The Camp Nou, second wonder of the sporting world


The Camp Nou has been named the second wonder of the sporting world following a survey carried out by ‘Barclays Spaces for Sport', a program set up in 2005 that researched the best sporting facilities outside of the United Kingdom.

The survey was held among British fans to name the ‘Seven Sporting Wonders of the World', and the FCB stadium has been named the second best sports venue on Earth, only beaten by Monaco’s Formula One Grand Prix circuit.

15% of votes for Barça ground

Next came Beijing’s Olympic Stadium (14%), the Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid (5%), the San Siro in Milan (4%), the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro (4%) and the Melbourne Cricket Ground (4%).

China at the top

The same survey asked which country will dominate elite sports over the coming decade, and the British reckon that that nation will be China (43%), optimistically followed by their own United Kingdom (17%) with third place going to the United States (15%).
