There was a time when eastern European teams were big boys on the football stage. And one name sticks in the memory from my childhood - Red Star Belgrade.   Quite right too. They've won the European Cup  and their iconic...

I've been busy updating Serbian listings for 2014/15. If you like your stadiums a bit more - er - bizarre, then pay a visit to Voždovac Stadium in Belgrade, home of top flight side Voždovac.     It's on the roof of...

Even though it's taking place some way from Europe's shores, it would be remiss of me not to give a mention to the FIFA 2014 World Cup.   All interest in domestic league issues will be on hold for a month...

When your city rivals have just won the league it can be a bitter pill to swallow - even at the best of times. So spare a thought for the fans of Polonia Warsaw.   This proud capital club lifted the...

When it comes to watching Polish side Widzew Lodz, i'm jinxed. No doubt about it, it's now official.   To intend to see a team once and fail is careless but understandable. To fail a second time is unforgivable. But here...

  It was an unforgettable party at Legia Warsaw in the Polish capital on Sunday. Champions v second, Legia v Lech Poznan.   It was a full house. Legia won 2-0, but there was as much going on in the stands...

Greetings from Poland! This is the first brief update from my Polish football week. It is fair to say it has been a dodgy start. Lodz was my home for the fist night, to see bottom side Widzew in action against...

New stadiums often mean better facilities, great viewing sightlines, etc etc. They often also mean a characterless, soulless bowl. We've seen too many of them. Which is why the continent's newest stadium, in the heart of central Europe, is a breath...

Yep, it's another top ten. And not the most scientific one you'll ever see. And many of the stadiums on this US site are, you've guessed it, American. But there are two stadiums flying the flag for Europe here.  http://www.trend-junky.com/3770/10-sports-stadiums-you-must-visit/...
