Think you know your sports teams inside and out? How about from miles above the Earth? We've spanned (and scanned) the globe using Google Maps and found stadiums, arenas, fields, and a number of other sporting venues; now it's up to you to tell us what and where they are. Bonus points if you can name the team(s) that play there.

Leo, I think we can all agree that South America has been well represented in these challenges.

I'll see if I can get it to show up in another one real soon.

said Echowood on April 28, 2009 2:06 PM.

I heard Brazil has some big ass stadiums. Big soccer thingys. Had that Rock in Rio thing down there and all..

said E on April 28, 2009 2:13 PM.

#17 - Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pa: home of the Steelers

said JediJeff on April 28, 2009 2:16 PM.

Just teasing you, Echo! I was pulling a Dave. ;)

In fact you've been all around the world lately.
And I can't deny, it's better for the majority having the local stadiums--except for China's Water Cube and 2/3 exceptions--than soccer stadiums, what is barely known up there.

I'm not having the time to really join the party, but I keep on watching the series. Keep going, it's great.

We have some great stadiums E, but for the Rock in Rio show, only the second edition was on Maracana. The 1st and the 3rd took place on the City of Rock--a place specially built for the gigs--measuring 250 000 m² (around 2.7 million feet²).

Thanks for representing the Mile High city Echo. Go Broncos!

said E on April 28, 2009 3:31 PM.

There had been a noticeable lack of Mile-High representation. I'm glad to do my part. (And had a great time in that fair city last Summer. Please thank your city for treating me well and not throwing me off the side of the cliffs as I drove up to the summit of Mount Evans)

Two more folks. Come on...

One is in Canada and is NOT a Curling stadium.
The other would be a great place to catch Thierry Henry.

said Echowood on April 28, 2009 4:56 PM.

Is 19 Stamford Bridge? Chelsea's stadium?

said JediJeff on April 28, 2009 5:08 PM.

I see where you were going Jeff. Unfortunately, it's not.

said Echowood on April 28, 2009 5:14 PM.

No wait - National Stadium (Saint-Denis Stade de France) in Paris

said JediJeff on April 28, 2009 5:15 PM.

Good game Echo. Do a bunch of these and make em a book. They made a book out of the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon thing, and Snaps. Good, clean fun.

said E on April 28, 2009 6:44 PM.

Great idea E. I'd order one. Just for the pics.

said Leonardo Carvalho on April 28, 2009 6:54 PM.

Thank you for including my beloved Safeco Field. It's a perfect ballpark.

said Johnny Wright on April 28, 2009 6:56 PM.

E- I'm always looking for a way to make a buck. Thanks for the suggestion and I'll be sure to thank you on the dedication page.

Johnny - that one was for you.
