It's no secret, working in sports broadcasting especially when you're out on the field or traveling, all you'll get to see of a country is pretty much: airport - hotel - stadium - repeat.
Not that I'm complaining.
So I decided to make a list of stadiums/arenas that I've been lucky enough to visit in case I get diagnosed with Alzheimer's by the age of 68. I initially wanted to write 50, but having the kind of luck that I do (of self-jinxing) I decided to extend my sanity a couple of years.
Anyway, the stadiums listed below are the ones I've watched a game in or done a stadium tour of.
I'm not including the ones the ones I've seen from outside (the likes of Yankee Stadium and Goodison Park) or any local stadiums in Malaysia, like Bukit Jalil, because those are of course, a given.
- Anfield, Liverpool
- Stamford Bridge, Chelsea
- Loftus Road, QPR
- Wembley Stadium
- International Stadium, Yokohama
- Seattle Key Arena, Seattle
- Parc de Princes, PSG
- Mestalla Stadium, Valencia
- San Siro, Milan
- Arena Corinthians, Sao Paulo
- Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha, Brasilia
- Arena Castelao, Fortaleza
- Arena Fonte Nova, Salvador
- Arena Pernambuco, Recife
- Stadium Jalan Besar, Singapore
- Singapore Indoor Stadium
16 stadiums and counting, which will be next?
