No doubt, football is one of famous and popular match in the world.

Before, I already share an article about 12 Stadium for World Cup 2014 in Brazil (recomended : 12 Football Stadium for World Cup 2014 - Brazil). Right now I would like to share another information about 10 Awesome and Spectaculer Football Stadium according to Unique Daily Tips:

10. De Meer Stadion (Ajax - Amsterdam )

Known as the Amsterdam Arena, the Netherlands national football stadium is a fan favourite across the world. It's officially opened in 1996 with capacity: 53,052 seats. Home to one of Europe's elite clubs, De Meer Stadion has had some of the world's greatest footballers grace its turf. The likes of Johan Neeskens, Johnny Rep, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ronald Koeman and, of course, Johan Cruyff have all donned the famous red-and-white strip over the years. Though a relatively new stadium, the Amsterdam ArenA encapsulates all of the tradition, success and ingenuity that is so often associated with Holland's finest club. Tenants: Ajax, the Netherlands national football team.

9. Juventus Stadium (Turin, Italy)
Although it's by far the newest stadium on the list and has therefore not had the chance to secure a spot near the top, the Juventus Stadium still sits pretty high because of its incredible atmosphere and wonderful design. This stadium was opened in 2011 with capacity 41,254 seats. Though just over two years old, the stadium already has two Italian scudettos to its name thanks to Juventus' unbeaten 2011/12 season followed by another impressive league-winning campaign in 2012/13.

8. Anfield Stadium ( Liverpool - England)
Though not a huge stadium in terms of capacity 45,276 seats, the legendary atmosphere at Anfield known throughout the world makes the home of Liverpool one of the great stadiums.

Home to the Reds, who have won five European Cup titles, Anfield is always a treat for members of any visiting team, though it continues to instil fear into any opposition. From the famous “This Is Anfield” sign hanging in the tunnel, to the passionate home fans singing "You'll Never Walk Alone," Anfield will forever be a favourite amongst players and fans alike. Opened in 1884, Anfield has become one of England’s most iconic football stadiums. The home of Liverpool FC, Anfield has become synonymous for its electric atmosphere, particularly on European nights.

7. San Siro (AC Milan - Italy)
Located in Milan, Italy, the San Siro is home to AC Milan as well as Inter Milan. With a capacity of 80,000 seats. The stadium was designed to give maximum visibility to each of its spectators. Although an impressive stadium in its own right, the prestige of the San Siro comes from the events that take place there. Holding the Champions League Final in 2002, and being the home of two of the world’s largest and most successful clubs, the San Siro is a stadium in which every footballer longs to one day walk out of the tunnel. It just lacks the certain magic of the Camp Nou or Old Trafford, otherwise it would be much higher on this list. Aptly nicknamed the "Scala" of football, Milan's San Siro Stadium is all about soccer and nothing else. Home to both Inter and AC Milan, this is one of the few venues in Italy that was built with a sole sport in mind: the two viewing tiers evolve into three behind both goals, and there is no athletic track surrounding the pitch.

6. Maracana, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Brazilians love football for sure. Given this level of fanaticism, it should come as no surprise that Brazil boasts the world's second largest stadium in Maracana, with an official capacity of approximately 125,000 seats. Maracana was built for the 1950 tournament, the first and last time that Brazil has hosted the World Cup. This hands-off approach to stadium maintenance left Maracana imbued with historical significance and a mecca for architecture and soccer enthusiasts alike. The building is currently undergoing $40 million worth of renovations, to be completed in the fall of 2002.

5. Old Trafford (Manchester, England )

Old Trafford's tenants split opinion. You either love them or you hate them. But irrespective of your slant, there's no hiding away from the fact that “The Theatre of Dreams” is a truly magnificent venue. Opened in 1910, the home of the Red Devils now seats over 75,000 fans, after its 2006 renovation and is England's largest club stadium. Manchester United look set to embark on a new era. One thing's for sure, however: Fans from around the world will continue flocking to the cosmopolitan Old Trafford to take in the magic of the stadium and to watch one of football's most successful clubs.

4. Bernabeu (Real Madrid - Spain)

Bernabeu Stadium opened in 1947 with a capacity of over 85,000 spectators, Real Madrid’s ground is certainly highly impressive. As one of Europe’s most successful clubs, winning 9 Champions League titles, Real Madrid have earned the right to play in a beautiful stadium such as the Bernabeu. It has been the stomping ground of many of the world’s greatest players over the years and is currently where Christiano Ronaldo calls home. Its prestige is somewhat overshadowed by the Nou Camp in Barcelona, however the impressiveness of the Bernabeu cannot be underestimated. Originally opened in 1947, the Santiago Bernabeu has since been renovated twice in 1982 and 2001 in order to match the ambitions of the Galacticos. The stadium has been home to many of the world's greatest players over the years.

3. Camp Nou Stadium (Barcelona - Spain)

The Camp Nou is Spain’s largest football stadium and also the home of arguably Europe’s greatest football team, Barcelona. It has been Barcelona’s home ground ever since 1957 and seats over 99,000 fans. The Camp Nou is Europe's largest football stadium and is home to one of the great football teams. Barcelona's motto “mes que un club” (more than a club) is iconic throughout the footballing world, and their stadium is a huge part of everything Barcelona stands for. It truly is a special club so much so that they even have a detailed history of their stadium on the club's website. The capacity of the Camp Nou once eclipsed 120,000 for the 1982 World Cup finals, but due to changes in laws regarding standing in stadiums, it has now been reduced.

2. The Allianz Arena (Bayern Munich - Germany)

The stunningly beautiful Allianz Arena has been the home of European Champions Bayern Munich, as well as TSV 1860 Munchen since 2005 after they moved there from the Munich Olympic Stadium. Seating just over 70,000 fans, it may only be the third largest stadium in Germany, but nevertheless its magic is not lost. When it is lit up at night it looks simply stunning, with no better evidence for this than when it played host to the Champions League Final in 2012.

1. Emirates Stadium (Arsenal - England)
Home to one of the world’s most famous and valuable soccer clubs Arsenal F.C. Emirates stadium was completed in 2006 at a final cost of £390 million. Converted and adjusted for inflation, that’s about $750 million today. This place is somewhat of a rarity in the English Premier League in that it is brand spanking new. Most of the other top clubs have modern facilities, but they came about as the result of continual “renovations” (like Man U’s Old Trafford) rather than the construction of an entirely new structure.

From my point of view, all those Football Stadiums were absolutely awesome. The reason why I put Emirates Stadium in number one is because Arsenal is my favorite team in Premier League. So, please no hurt feeling about it. Thanks for reading.
