I believe that in this theme we can consider also stadiums in tv-spots or in music videoclips.

So, for example, the "Let's get loud" video of Jennifer Lopez show us the great Rose Bowl in Pasadena. It would be during the 1999 Women's World Cup Final (soccer) that also is the most-attended women's sports event in history!

It's OK for a stadium named Rose Bowl!

Yikes, pick a well known stadium in the US and chances are there has been a movie scene filmed there.

Rudy - Notre Dame Stadium, University of Notre Dame

Bad News Bears II - Houston Astrodome

The Naked Gun - Dodger Stadium

The movie Major League has an interesting twist in the stadium they used. It was a movie about the Cleveland Indians baseball team, but instead of filming in Cleveland, the ballpark used was the old Miwaukee County Stadium.

Naked Gun was actually filmed at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

A scene from a TV serial (near enough a movie) called Second Coming was also filmed at Maine Road.

Incorrect. The team playing was the Angels, but the stadium used was Dodger Stadium. http://imdb.com/title/tt0095705/locations

My bad. Used Wikipedia rather than IMDb.

So which stadium was the one out of Brewster's Millions? The one where the freight train chugs through the outfield.

There are mountains in the far distance, so it probably ain't New Jersey, maybe somewhere in LA.

What was the golf course used in Caddyshack?

What was the racetrack used mainly in Let it Ride?

FNL also features Ratliff Stadium of course Not as well known, but definitely a great stadium. In the original book, the state championship final was actually played at Memorial Stadium in Austin (before it was called Darrell K. Royal)

Hi Bob,
I've searched on the web, out of curiosity: the golf course in Caddyshack is in Davie, Florida, USA.
For the other question about the racetrack, sorry

Fantastic, if I get over there I will make the pilgrimage. Possibly play through the greenskeepers hut and go for a swim in the club's pool. It would be good to play a round with Rodney Dangerfield, but I believe he popped his clogs recently.

Bummer about the racetrack, I know the one used in Seabiscuit is that track just north of San Diego on the main drag you take to get to Tijuana from LA. Very distinctive architectural style that is noticable from the road.

What about the stadium used in Victory/Escape to Victory. The soccer film set in wartime Paris with Sly Stallone as the goalie/escape artist?

Found the Victory stadium, it's actually in Budapest. MTK stadium.

Yes, I too think it's so: the old MTK Stadium (or Stadion Hidegkuti Nándor) is the stadium in Escape to victory.

Even if there are sources that say that the movie stadium was just Colombes Stadium in Paris.
Maybe, comparing old photos with the scenes in the film, we could be more sure!

One of the episodes of McGyver features GM Dome in Vancouver, at least I think it´s that one. In this case it was used as a baseball arena. Several sequences give rather good picture of the interiors of the arena.

There was an episode of Minder, where Terry McCann(aka, Dennis Waterman) was at a Chelsea match, played at Stamford Bridge circa 1980.

Also had a scene where he was entering the ground and the ticket prices were advertised on the entrance gates. 'Adults 1 pound'.

What is it now, something like 50. Which is criminal 'inflation'.
