Estadio Azteca is the only stadium which has been able to host two FIFA World Cup finals.
This incredibly huge edifice which can seat up to 105,000 spectators is the home of the national football team and the privately owned Club America. Etienne, this multi-purpose stadium which currently seats 26,500 fans but is currently being redesigned to sit 40,830 fans sets it apart from the rest because of the crazy antics fans employ to encourage their teams.
Tiger Stadium, LSU Tiger Stadium, or “Death Valley” to some, is perhaps the most dangerous place to play in college football.
These are the guys who fight with angry passion and an intimidation factor that just won't quit. With one of the hardest punches on the planet, Tyson feared no one and refused to filter himself at any time, figuring he would use his craziness as an advantage against everyone who dared test him.

Hostility is not necessarily the only factor that can be intimidating in a stadium.
I think its why the Pats were like a dog on a bone with the allegations about the Colts piping in crowd noise surfaced. Never stopped the great teams of the Celtics, Lakers, Knicks, Patriots, Colts, present Packers and our 2007/2008 Giants among the countless examples. I'm sure I've omitted some that should join this list They have that new huge ass stadium and droves of bandwaggon fans all over who occupy everyone else's stadiums.
Talent, hard work and focus overcome crowd noise time and again I'd rank the top 5 like this: 1. For them to not even make this list says something about how fair weather that fan base is.
Which professional players struck fear into their opponents the most?
