Football or Soccer, depending on where you are from, is a sport that transcends cultural barriers. We only have to look to an event like the FIFA World Cup to understand the uniting power this sport has. People from all around the world love to show love to the best players and teams around the world.  

When we aren’t watching the game, some of us love to play in a park or backyard with friends or in a local league. With so many breathtaking destinations in the world, it’s no surprise that some there are football pitches that exist in the most unique circumstances. Check out this list of six such places that will definitely blow you away:
