In baseball, talk to any aficionado and three stadiums come to mind; Fenway, Wrigley and Dodger Stadium. Three jewels that are irreplaceable and incomparable.
Okay. I'll give you Dodger stadium. I bow to your superior baseball knowledge!

I would still say that LA is short of London for worldwide iconic stadia, though.

Is this about football stadia only, or sport stadia in general, because if this is the case then Athens can be in the poll, with the abnormal concentration of most prime athletic facilities of an entire country into one city. And by 2011 home of 3 UEFA elite stadiums.

It would have to be London, because nobody seems to share stadiums in that city, they all build there own (even if its down the road in the case of Chelsea and Fulham).

American and Australian cities cant compete because of the multiple tenants stadiums have due to government funding of stadiums (i personally think its a better use of resources and gets a better quality stadium). Melbourne, which may have the best sporting facilities, has 9 AFL teams sharing 2 stadiums with the cricket, soccer and rugby teams.

Rio de Janeiro has a lot of football stadiums, most are small and old, but quite charming.

Actually there is an old discussion on which city has the highest number of football clubs, Rio, Buenos Aires and London are the ones with the most, Buenos Aires wins if you count the whole metropolitan area I think.

I'll give my vote to Landshark Stadium (the stadium seems to change names every time i see a game there)

The Stadium is the home of NFL, NCAA, & MLB regular seasons, the Orange Bowl, NFL superbowls, BCS championships, next years NFL Pro Bowl game, 2 World Series', World Baseball Classic, ect.

I have probably watched more games on TV in this stadium than any other stadium.

I'm not exactly a sport freak, but London is widely known for its stadiums.

So I'd say London.

Only American sports though it has never really hosted anything of international significance.
Many stadiums have held far more Important internationaly significant events.
For Example
MCG has hosted 1956 Olympics, 2006 Chmmonwelth games, The Ashes, Football internationals, Rugby internationals as well as nationaly significant events such as AFL Grand Final
LA Memorial Coliseum has hosted two Olympics
Those were just the First two which sprang to mind but there are many more which have far greater history and significance than Landshark Stadium such as Wembley, Maracana, etc..

My point was that you're asked to pick a city boosted by its stadia, not a stadium which hosts many events. How did you not realize this?

So hosting an olymipic games once or twice makes a stadium more worthy than one that hosts worlds 3 largest sports leagues (MLB, NFL, NCAA)on a daily/weekly basis plus all the championship games on a yearly bases?

Correction: The United States' largest sports leagues. I find it hilarious the ignorance of that statement considering you didn't even list the american sports league with the largest global audience (NBA). Still puny compared to the UEFA Champions League.

3 Largest sports leagues. Nobody outside of America follows either of those sports let alone leagues. One isn't even professional. I'm sorry but that sort of comment is what has given the US such a bad reputation worldwide. Complete ignorance of anything outside of your country.

Sorry if I offended any Americans by this. I do know that you also happen to have a lot of very smart people and you are not all this ignorant.
