There are a number of great soccer stadiums in Europe. Clubs such as Utd, Madrid and Barcelona have some of the finest stadiums. Here are a few of the great European soccer stadiums.

The New Wembley

The old Wembley is no more, and in its place has emerged the new Wembley. Wembley is the established home ground for the England team, so England games are played at the new Wembley. In addition to this, Wembley hosts the FA Cup finals and other sporting events such as Rugby. Wembley also hosts music and concert events. The new stadium is closely associated with the old one, so the history of the stadiums are jointly shared with the Wembley museum covering the great games played at the old and new stadium such as the great England games and FA Cup finals. So Wembley is a great European soccer stadium.

The Bernabeu

The Bernabeu is the stadium of Real Madrid. As such, many of the great Real Madrid teams have played and won at the Bernabeu. The Bernabeu is approximately 80,000 seats and has hosted a number of European Cup finals dating back to the '50s. In more recent times the stadium has hosted the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Inter Milan. Aside from club soccer, the stadium also hosts Spanish national team games. In addition to this, the Bernabeu stadium has played host to World Cup games such as the 1982 World Cup final. Of all the European stadiums, this is one that few teams win at.

Old Trafford

Old Trafford is the home of Man Utd. This is a great venue for soccer, and is the largest Premiership ground. Man Utd have won many trophies at this great stadium, including the Premiership title a number of times. Old Trafford has also hosted England games when the England teams were not playing at Wembley. It is also one of the few grounds that has hosted the FA Cup final before they were played at Wembley.

The Nou Camp

The Nou Camp is Europe's biggest, and is the home to Barcelona soccer club. Barcelona soccer club have one of Europe's best teams, so great players play at the Nou Camp. The stadium has also hosted a few Champions League finals as well as music concerts. Little known is that the stadium is also host to the Catalan national team; however, they do not play in either the World Cup or European Championships.

These are four of the great European stadiums. The New Wembley, Old Trafford, the Nou Camp, and the Bernabeu are four great stadiums where some of Europe's best teams play at both club and national level.
