13. Avanhard Stadium, Pripyat, Ukraine
Not many sporting arenas have been abandoned in such dramatic circumstances as Avanhard Stadium in Pripyat, Ukraine. Indeed, the former home of now defunct soccer club FC Stroitel Pripyat has now been almost completely reclaimed by nature. It was abandoned April 1986 following the infamous explosion at the nearby Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The soccer club subsequently moved to a new purpose-built replacement city called Slavutych, but kicked its last ball in 1988.
