Ultimate Sporting Venue Tournament

New Year, New Ultimate Tournament!


I thought we would try something a little eclectic here. By that I mean, any and all sports and sports arenas are open to be nominated. Everything from giant superdomes in US Football to quirky soccer stadia built into mountains. Maybe your fancy is something completely different like the Ally Pally in Darts or the Crucible in Snooker. Multisports venues could be well represented too with the likes of Madison Square Garden. Motorsports, Olympic games, cricket, baseball. This is all to say nothing of our own fair island and our games.

For now, let’s focus on what you’re gonna nominate. I think for the sake of my sanity, I’ll have to put some sort of limit on it. A nomination should state the venue and the sport you are associating it with. E.g. Villa Park, Football (or soccer)

So make your submissions with the following criteria in mind;

-You may choose 2 venues per sport.

-You may choose no more than 5 sports.

-Your nomination must be sent via PM

Hard to separate venues from the events that I've seen in them. Have to try to be analytical.

For example, the best match I've ever seen happened in possibly the worst stadium I've ever been in...

I'll cheer you all on from the side line on this one because other than that, I'm of no use to anyone in a sporting game. I'll follow along anyway, might learn a thing or two

You can vote in what you think is most impressive or quirky or pretty. Everyone is welcome and you’ll be a welcome addition.

Oh yeah, I forgot about being able to vote later on. Ah I'm confusing myself now thinking of Walrus', & them being just for people who've put in noms. I need more coffee. Lol.

Cool so. I'll join in after other people in the know have put forward all the nominations
