The loudest football stadiums in the world

Last update on Oct, 21, 2021

There is nothing more beautiful than watching a match in a stadium. The atmosphere of thousands of fans singing and jumping is indescribable. The passion for football is spread all over the world. From the Premier League to Serie A, the environment is something that anyone who calls themselves a football fan must experience at least once. Cheering is definitely an integral part of this world. So why not find out which are the noisiest stadiums in this fantastic sport?

Out of the charts

These five stadiums are certainly among the most difficult and noisiest in the world. They didn't make it to the final of 10, but they still deserve a mention.

15. Estadio Centenario; Peñarol, Uruguay

14. San Siro; AC Milan & Inter, Italy

10. Anfield; Liverpool, England

Founded: 1884

Capacity: 45,276

Attendance record: 61,905 in 1952 (it wasn't a stadium for everyone).

Liverpool fans certainly know how to support their team and put some pressure on their rivals, especially from the Kop. Although expansion plans have been in place since 2002, Anfield is a communitarian asset, so there must be City Council approval to make it happen.

“You never walk alone” is one of the most popular anthems in world football.

Founded: 1937

Capacity: 51,117

Some traditional songs are Hand in Hand, which appears to be the club anthem, Feyenoord 'til I Die, and Just Can't Get Enough.

Founded: 1892

Capacity: 60,355

It has been redeveloped four times, the most significant between 2002 and 2003. Heja BVB, Allez Borussia Dortmund Allez and Ole, Here comes the BVB are a must in the stadium.

4. Red Star Stadium; Red Star Belgrade, Serbia

Founded: 1963

Capacity: 55,538

Record of attendance: 110,000 in 1975.

Otherwise known as Marakana, it is a strong and intimidating place. It is home to the Belgrade Red Star, the most successful club in Serbia.

It was redeveloped in 2008 (new grass). But its capacity has changed over the years. It held 55,000 supporters from 1963 to 1964. From the latter to 1993, it hosted 110,000 fans. Finally, in 1993 it was adapted to receive 55 538 people.
