Wonky goal line in Romania

Overview

Football Tripper is trying to group together the most unique stadiums in football. The criteria is kind of loose but generally revolves around grounds which have a weird, quirky or special feature. Send in your suggestions and we'll update this page:

This article will be an ongoing project, dedicated to grouping together the weirdest, quirky and most unique stadiums in football today. To kick things off I’ve listed 9 classic stadiums which routinely appear in such lists. Part 2 will come in due course.

The Float at Marina Bay

Capacity: 30,000

Location: Marina Bay, Singapore

Voždovac Stadium
