Lambeau Field selected as NFL's best stadium

When it comes to NFL stadiums, Lambeau Field is on a lot of bucket lists.

NFL fans will flock there even when the Green Bay Packers are struggling on the field.

The Sporting News agrees. Lambeau was ranked as the best NFL stadium.

"Green Bay boasts the one closest to a must-visit baseball park. It's a cozy place made for the league's smallest-but-most passionate market. Part museum, part mecca, all classic," says The Sporting News.

Seattle's CenturyLink Field was the runner-up. "Seattle lies on Puget Sound, and it's known for coffee, rain and grunge. So it's appropriate for its stadium to have a loud, perked-up crowd that forms its own elemental mosh pit of intimidation. It serves up a home-field advantage like no other."

Rounding out the top five were U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Soldier Field, home of the Chicago Bears, checked in at No. 17. "You can't beat the location right near Lake Michigan on Chicago's Museum Campus. But even after a pricey renovation, it's been hard to find the sweet spot between modernity and maturity. That's especially in relation to the home of Bears' archrivals in Green Bay."
