For those that have been to all three Europa away games so far which was your favourite stadium (not city)?

I think Ajax personally. Marseille was huge, loud, but a bit basic. AEK was nothing special despite being new.

Didn’t do Athens, but the Velodrome wins it easily for me. Thought it was amazing.

Tough call.

Overall, Marseille had the noise (but it was just pure noise), Ajax was the lamest, Athens the tear gaseous. Can’t call it. All different and good and bad in different ways.

I did the last 2 and oddly I think Athens beats Ajax.
Ajax was great but so extreme it just didn't feel safe.

Toilets and teargas aside, Athens was better proportioned, the sound carried much better, not too steep.

Sure it's just a functional bowl, but I've been to enough modern stadiums to know that's easier said than done.

Easy win for Marseille (although not somewhere I’d want to go back to). The atmosphere was nothing like I’ve experienced before and the stadium itself just looked huge and impressive

Marseille and AEK only. Its hard to answer 'best stadium' as many factors. Stade Velodrome is more iconic, visually stunning and bloody enormous. Only Wembley and Old Trafford are bigger in England I think.

Overall much prefered the full Athens away day experience. Athens miles nicer than Marseille imho.

AEK stadium newer, they're super proud of it and walking to the stadium and just around the immediate outside of OPAP with the bars was really nice and chilled with friendly fans, compared to being herded on busses into underground car park in Marseille.

Atmosphere in stadium and acoustics etc, Marseille easily wins. Better than anything I've ever experienced.
