Book Description

8 May 2008
There has never been a time in the history of British football where our teams are playing so often in Europe. With the rise in stature of the Champions League, the UEFA Cup and the much maligned Intertoto Cup alongside the national team tournaments such as the European Championships and the World Cup qualifiers, more and more fans are taking the opportunity to pick up some bargain flights to follow their teams abroad. Added to this is the growing band of football fans who regularly take off for the weekend to see some of Europe's greats such as Real Madrid, AC Milan and Bayern Munich as well as some of the lesser known but just as enjoyable places such as Brondby in Copenhagen, FC Flora in Tallinn and Anderlecht in Brussels. One factor, though, has been missing from the perfect weekend itinerary and that is a comprehensive guide book aimed at the travelling football fan. Published to coincide with the Euro2008 competition being held in Austria and Switzerland, this guide includes 90 of Europe's best stadiums to visit, including the eight host venues being used in June 2008. Each chapter takes you through a history of the stadium and the club that plays there, how to get to the stadium and, more importantly, how to get a ticket. It also covers the nearest airport, travel advice and some of the best places to eat and drink. Every stadium is enhanced with a picture of the arena - the vast majority published for the first time. Compiled by Stuart Fuller, who has visited every single ground featured in the book to give a true fan's eye perspective, this book is an indispensable handbook to any fans who want to broaden their travelling horizons, or simply for the armchair fan who wants to know a bit more about football in Europe. The book covers watching football in over 25 different countries, including virtually all of the Champions League Group clubs.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fan's Guide: European Football Grounds 9 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book covers most (but not all) of European stadiums where UEFA matches are likely to be played. The book's jacket says "this fabulous guide to the most famous and impressive of all European stadia" the definition of "most famous" is open to interpretation and I therefore feel that the book should not be considered as comprehensive.
It does provides reasonable travel information however a link with the venue's city guide for places to stay/eat would prove useful.
The author explains how to arrive at the stadium by public transport and also how to obtain a ticket. The photographs give an indication of the stadium's design but no stadium seating plans etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Helpful Resource 30 Jun 2011
By David P. Craig - Published on
I am taking my son (a soccer fanatic) to Europe next year - we have been planning this trip for some time now, and one of the most helpful books we have been using is this one. It has great pictures, information, insights, facts, etc. I highly recommend it - especially for people like us who love soccer (football) and desire to visit some of the most famous and not so famous clubs in the world. Both my son and I highly recommend this book as an excellent resource with a plethora of useful information for your visits to your favorite teams stadiums, and - hopefully - games too!
