I ask because Maduro Stadium put pink neon lights on their foul poles to pay homage to the Art Deco/Streamline hotels of Ocean Drive:

This place was not built specifically for sports, but it was home of the Minneapolis Lakers and the Golden Gloves Tournament.

Sports was certainly one of its intended functions, it sat 5,100 in a very solid layout for basketball. kind of a shame to see it in its current state (a parking lot).

Erm, does this count as Art-Deco-ish?

Estadio George Capwell, whose tenant is Club Sport Emelec, an Ecuadorian soccer team. This facade was done in 1991, but it does look kinda Art Deco, at least the lower part.
(Weird thing is, the older and still-standing grandstand from 1945 did not have Art Deco: http://www.azulyplomo.com/php/amplia...558&he=502&ti=)

Regards.

^ In the only photo that shows up, it looks like Roman style architecture, not art deco ^

The Art Deco style looks very impressive in stadiums, The Cotton Bowl and Pacaembú are some of my favorites.

Wow, best example so far. This place is gorgeous. If only they gave it a little bit of love...
