We're in football season and it's worth knowing some of the iconic football stadiums around the world. Football stadiums are scattered all over the world because football business is now booming. Almost every popular club has a stadium in which they play their home matches and also host important activities in the club. Among all the teams in Europe especially the top ones like the Barcelonas, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea etc have their own Stadiums of which they can be easily identify with.

However, like the saying in Akan goes, panyin de panyin, some have iconic stadiums than others. Iconic stadiums are huge and have high sitting capacity than the others. They have rich history compared to the rest.

Note that it is not only clubs that have iconic stadiums but also nations also do have. Let's take a journey through some of the iconic stadiums we have in the world.

2. Westfalenstadion

Jurgen Klopp once said that, to exit from the dark tunnel in Westfalenstadion and come out into the stadium is to be reborn. He described the atmosphere in Westfalenstadion as extraordinary.
