Opened in 2015, Monterrey’s BBVA Bancomer Stadium has already earned the nickname ‘El Gigante de Acero’ (The Steel Giant) among fans and it’s not hard to see why.

The 52,000-seater arena squats on a green plateau outside the city of Guadelupe and features a gleaming undulating design, but that’s nothing compared to the spectacular view from the upper tiers…

The stadium design is apparently inspired by the Cera de la Silla mountains that lay beyond it and it’s easy to see why.

It’d an honest-to-god crime to have vistas like that and not make a feature of them.

Has top-tier football ever been played in a more dramatic natural setting? Perhaps only SC Braga have a legitimate shout.
