10 Best Football Stadiums In The World

These grounds truly make the hairs on your neck stand upright...

Every football fan gets that extra buzz on matchday. For home games, they wake up in the morning, put on their replica jerseys and head down to the iconic stadium that holds that special place in their heart.

But even more thrilling than the euphoria they get for home matches, is the adrenaline that rushes through the body on away days - and particularly on visits to the world's most iconic grounds.

Obviously a trip just down the road to the local rivals provides a thrill, but the long away days are the ones which really get the heart racing - they are what being a football fan is all about. Whether it is knowing that you are about to witness a masterclass of tiki-taka football from up in the gods at the Nou Camp, or that you will be mesmerised by the ever-changing colours on the outside of the Allianz Arena, or even if you are lucky enough to walk along Wembley way on cup final day (unfortunately some clubs have trodden this path far too irregularly) - all these away trips make football really worth watching.

So here are the 10 most-iconic football stadia in the world - the ones which all fans must endeavour to visit during their lifetime.
