Football Discussion - Worst Stadium You've Ever Been To?

For me, the grimiest stadium I remember visiting was Selhurst Park years ago for a friendly.

In a traditionally grey, wet and bleak summer's day in England, I ventured to go and see Crystal Palace (who I remembered had Andrew Johnson at the time - class player) play who-knows-who in a pre-season fixture. The game was average, and I believe Crystal Palace ended up drawing or winning the game.

Football aside, I hadn't realised the state of some Premier League grounds at the time. Crappy seats, pitch, facilities, area of the stadium. The lot. The poor weather certainly didn't help.

As a young kid, and did not envisage how fat, ugly and thick some fans could be. Match of the Day never had the cameraman sit next to some stereotype bloke who did nothing but swear, munch his pork pie and not wash his hands after his halftime piss. But I sat next to this type of man and he was relentless. He couldn't pronounce most of the opposing team player's names, kept moaning about the referee out loud and to his friends nearby, and was generally just a fool.

I haven't been back to Selhurst Park since. I'm sure the ground isn't as bad today as I remember it, but this has stayed with me.

The worst stadium I have been in Europe was Luton Town.

The walk from Luton train station was not pleasant as not only are you escorted, but you they send you through some rough neighbourhoods with the possibility of being thrown bottles at by some of the local residents.

I would not recommend it!

Can't be worse than Craven Cottage surely?

Barnet was a pleasant surprise actually. Fine, it's a small stadium, but not bad at all considering that.
