I live in the Wshington D.C. area in the U.S., and the biggest arena in my area which happens to also be one of the largest in the U.S. is the MCI center built in 1997.









It is situated in "Chinatown" in Washington D.C. It is home to the Washington Wizards(Basketball), Washington Capitals(Ice Hockey), and the Georgetown Hoyas(College Basketball).

Australia doesn't really have any arenas. We have plenty of stadiums, but not may arenas. From the way I interpret this thread, I would think that you are talking about hockey arenas and we don't play hockey. We prefer our three codes of football. Australian Rules, Rugby League and Rugby Union.

Could someone define "arena" and "stadium" for me? Here an "arena" is something at the Royal Agricultural Show, for animals to be led around & admired, while the "stadium" was somewhere where boxing matches and pop concerts were held (until it was renamed).

If you're going to distinguish between these two categories of building, I for one need a precise definition.
