The Most Beautiful Sports Stadiums in the World

Ottmar Hitzfeld GsponArena (Gspon, Switzerland)

A sporting venue situated literally in the Swiss Alps? Sign us up. In terms of being picturesque, we can’t really knock this location even the slightest. Sure, there are no frills when it comes to the actual soccer field itself. However, this is a backdrop surely anyone could get used to.

This stadium is over 6,500 feet above sea level — making it the highest stadium in all of Europe. Even more spectacular, a professional team doesn’t even play here. Instead, semi-pro team FC Gspon calls this beauty home. The stadium itself is named after Ottmar Hitzfeld — a former German player/coach who was the manager of Switzerland’s National Team for over six years.
