The Vélodrome, the best stadium in France20 nov 2015
The Vélodrome Stadium is the best stadium in France! We already knew it, but an English magazine, FourFourTwo, confirmed it in its ranking of the 100 best stadiums in the world.
A ranking established thanks to journalists all around the world and to votes of internet users, based on six criteria: history, atmosphere, capacity, architecture, the environment of the facilities and finally, the "wow factor", in other words, the attraction of the ground.
If the Vélodrome Stadium is placed first in France, it comes in at 14th position on a world level. First place was awarded to the mythical Bombonera Stadium, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where Bocca Junior play. Barcelona's Camp Nou and the new Wembley Stadium in London, where the French team played a few days ago, complete the podium.
In the top 100, apart from the Vélodrome Stadium (14th), only the Stade de France at Saint-Denis (16th( and Lille's Pierre-Mauroy Stadium (80th) represent France.
