Haunted Stadiums From Around The World

We have provided you with some interesting information about stadiums around the world, but today we bring you a story with a little twist. The Fan Park Crew decided that they do some research to find a few stadiums that are allegedly haunted. 

Estadio do Dragão - Porto

The incident happened on a Champions League evening in Portugal, where Porto was up against Paris Saint-Germain. Then Porto midfielder, James Rodriguez scored a magnificent goal for the Portuguese side, and during the goal celebration a cameraman picked up something celebrating the goal with supporters in the stands. It’s said that the ghost is an old lady who lived on the site many years ago - and it seems she enjoys her football.

Highbury – Old Arsenal Stadium

The old hunting ground of Arsenal football club was reportedly haunted by their former manager Herbert Chapman - while there were also talks of a horse haunting the ground. The horse apparently died during the construction of the North Bank stand, while the explanation around Herbert wasn’t very clear.

Saint Mary’s Stadium – Southampton

In 2001 Southampton were having to a season to forget in their newly built stadium. It was believed that the ground was haunted by spirits after Pre-Christian tombs were removed from the site so that the stadium could be built. The myth around the stadium was reportedly so strong that the club actually called a white witch to the grounds to calm the spirits.

Ghazi Stadium – Afghanistan

There is an aura around the stadium which is reportedly fierce and disturbing, but there haven’t been any sightings of ghosts yet. The national stadium was once a public execution area for convicts, during the Taliban reign. It’s said that the spirits of those who died still linger around the stadium, and to this day people refuse to visit it after the sun has set.

Stadium Of Light – Sunderland

It's said that the Stadium Of Light is haunted by an 18th century wrecker, named Spotee. His job back then was to guide ships safely into the port when he was alive. In 2005 backroom staff and players reported that they had seen a shadowy figure in a dimly lit corridor a few times, and now the club is convinced that they have a spirit walking around.
