The best TripAdvisor review about every Premier League stadium

Quick Reads

Most people visit football stadiums to support their team and don’t give a great deal of thought to their surroundings. But there are also plenty that see the football as a day out – and not everybody enjoys the experience.

It’s not cheap to watch a Premier League game live from the stadium. Hardcore supporters feel they have no choice but to attend, of course, but imagine paying £40 to watch two teams you have no emotional attachment to. A scrappy 1-0, dodgy pint of lager and burning hot pie might leave you feeling rather underwhelmed.

With that in mind, we headed to TripAdvisor to find some of the best, funniest and plain bizarre reviews of Premier League stadiums. At least one of these (Manchester City) is almost certainly a spoof…but just imagine if it isn’t…

Emirates Stadium

“Someone vomited right next to my feet and it took 20 minutes for a clear to arrive on the scene. I’m an avid Arsenal fan, but I’ll be watching on TV next time.”


Dean Court

“The smallest Premiership stadium and a bit of a trek to get to from the centre of Bournemouth, which seems worth it if your team wins. If they don’t, on the plus side you do get to spend some time by the seaside, which is nice.”


AMEX Stadium

“It was FA cup third round weekend, and the spirit of the cup was alive and kicking. The atmosphere was fervent yet considerate – none of this chanting and singing nonsense you get at other grounds. Here people (approx 390) sat quietly, clapping intermittently and occasionally posturing like seagulls. I even saw a leprechaun in the crowd, but alas no pot of gold. Only gold lining Chris Hughton’s pocket.

“The game itself was of high quality – much akin to my previous experiences of top level football in Tamil Nadu (Chennai Blasters).

“MK Dons away support was awful – chanting ‘you’re not very good’. This was ridiculous as they were losing and in the league below. Do your research you buffoons.”


Turf Moor

Nobody has actually reviewed Turf Moor, which is sad.

Stamford Bridge

“I sat where Jose Mourinho harasses the club Dr/Match Referee from it had a pungent smell of something very Bitter.”


Selhurst Park

“Level of football may vary, but the food is at an all time high”

Darren G

Goodison Park

“I like the scouse pies but don’t really know what is in them”


John Smith’s Stadium

“stadium is a perfect size not too big, but smells of BO”


King Power

“The Mecca of football stadiums. Where you can be 3-0 up and still bite your nails through nervousness.”

Michael R


“I didn’t actually get to go in and see the stadium from the inside as am not a great football fan and didn’t want to waste money on it, but it is really impressive from the outside”


Etihad Stadium

“The seats were not comfy at all. They were stupid plastic things that flip up when you are not sat in them. What a bloody stupid idea!

I lost 3 pints, some chips and a battered sausage because of this insane feature! Every time I stood up my things went flying and the people behind me were covered in chips and beer that I paid for!!! ‘Bloody hell’ I thought, ‘I will have to remember not to put my chips on my chair before I stand up’. The problem was I was really drunk and my chairs at home don’t pop up like an angry diglett when I stand up!

Also these chairs had no legs!!! Insane!

Not impressed.

Worst chairs ever!”

Sian A

Old Trafford

“I went to the gift shop so I could buy my friend a birthday gift for his 21 birthday and I got him a mug”


St James’ Park

“The Carling does not taste like Carling should”


St Mary’s

“The first time in my life I got a cheese burger without any cheese”

Kamila M

Britannia Stadium

“there was a strange aroma of pies and oatcakes lingering around the place, the food must be good though as everyone there was at least six foot five”


Liberty Stadium

“once again pork on menu. Can’t chefs cook anything else. Disappointed”


Vicarage Road

“Watford FC has recently adopted this print-your-ticket-self scheme that is bound to spread to other clubs and make life a misery for football ticket collectors. After some debate on where I could get a real ticket printed, I managed to get one for this game. I’m sure it won’t be so easy next time. ”


The Hawthorns

“I left home early for the match – the plan being that we would eat when we got to West Brom; Ha – 90 mins of misery – not the match – a 1-0 Saints win was excellent – but the time between joining the queue for J1 slip road and parking opposite the ground (about half a mile). Utter chaos – with the traffic on the slip road roundabout utterly gridlocked.”

Alan Partridge skeckersley

Olympic Stadium

“When the floodlights were switched on, it gave me an instant migrane.”


And a special mention for this…

Elland Road

“Is a large venue but not a ‘warm’ atmosphere in my experience. It is hard to say much else, but my friends memorial was good when held there.”
