Are you a sports fan that isn’t sure where to watch it? The UK is filled with brilliant stadiums that see the biggest stars from around the world come together to put on a superb show for the crowd.
To help you decide where to go and watch a sporting event, we’ve put together a list of the best stadiums up and down the UK. Check them out below.
If it’s football that you’re wanting to watch, then there’s no stadium more iconic than Anfield. Buying the Liverpool home kit from the stadium store and immersing yourself in a sea of red shirts singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ as the team kicks off is a feeling like no other. It’s also an easy ferry crossing from Belfast to Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp is also one of the best managers in the league and has got the likes of Mo Salah, Virgil Van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold playing world-class football in recent years, which has led to a Premier League title and winning the Champions League too. The stadium has been renovated ready for the 2023/24 season, which will see its capacity rise to around 61,000, so you should have a better chance of getting one of the sought-after tickets.
Cricket fever is here with the Ashes in full swing this summer and there’s no better place to catch a game than at the Headingley Stadium in Leeds. There have been some huge England victories here in the past including the 2019 win over the Australians.
You can catch one of the county cricket games here and cheer on the mighty Yorkshire or head to one of The Hundred matches to see the Northern Superchargers take on opponents from around the UK.
Rugby stadiums don’t get much better than this, so head to Twickenham in London to cheer on England. Tickets for these games are notoriously hard to get, however, so if you’re lucky enough to get one, then make sure you soak in the atmosphere as it may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you.
Wimbledon Centre Court
Wimbledon is one of the biggest and best tennis tournaments in the world and the centre court is where all the stars tend to play, so this is the place to be. Last year, more than 25 million people watched this tournament according to the BBC, which shows just how popular Wimbledon is around the world.
Plus, this tennis tournament attracts lots of famous people, so you may have a chance to bump into one while you’re there!
