Here's something different

Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne, hosts the Australian Open Final each year...

But during the 2007 World Swimming Championships it was a pool...

Wow some of those are nice

On the other hand I hate some of those stadia that have simply dropped a basketball/tennis/hockey arena at one end of the rectangular football/rugby field and finish it off by constructing a temporary terrace on the one open side of the would-be arena. Seats that have to be completely dismantled as soon as the basketball or tennis or whatever event is over. That's rubbish.

It makes the whole thing look cheap: the whole idea of constructing temporary terrace (usually with metal tubes cheap plastic seats) while at the same time abandoning half of the permanent seats in the stadium is so cheap and tacky.

That's why the Japanese stadiums are by far the most impressive in terms of coming up with varying technology in solving the problem - the permanent seats are actually moved/shoved/twisted/turned a dramatic distance in order to construct the exactly desired venue with perfectly symmetric proportions

Other worthy mentions the French national stadium and the Dallas Cowboys venue

Three Rivers Stadium in baseball configuration.

Between 1970 and 2000, Three Rivers Stadium was home to both the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Three Rivers, like Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, was one of a number of cavernous multi-purpose stadiums built in the late 1960's and early '70s that have since been replaced by facilities tailored for specific sports.

Quote:
Riverfront Stadium, later known as Cinergy Field, (1996-2002) was the home of the Cincinnati Reds National League baseball team and the Cincinnati Bengals National Football League team. Located on the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati, the stadium was best known as the home of "The Big Red Machine," as the Reds were often called in the 1970s. Construction began on February 1, 1968 and was completed at a cost of less than $50 million. On June 30, 1970, the Reds hosted the Atlanta Braves in their grand opening, with Hank Aaron hitting the first ever home run at Riverfront. Two weeks later on July 14, Riverfront hosted the 1970 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. This game is best remembered for the often-replayed collision at home plate between Reds star Pete Rose and catcher Ray Fosse of the Cleveland Indians.

In September 1996, Riverfront Stadium was renamed "Cinergy Field" in a sponsorship deal with Greater Cincinnati's energy company, Cinergy Corporation. In 2001, to make room for Great American Ball Park, the seating capacity at Cinergy Field was reduced to 39,000. There was a huge wall in Center Field visible after the renovations, to serve as the batter's eye. The stadium was demolished by implosion on December 29, 2002.

Capacity 1970-2000
52,952 Baseball
59,754 Football

Reminds me of when the World Wrestling Federation used to hold events at Shea Stadium on a empty pitch.

Looks odd and even the front row seats are far from the ring.

Fixed the pictures. It's tough to find a basketball picture at Lucas Oil Stadium that shows the whole crowd.
