Mainly football (soccer) stadiums for me:
  • City Of Manchester Stadium  Smile

  • Maine Road (R.I.P  Sad)

  • The dump on the other side of Manchester they call Old Trafford

  • Bramhall Lane

  • Oakwell
  • Oxford United - forgotten its name as well

  • Saltergate (doesn't really class as a stadium, more like a shed)

  • The Hawthorns

  • Mansfield Town

  • Nou Camp


  • Also been to the Toronto Skydome, saw the Blue Jays get beaten on Canada Day 2001 by, IIRC, Chicago Red Sox.

    EDIT: Also been to Donington Park (motor racing circuit) near Derby.

    Chicago Red Sox

    Try again  Laugh out loud It was either the Chicago White Sox or the Boston Red Sox.

    For me, I've been to the Georgia Dome, Turner Field, Capital City Stadium (home of the Capital City Bombers, the "A" affiliate of the New York Mets), and the Carolina Colliseum (home of the Columbia Inferno, the "AA" affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks)

    "Try again... It was either the Chicago White Sox or the Boston Red Sox."

    OK, my memory didn't serve me as correctly as it should have! It could have been either of those two, to be honest, but I seem to remember it having Chicago in the name, so it must have been the White Sox. Thanks!

    Villanova Stadium (Villanova football) - 1x
    Liacouras Center (Temple Basketball but my HS played a playoff game there)

    As for best...in the NFL I was very impressed with Alltel Stadium...in MLB Camden Yards was also impressive...

    um, KROC, you put Shea Stadium under "major" league parks. Care to correct that error?

    The crappy Single A Stadium for the Savannah Sand Nats

    True enough, KROC. Grayson Stadium is rather old. Most everyone I've known who's gone there has been somewhat disappointed in it. The problem with the South Atlantic League are that the stadiums are extremes...they range from being reminiscent of high school baseball stadiums (like Capital City Stadium http://users.aol.com/charliezeb/stadiums/capcity.htm) to just being quirky (like the Kannapolis Intimidators Fieldcrest-Cannon Stadium, whose scoreboard is labelled "Bad Guys" and "Good Guys" rather than "Visitor" and "Home") to being beautiful (Asheville's McCormick Field).

    Grayson Stadium. Thats it. It was decent enough for what it was/is, a Single A team stadium. It did have a nice clubhouse/bar so it got points there, and wa still fun to go and watch a game. Although when there were like 34 fans in the stadium, the ushers still wouldn't let you move down to the "premium" seating. Bastards.
