How Many Stadiums Have You Been To?

Recommended Posts

How many stadiums have you been to?

I've not been to many at all which is a shame but I intend to change that over the coming months/years!

94.

Bristol City’s Ashton Gate is going to be number 95 next month. I probably won’t do any new new grounds after that this season, I don’t think.

I make it 88, everything from Wembley to Falmouth Town in Cornwall. Best are the old ones laden with character, places like Roots Hall (Southend) or York Street (Boston); the worst are the pre-packed identical dross like the Madejski or the Reebok. Should hopefully make it well over 100 by the end of the season.

Made myself a table of the 92 when I was at a loose end last year. Will dig it out and get it stuck in here. At the point now where I've got to try and get it done.

That's hard to tell.

Architecturally probably the Berlin Olympic Stadium, but of course the tartan track is pretty bad for the atmosphere.

From the modern stadiums I like that in St. Pauli pretty much. It's really well built and still has a bit of St. Pauli character.

Apart from that I always liked the Ruhrstadion in Bochum.

and why is it Düsseldorf?

Trying to convince my friend to do a podcast with me next season where we chat to fans, play stupid games and obviously watch some games. I'm going to be doing it regardless of whether he joins or not but so excited to try and do as many of the 92 next season as I can!

Now made it to 111, hopefully with another couple before the end of the season. Had a quick gander and have 39 of the current 92, mostly from the top two leagues.

Mrs might be off to The Wirral for a work thing in November on a Saturday and asked if I wanted to go. Jumped at the chance. Not done Tranmere before. Looked, they’ve got a yet to be drawn FA Cup game. Liverpool, not been there either? Home to City that weekend, no chance of a reasonably priced ticket for that. Best I can find so far that is definitely on the Saturday is Lower Breck or Cammell Laird v Maine Road or Oswestry Town in something called the Macron Cup.

Wrong side of the Mersey but you also have Marine (Crosby) at home that weekend in the league, and potentially Litherland in the same cup if they get through.

57/91, at the minute. That’s before a couple of clubs go up/down and another couple move. 

Been to 96 grounds overall, so four off three figures. I should really aim to wipe three off pretty quickly when normal life resumes and do somewhere big for 100.

178 I make it; including 50 of the '92'. The last was Derby 3-0 Rovers on Sunday 8 March. The next is...
