As it states in the title really..

This can also be old stadia which are no longer in use/existence anymore!...

Personal favourites for me over the years have included Highbury, Villa Park & Craven Cottage..

Least favourites are Moss Rose, Priestfield & Glanford Park.

Special mention goes to EverBank Field (Jacksonville) I went there a couple of years ago for a Jaguars home game against the Baltimore Ravens. It was quite an experience, made some good friends tailgating.. those Yanks do make game day pretty spectacular!

Favourite - Griffin Park. Always liked Vale Park a lot for no apparent reason. Like the old school grounds in general.

Least - Every ground built or undergone major refurbishment since the early 90ís

Favourite - always enjoyed Ashton Gate pre refurb, we always generated good noise. Craven Cottage and Loftus Road too.

Least favourite - Wembley - Souless and winless.

Least favourite. Anything tucked away in a retail park.
Special mention here for the Kassam, that place in Bletchley and worst of all, Scunthorpe.
Not keen on the Memorial Stadium or Boundary Park.

Favourite, as in a good day out would be QPR and Leyton Orient.
Oop north would be Sheffield United.
Former ground would be Upton Park.

Non football. The Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, a great place to while away an hour or two.

Most first class cricket grounds these days are little more than glorified corporate hospitality venues.
The Oval in the "blackwash" era was a great place to visit.
Part terrace that would be packed with West Indians and ghetto blasters blaring between overs.

The very best though and original field of dreams is of course our very own County Ground.

Very few places compare with the fun of Loftus Rd.

The new Wembley, aside from our form, is horrible to watch anything in simply because you get distracted looking around the damned place.  I hope to visit the Mercedez Benz stadium in Atlanta later this year, which has good reviews, hopefully proving a big impressive stadium need not be soulless.

Villa Park is ok for a part old part new ground.

Elm Park at Reading, the Manor at the Pox and Eastville at Bristol have to be the worst along with the Den.

As for the best, there are many but a lot depends on how we performed there in the past as having good memories. I quite like Fratton Park and Hillsborough though.

Went to watch Dortmund last season, have to say it was very impressive.

The Dallas Cowboys new stadium in Arlington is another that is very impressive.

As for football stadiums in England, most of them pre Taylor report were better for atmosphere if not better for comfort. I always liked Hillsborough, Villa Park and Upton Park.

There are plenty of shitholes around, but hate the soulless out of town grounds like Colchester
