    Worst stadium you have ever been to?

    For me it is Gold Coast stadium, at Carrara, where they play the AFL matches up here, it is so bogan in every aspect of it. I mean the Gold Coast is going to get a team anyway, so build a new stadium, or just bomb the **** out of it.

    Don't know about worst, but Waverley Park had benches instead of individual seats which was fairly annoying.

    Boothferry Park (Hull's old ground) was an armpit. Decaying, exposed to the elements, ploughed field were the pitch should be...

    KC Stadium hockeypitch in Hull (again).

    The actual pitch wasn't so bad, more like the KM squared carpark that was literally made up of gravel, mud and soil that was home to gypsies, tramps and other such cretins that you wouldn't wish to be near. Just a vast expanse that had zero shelter from the elements. The whole place is surrounded by council estates and the area leading up to it is horrible again. Fantastic pitch though.

    In terms of facilities, Avondale Racecourse (if that counts as a stadium) is an absolute disgrace.

    For location and access, Eden Park. A real bitch to get to and from. It's a horrible crush getting the train back from an ODI with a crowd of around 20,000...good luck with the Rugby World Cup final.

    Spotland and Gigg Lane are grim and Bloomfield Road looks a forlorn site without the old south stand

    which is a shame because when the old stand was there, and had a roof on it, and they had some supporters, there was a superb atmosphere there .............. and there needed to be because it was so ****ing cold

    Mate of mine got kicked out before kick-off at Blackpool once for being too drunk...he stood on the wall ten feet behind the goal watching the game, and occasionally we could hear a yelp of "whiiiiiiiite army"

    3. Salisbury City - Raymond McEnhill Stadium



    2. Histon - Glassworld Stadium



    1. Ebbsfleet United - Stonebridge Road



    All photos of the away ends I've stood in to watch City fail to rise above the squalour around them.

    Pretty sure Salisbury's and Histon's grounds would probably be some of the worst uses of the word 'stadium' in history.
