Multi-purpose stadiums / arenas

These stadiums or arenas have been used for things they weren't originally designed for (or maybe they were). Have fun.

Stade de France & Saitama Super Arena - truly innovative multi purpose stadia.
I don't like when a basketball court is just placed in a football sized domed stadium,
without any major seat reconfigurations, but Saitama does that perfectly.
