Are you passionate about soccer?
Traveling the world and visiting cities with vibrant soccer cultures is a great way to discover the sport.
Here are some must-visit cities for lovers of the beautiful game.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Argentina is a soccer-crazed country, and Buenos Aires is at the heart of the madness. Home to two of the Americas’ most famous clubs, River Plate and Boca Juniors, a derby between these two rivals is an unforgettable experience to watch in person.
London is on this list due to the sheer number of clubs in the city as well as the high-profile standing of its clubs. Tottenham and Arsenal have the fiercest rivalry in town and are its best known teams. However, it also has clubs like Chelsea, West Ham, QPR, and Fulham.
Although its teams haven’t been as good as they were earlier in this millennium, Milan’s soccer culture is a must-see. Inter Milan and AC Milan, two Italian powerhouses, both share a stadium. The San Siro, seating 80,000 fans, is a place where any soccer fan must see at least one game.
Mexico City, Mexico
Finally, Mexico City makes its way onto the list as the soccer hotbed in one of the world’s most passionate soccer countries. The Estadio Azteca, with a capacity of 105,000, is Mexico’s national team stadium and also hosts Club América’s home matches. You can also find clubs like Cruz Azul and UNAM Pumas here.
