Multi-Purpose Stadiums

Let's have a thread for stadiums that host more than one sport. But preferably not just, you know, arenas that host basketball and hockey and arena football, where the arrangement is basically the same.

See how setups are created.

Example: Aloha Stadium, Hawaii. Air cushions and tracks allow the different sections of stands to move around into three different formations, though I think the recent upgrade locked it into the football grid.

Football (Normal):







Baseball (Rarely):

Yea, it's locked now because it was starting to rust badly and they were afraid to move it.

Sapporo Dome - 53,853:

The natural grass field waits outside in the sun while other events are taking place and slides in when it's needed.


Consadole Sapporo, J. League 2nd Division


Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters, Pacific League

The Saitama Super Arena is capable of transforming from a 5,000 seat venue to a 20,000 seat arena to a 30,000 seat stadium thanks to gigantic, moveable seating sections:

There is another arena with similar capabilities known as the M-Wave located in Nagano:

The Alamodome in San Antonio, TX has hosted I think every sport or event imaginable. High school, college and NFL football. Canadian Football, NBA and college basketball, rodeos, motocross, boxing, monster trucks, concerts, trade shows, soccer. I even want to say it's hosted a hockey game.

I love PGE Park in Portland, Oregon, home to the Portland Beavers of the Pacific Coast Triple-A League, Portland State University football, the Portland Timbers of the USL First Division and soon to be MLS. The stadium itself dates back to 1926...
