Wow. Shout out G-TOWN! Also Trivia for you.... Newton wasn't in Grantham when he 'discovered' (or coined the term) gravity. Neither was tree. He was in Woolsthorpe (Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth). The house still stands and i think they reckon the tree is now 400+ years old. Is that even possible? I'm uncertain if the apple made it. Great video again mate. Hope everyone's doing good.

Did you know bald and bankrupt is actually a really creepy incel type who (before making his videos) traveled to these countries to take advantage of poor women in the most disgusting way? Same for his friend Harold Baldr. There was lots of other nasty shit bald and bankrupt did because someone found his profile on an old incel/pua forum. Have a look on Google you should find info on it, there used to be a sub reddit for this info i think it was called bald and bankrupt dossier.

Awesome Bald & Bankrupt reference, but unfortunately this video must be missing some stadiums... Only in Brazil there's two stadiums that fit the criteria to be on that list: Grêmio's old Olímpico Monumental, in Porto Alegre, had a record attendence of 98 thousand, it's closed since 2013 and expected to be demolished soon; and the old public stadium of Salvador city, Fonte Nova, with a record attendence of 110 thousand, was totally demolished in 2010 for the construction of the new Fonte Nova for the 2014 world cup.

You missed Hampden Park, Glasgow, Scotland. Holds a lot of records. It was allegedly the largest football stadium for attendances in the world during the early part of 20th century. Ground improvements increased the official capacity of the ground to 183,388 in 1937, but the SFA were only allowed to issue 150,000 tickets for games.[19] The 1937 Scotland v England match had an official attendance of 149,415, but at least 20,000 more people entered the ground without tickets.[19][20] A week later the 1937 Scottish Cup Final between Celtic and Aberdeen drew an official crowd of 147,365, with 20,000 more people locked outside.[19] Biggest attendance at a European Cup tie was Celtic v Leeds 1970 semi-final 136,000 Hampden Park (official attendance would have been 140,000).

Careful: Stadium of the Light is Sunderland's stadium, so "Estádio da Luz" or "Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica" remains like that, without translation. "Luz" means "light" but it is also a neighborhood in Lisbon, near the stadium.

Fantastic video again, Alfie. I'm glad you put in Strahov Stadium as I was in Prague 2 months ago and had no idea about the stadium. Looked where in Prague it is located & noticed it is on the west side of the famous Petrin Tower lookout point. I had a quick look at my photos from when I went to the top of the tower & low and behold, what do ya know, I have a photo of it without even realising it. Incredible structure.

Only problem why it shouldn't be in this list is the fact that no Football game was ever played there. Only now when AC Sparta Praha uses it as their training base Football is played. Still tho one of the most epic stadiums there are. And I can visit it every day if I want, it's 30 min by tram from my house :D

A better video would be “7 BEST football stadiums that no longer exist” or “Most missed stadiums” something along those lines. Worthy contenders for the for me are: Ali Sami Yen - Galatasaray Boleyn Ground - West Ham Estádio da Luz (original) - Benfica Highbury - Arsenal Maine Road - Manchester City Probably loads more that I’ve missed

Alfie, I'm begging you, please do a video about the best players throughout history who were never allowed/never had the opportunity  to play in some of the best leagues in the world, either because of circumstances out of their control or because of their own faults. One player in particular I really want you to cover is one of the best Greek players of all time: Vasilis Hatzipanagis. Considered to be the 'Greek Maradona' he spent the majority of his career stuck in Greece with Iraklis F.C. despite multiple of Europe's best clubs like Arsenal, Lazio and Porto trying to sign him. The board of the club didn't allow him to leave or even represent Greece on the international stage due to how valuable he was to them. He's such an interesting player and I honestly think you'd love his story mate!

Wait, so the Strahov Stadium, which currently very much still exists, tops a list of the seven largest football stadiums that no longer exist? Not only that, but it is still being used for football, just not actual matches. I don’t want to be that guy, Alfie, but you could’ve put either one of the Tower Athletic Grounds in New Brighton, Merseyside (100,000 capacity according to a book Wikipedia sourced) or the Estadio das Antas in Porto (90,000 capacity according to a different book Wikipedia sourced), two stadiums that were actually demolished.

​@Martin Burmeister It's still being used for football though, and the place still exists. The video's title is 7 HUGE Football Stadiums that No Longer Exist. The building is most definitely there. There are seats there. It hasn't been demolished. Unless the place has been physically torn down, it really isn't eligible. In the end, it doesn't matter, it's just a YouTube video, and I still found it interesting.

Alfie The record in the Old Estádio da Luz is 140k at least when portugal won the u20 final in 1991. There are no records of that but my dad would go to every game and told it had more people than that classico. I would have loved to go there, my dad was one of the 7 founders of Red Devils Ultras and tells me amazing stories, people brought their own 5/10 liters of wine, a griller to grill some steaks, would go inside with knifes to cut bread, feed the securities whenever they were hungry and nobody was ever hurt. It all changed on an away game in our league when a fan threw a bottle of wine to the linesman head and he blacked out. A porto fan would always bring a pig and whenever they scored he would go around the pitch and everyone would call him "porco" (pig) as it is very similar to porto name and tbf that´s what their are xD

Have you ever done a video on quirky old grounds? Norwich used to play at the Nest which was an old chalk pit I believe. I used to live very close to it and you could still see crush barriers and advertising hoardings up until the early-mid 80s.The corner collapsed several times due to the od chalk mines (I think they were neolithic) and the original Russell Allison (groundsman,there have been three of them) had to shore it up with wooden beams!
