This year's top 10 is extremely diverse, with Asian stadiums constituting the majority of the entries for the first time. So far, though, only one Asian stadium has won the jury award: the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium in 2015.

Among the finalists is Tottenham Hotspur's new arena after it was opened in 2019. The replacement for White Hart Lane is considered one of the favourites to be named Stadium of the Year, but it will have to beat competition from new stadia in Russia, Japan and Qatar.

There is also a public award for the Stadium of the Year, where anyone can vote on for their favourite.
