Methodology

To get our seeding list, we used Briefly’s list of the top 25 most beautiful stadiums, as well as the top 30 biggest stadiums from Wikipedia’s list of stadiums by capacity. 

We then used Instagram to find the number of hashtags each stadium has got.

Finally, we looked through Tripadvisor reviews, to find out the number of reviews containing the following words.

  • Beautiful
  • Stunning
  • Aesthetic

We then combined the numbers, and worked out a percentage against the total number of reviews.

Data for Tripadvisor reviews and Instagram hashtags were collected on the 6th of January, and data is accurate as of then.
