Every now and then, we all have played in a football field where the altitude or the length, or even the landscape is bizarre. The weirdest football fields I ever played was half dirt and half grass. Literally. Although for me it was not a problem, because it was amateur football and we didn’t expect to play in a high level field. The problem is, that a few professional teams play in fields with poor conditions or in strange locations.

 

In this article we present the top 5 weirdest football fields.

The small village of Eidi has a peculiar football field next to the North Atlantic Ocean, were you can play with the sound of the waves next to you. It is the home of the national team of Faroe Islands, were they have played against big teams like Germany, Italy, England, among others. Interesting fact is that there’s a guy on the sea prepared to search the balls that go out of bounds.

The world’s largest football field, being 5% bigger than any other turf. Located in the middle of Singapore, it’s a multiuse stadium for the city and for ever event when needed. It’s made entirely of steel and is in the middle of the Marina Reservoir. The 2010 Summer Youth Olympics was the perfect stage to attest the extent of one of the weirdest football fields in the world.

It’s not clear if the architects of the Mmabatho Stadium were drunk or under the influence of any other substance, but they made one of the weirdest football fields in the world. Built in 1981 by a Russian construction company, the stands weren’t made for the comfort of the audience.

This Sports Park has many peculiarities; the first is that it’s located in one of the poorest neighborhoods of the country and it’s very insecure to get to the matches that are played there. Second is that it’s located near a highway, and everyone that drives through manage to watch a bit of the game. And third, are the big construction walls that encircle the football field. Only 3000 people manage to enter the stands.

Two normal stands, and at one end there’s a rock wall and on the other side the view of the city. Beautiful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Football fields aren’t made to be pretty, they are made to play beautiful football inside or them. So as long as there is football played in them, we don’t care if they are the top weirdest football fields in the world, we just want to enjoy some football.
