Top 10 Best Venues in Sports
Whether it has a storied history and tradition, an innovative or aesthetic design, or is just flat-out electrifying, stadiums are a huge part of sports. Here are some of the best venues.
6. Michigan Stadium
Michigan Stadium, more commonly referred to as “The Big House", seats a staggering 110,000 raucous fans. Built in 1927 and most recently renovated in 2010, The Big House holds the record for most fans ever to attend a football game: On September 7, 2013, a crowd of 115,109 maize and blue faithful watched Michigan defeat Notre Dame.
5. Allen Fieldhouse
The 16,300 seat “barn” oozes basketball history. It sits on Naismith Drive in Lawrence, Kansas, named after the inventor of the game who happened to be KU’s first coach. It’s been called ‘The St. Andrews of college hoops’ and one of the hardest places to win in all of sports. Recently renovated, the arena kept its historic feel with a modern edge. Kansas has won 9 straight Big 12 championships in large part because of home court advantage.
4. Fenway Park
Everybody knows Fenway Park, home of the world famous Boston Red Sox. The baseball-centric town finally took home its first World Series in 86 years back in 2004 with a sweep over the St. Louis Cardinals that made grown men weep out of pure joy. Fenway is known for its “Pesky Pole” and Green Monster. This is usually the first stop on any true baseball fan’s bucket list. The fans are passionate and the setting is historic.
