    Thought this may be an interesting thread, anyway, just post whatever stadiums you've been at, passing by stadiums don't count, for example, I've been on a bus passing by the Britannia Stadium, a car passing Thomand Park(many times) and a tube passing Wembley a few times but they don't count.

    Ireland:
    Croke Park
    Aviva Stadium(then known as Lansdowne Road)
    Pearse Stadium
    Terryland Park
    Showgrounds(Sligo Rovers)
    Galway Sportsgrounds
    Corinthian Park

    The last four are all less than 10,000 seats

    England:
    White Hart Lane
    Reebok Stadium(outside)
    Anfield
    Old Trafford

    Spain:
    Nou Camp
    Barcelona Olympic Stadium

    13, not bad, but I may be forgetting some.:)

    Honestly, not too many considering that I'm mainly a fan of American sport and live in England.

    Wembley Stadium - 2011 Rugby League 4 Nations - England vs Australia & Wales vs New Zealand
    Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid - Stadium tour on a school trip this last March
    Odsal Stadium, Bradford - Had a season ticket for Bradford Bulls rugby league a few years back
    Headingley Rugby Stadium, Leeds - Went to a few Bradford vs Leeds rugby league derby games and a Tykes rugby union game, also played there at half time once.
    Elland Road, Leeds - Rugby league 4 Nations 2009 Final -England vs Australia
    DW Stadium, Wigan - Rugby league Tri-Nations 2004 - England vs Australia
    Etihad Stadium, Manchester - Rugby league Tri-Nations 2004 - England vs Australia
    Headingley Cricket Ground, Leeds - Had a Yorkshire season ticket a year or two back
    Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Manchester - Went to see a Muse concert in 2010, not technically sport ;)
    Scarborough Cricket Ground - Saw a couple of Yorkshire cricket games there
    Cougar Park, Keighley - Saw a Challenge Cup rugby league match there against St Helens
    Knowsley Road, St Helens - Saw a Super League rugby playoff match between Bradford and St Helens
    Galpharm Stadium, Huddersfield - Saw a Challenge Cup rugby league semi final there and two World Club Challenges between Bradford & Aussie NRL sides

    That's more than I thought I'd done actually, guess my dad taking me to loads of rugby league and cricket matches when I was younger boosts up my count quite a bit.

    EDIT: Also, I'm jealous as hell at some of the lists you Americans have posted.

    Envying you over the pond Blitz, you've been to the stadia of both of the US teams I follow; NY Jets and the Blue Jays.

    EDIT: Honestly, I'd love to go to America for a few weeks and hop around different baseball games; maybe follow the Jays on a road trip. I love the retro/throwback and downtown ballparks most of all. Visiting some of those would be just awesome.

    Tom, as much as they are the only team from there in the MLB, they are still in Canada, those Blue Jays :dopey:

    I've never been to a game outside of the US though. I toured both stadiums.

    That looked stupid didn't it? :lol: I meant I'd like to visit some of the American parks whilst the Blue Jays are playing there on the road; a trip to the Rogers Centre would still be cool though.

    An honorary mention here, I was born in Watford General Hospital, all of (according to Google Maps) 0.2 miles from Vicarage Road, and if I recall correctly from their season in the premier league, the hospital was visible on the cameras during matches.:lol:

    I've only been to three: Reliant Stadium, the Toyota Center, and Robertson Stadium. I had been to a college game at Reliant Stadium as well as for my Associate's in the Arts graduation ceremony. I've been to Toyota Center to see the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund Game. I saw the University of Houston play against Southern University in a football game at Robertson Stadium.

    I'm not really a baseball fan, so I can't say I've been to Minute Maid Park. I don't mind association football. I'd love to visit or see a Dynamo game at BBVA Compass Stadium.
