In this list I will reveal what I believe are the top five stadiums in England.
I will take into account capacity, facilities and appearance of the stadium.
5. Stadium of Light - Sunderland
The Stadium of Light is the home of Sunderland Football Club in the Premier League. It was built in 2000 and was rated as one of the best grounds in England by UEFA. The ground has a capacity of 49,000. The Stadium of Light was given it's name due to the historical mining activities that took place there.
4. St. James' Park - Newcastle Utd
St. James' Park is located in Upon Tyne, Newcastle, and sits in the city centre of it's home club, Newcastle. Newcastle have had good and bad season's in recent years, but their Stadium has always been among the best in England. It has a capacity of 52,000 but there have been plans to extend the Ground to 60,000 in the future. Matches were played there in the 2012 London Olympics and St. James' Park will be a stadium in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
