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 stadiums in sports.
10. Cameron Indoor Stadium
Cameron Indoor Stadium, home of the Duke Blue Devils, famously seats just 8,800 spectators. The students are right on top of the court, making it one of the hardest places in the country for away teams to leave with a win. Comprised of mostly nerds, the “Cameron Crazies” chant, scream, and create an environment unique to only this arena. It’s a hard ticket, but a must for any sports fanatic.
9. CenturyLink Field
It may not have the history of these other venues, but what it does have is noise and an unmatched home field edge. The Seahawks do not lose at home, thanks in large part to “The 12th Man.” In 2013, the fans made CL Field the loudest stadium in the world with a decibel level of 137.6 against the New Orleans Saints. It’s the eardrum shattering hysteria that makes this venue one of the best stadiums in sports.
8. Soldier Field
Since 1971, Soldier Field has been home to the Chicago Bears. Offering stunning views of both the city skyline and Lake Michigan, the stadium combines the history of the NFL’s oldest stadium with modern amenities, as it was recently overhauled in 2003. It’s cold, it’s loud, and it’s on the must-visit list of the best NFL stadiums.
7. Madison Square Garden
It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing facility, nor is it as modern as some of the others on here, but located in the heart of downtown Manhattan, MSG has an electricity that can’t be recreated. It captures a buzz that led to the nickname ‘The World’s Most Famous Arena.’ Built in 1968 right atop Penn Station, The Garden houses both the Knicks and Rangers. A recent vote extended the lease only 10 years, meaning you need to visit the Garden sooner rather than later.
