goal so you need to plan months in advance if you are looking to take in a game or have no desire to fill the pockets of a ticket tout. With a capacity of 76,212, the home of Manchester United is the second biggest football stadium in England (behind Wembley). Your next best option is the stadium tour (around 200,000 people take it each year). On a tour, you’ll gain access to the players’ tunnel, the dugout that Sir Alex has warmed his backside in for in excess of 20 years, the dressing room, and the extensive club museum containing all the history and success of the Red Devils.

    Westfalenstadion (Signal Iduna Park), Dortmund, Germany
    The 80,552-capacity home of BV Borussia Dortmund is considered by many to be the loudest stadium in Europe, and that’s no surprise given its 24,000-plus standing terrace, the Südtribüne, which is the largest still-existing standing area in European football. While rules for internationals reduce ground capacity to 65,718 (due to standing areas not being allowed), it is still nonetheless an outstanding stadium. Should you be unable to immerse yourself in the great atmosphere the ground has to offer due to its brilliant fans and superb acoustics (which have led to it being dubbed the "The Opera House of German Football"), why not take the tour instead? The tour showcases the standing terraces, the dugout, and the BVB-Museum displays old posters, photos, and trophies. The free guided tours are given by the BVB fan liaison officers and occasionally by former players.

    Wembley Stadium, London, England
    The second largest stadium in Europe with a capacity of 90,000, Wembley is the perfect venue for the showpiece occasions in the English football calendar. With tickets for the major cup finals at a premium, your best chance of taking in a game would be for a friendly international for the national team or one of the lower league play-offs. Wembley will host the 2011 Champion’s League final. A Wembley Stadium tour provides an opportunity to go behind the scenes, into the changing rooms, and through the players’ tunnel onto the hallowed turf. You can take up the chance to lift the cup in front of the Royal Box, and check out the dugouts, before entering the press conference room and post-match interview area. And don’t forget to check out the famed sliding roof that makes Wembley the biggest covered European football stadium.

    Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid, Spain
    The home of Real Madrid since 1947 is considered one of the most intimidating stadia for opposing teams, and never more so than when El Clasico takes place against bitter rivals Barcelona. With an 80,354 capacity, it is clearly one of the loudest stadia in Europe, and one that the opposition barely relishes facing. The stadium plays host to the 2010 Champions League final. If unable to take in a game, you won’t be disappointed by the stadium tour which starts in one of the eight panoramic lifts, giving visitors a great overview of the scale of the stadium and the club. Visitors can take a walk around the pitch, visit the Presidential Balcony usually reserved for Board Members, explore the players’ tunnel and away dressing room, press room, and the trophy room of one of the most decorated clubs in Europe.

    San Siro (Stadio Giuseppe Meazza), Milan, Italy
    Home to both Inter Milan and AC Milan, the San Siro’s 80,074 capacity makes it one of the noisiest and impressive of stadia. The noise levels have led it to be aptly nicknamed the "Scala" of football, after the famous Opera House. Those who end up sitting in the highest seats in the ground are also able to see great views of the city. If you are unable to bag tickets for a match (ideally the Milan derby), take the stadium guided tours. They take you around the ground and into the players' locker rooms, the V.I.P. lounge, and also the museum which tells the histories of both clubs with memorabilia including cups, medals and shirts from past greats.

    Stadio Olimpico, Rome, Italy
    The impressive Stadio Olimpico, as its name suggests, was host to the 1960 Olympic Games, but now doubles as the home for bitter rivals SS Lazio and AS Roma. Its capacity of 82,000 makes it a truly intimidating arena for opposition sides and its circular shape makes it as near to a modern-day Colosseum as you can get. Your best option is to get tickets well in advance for a Roma or Lazio game, or even the national side who also play there, unless you don’t mind being stung by the touts. For a true fan experience, get tickets in the Curva Nord section which holds the Lazio hardcore, or the Curva Sud which is for Roma supporters. The Champions League Final was played in the stadium in 2008.

    Allianz Arena, Bayern Munich & 1860 Munich
    The Allianz Arena is perhaps the most individual stadium in Europe, resembling something more like an alien spacecraft than a football ground. The home of both Bayern Munich and 1860 Munich, the 69,000-capacity stadium has a façade which can be lit into three different colours depending on who is at home – red for Bayern, blue for 1860 and White for the German National Team. It will host the 2012 Champions League final. A tour of the stadium can be taken. This normally lasts 75 minutes and starts with a film telling the story of the Allianz Arena to date. The guided tour takes in the upper tier of the stadium, the sponsors’ lounge, the stadium interior, the press club, the dressing rooms, the players’ tunnel, and the outside of the stadium. English language tours take place daily at 1pm.

    Anfield, Liverpool, England
    The home of Liverpool FC is not one of the largest, yet still manages to be one of the liveliest and most daunting for visiting teams. With capacity at just over 45,000, it’s no surprise the club have plans to move to a bigger and better home, so really it is prime time to visit and hear the famed Kop in full voice before it’s too late. On non-match days, you can enjoy a tour of Anfield. Take your place on the Kop, sit in the dugout, take a look round the players’ dressing rooms, and walk down the players’ tunnel and touch the famous “This is Anfield" sign before emerging onto the pitch. There’s also the extensive club museum containing all manner of memorabilia, including worn match shirts and Liverpool’s five European trophies.

    Celtic Park, Glasgow, Scotland
    The home of Celtic since 1892, Celtic Park has a reputation as one of the noisiest stadiums in Europe, especially when there’s an Old Firm clash with Rangers, or Champions League matches are taking place. A capacity of 62,832 makes it the largest football stadium in Scotland. A Celtic Visitor Centre is situated at Celtic Park to guide visitors through the club’s history and heritage. You can take a guided tour of the stadium and check out the exhibitions and auditorium which bring the club’s story to life. Guided tours are available throughout the day on non-match days, and also on Saturday match days up to 11am.

    Kiwanja bora ni Sansiro Meazza.
    Kiwanja hiki ni kuwa kimechezewa na mastaa tofauti wa soka.

    Lakini kama hiyo haitoshi Sansiro ni uwanja ambao kwa sasa unatumika na The Saint Ronaldinho kutupa rasha rashi
