MEN Arena, Manchester, England

Needs moving up the list: From the Offical MEN Arena website:

The venue's versatility has meant that it can be transformed from an intimate theatre environment for 4,500 to a state-of-the-art arena capable of accommodating 21,000.

Joint 14th with the Sydney Superdome methinks?

Cltsouthsider if Lexington can support a arena of around 24,000, Louisville can support an arena that size also. Basketball is huge in Kentucky so larger arenas are possible. I dont know of many cities Lexingon's size with such a large arena. I believe the talk is now that U of L would be housed in the new arena downtown (if it is built).

@Hobodog: So what? The Düsseldorf LTU-Arena has this movable roof, as you can see on one photo in my previous post. The whole inside can be heatet up to 15°C when the roof is closed, there are rock concerts taking place, too. Or are we talking about arenas that must be unable to open their roofs?

LTU-Arena Düsseldorf, Germany, Cap. 65.000:

For ****s sake, its a stadium, not an arena, just like the Millenium Stadium!!!!
Whats the point in comparing arenas that at most can hold 25000-30000 to stadiums that can close their roofs and hold 70000+

Because arenas and stadiums are the same in other countries. Because no-one ever provided a reasonable definition of stadion and arena in this thread.

I think one should provide rather good arguments instead of using the f word.

Here is the biggest indoor arena/stadion in Switzerland

It's called Hallenstadion Stadion is the German word for Stadium.

It has place for 12'000 persons.





It's used for Ice-Hockey and Concerts. I think this thread is a bit useless with it's definition.

Yes, but I think the distinction for the purpose of this thread should be that an arena is a building with tiers of seating around a small playing area which can accommodate ice hockey, basketball, tennis etc., but is too small for a football pitch.

Hoorah for charliep, some understands the difference....

Prehaps it should have been made clearer at the beginning of the thread, but you wouldnt have thought it was neccessary to be fair.
