Most intimidating stadiums
By Jemima Lopez Sports are a huge part of our daily lives.
The incredible popularity of sports has made them big business, with the most elite teams and the most successful franchises building incredible stadiums to hold the millions of adoring fans who loyally follow their favorite teams.
Be it a baseball diamond, a soccer pitch, a hockey rink or a basketball court, every sport has its share of venues that create a formidable advantage for the home team.
Whether it’s Estadio Azteca, Fenway Park, Lambeau Field or Cameron Indoor Stadium, some stadiums present a downright scary environment for their visitors.
The stadium's full name is actually Estadio Alberto J.
Armando, but is commonly referred to as La Bombonera, meaning the Chocolate Box, a reference to its shape - one totally flat stand along one side and then 3 other sheer sides, rising up almost vertically, giving the stadium fantastic acoustics.
These stadiums have become an essential part of major cities and whole continents throughout the world.
They are a source of local and national pride and feature some of the most innovative technology and entertainment advances that the world has ever seen.
"Take a walk on the wild side" sang Lou Reed, apparently about a journey around tough New York. Situated as it is in the colourful La Boca area of Buenos Aires, a Superclasico trip into this neighbourhood for the more upper-class followers of River Plate is precarious in itself. If there's a more intimidating place for away fans who watch football live or opposition players to have to play it, then we've yet to come across it.
