Sincil Bank, home of Lincoln City FC, has been placed in the top 15 ‘most beautiful football stadiums in the UK’ according to ShortList, a web-based news agency.
Ranked as number 14 in the UK, the Imps’ stadium is among the most beautiful with the likes of Villa Park (Aston Villa) at 2nd Old Trafford (Manchester United) at 3rd.
ShortLists’s editor declares: “There is no doubt that football stadiums are the modern churches. Places for congregations of believers to come together and worship, praying to the god of sporting fortunes that their team shall score more goals than the opposition, and may the referee be smited down, as he knoweth not what he is doing.”
Hmmmm not 100% we’d agree with such a romantic viewpoint, but good to know Lincolnshire floats his boat.
