La Liga is a spectacular football league. It has produced some of the greatest players and clubs in the history of the sport. However, what La Liga is really known for are its passionate fans.
Spain, a country of magnificent beauty and culture, brought the world the sport of bullfighting. The intensity and tradition of “Corrida de Torros” can also be seen on the football pitch and both are worth watching next time you are in Spain
Should you attend a La Liga match in Spain, be sure to go to one of these stadiums and experience the incredible atmosphere!
Camp Nou – FC Barcelona
Camp Nou is about as iconic as the Colosseum in Rome. Okay, that may be a bit of a stretch but FC Barcelona’s home is certainly one of the greatest modern day stadiums in all of sport. “Mes Que Un Club” (More than a Club) says it all doesn’t it?
Estadio Santiago Bernabeu – Real Madrid
The Bernabeu has seen some of the greatest football matches ever played in the history of the sport. Real Madrid has won the most Champions League titles in the history of football. They are the official GOAT. Their stadium has a phenomenal atmosphere which is created by the steep design of the stands overlooking the perfect pitch below. It’s due to undergo an amazing renovation, which will be unveiled in 2023.
Estadio de Mestalla – Valencia CF
Mestalla stadium should really be at the top of your list during your next trip to Spain. Valencia CF is very similar to clubs like Liverpool or Dortmund. They give you this “we are an underdog” vibe even though all these clubs have experience some great success in the past. This creates an amazing experience when attending a game at Mestalla.
Wanda Metropolitano – Atletico Madrid
Renovated in 2017, Wanda Metropolitano is home to Atletico Madrid. Soon, both Wanda and the Bernabeu will be two of the most modern stadiums in all of Europe. Old stadiums give spectators a feeling of nostalgia and really can add to the experience when attending a match. However, modern stadiums are not all bad! They come equipped with the latest technology, cleanest bathrooms and guaranteed good views.
Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan – Sevilla FC
Last but not least is the home of Sevilla FC at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. You will experience an intimate atmosphere in a stadium that really doesn’t have a bad seat. Not only is the stadium wonderful but Sevilla is an absolutely spectacular city. Grab some Sangria for a pre game “tailgate” and head to the game! Cheers! Salud!
