Lambeau Field

Filed under: Stadiums, Wisconsin

Lambeau Field is the home stadium of the NFL’s Green Bay Packers. Originally opened in 1957 as City Stadium, it replaced Green Bay’s original City Stadium as the Packers’ home field. For that reason, it was also informally known as New City Stadium until 1965, when it was renamed for Packers founder E.L. (Curly) Lambeau following his death.

Lambeau Field was the first stadium built for the exclusive use of an NFL team, and is the longest continuously-occupied stadium in the NFL.

Fenway Park

Filed under: Massachussetts, Stadiums

Fenway Park is the home ballpark of the Boston Red Sox baseball club.

Fenway Park opened on April 20, 1912, the same day as Tiger Stadium in Detroit. After that stadium closed in 1999, Fenway became the oldest ballpark still in active use in Major League Baseball.

It is located near, and named for, the Fenway neighborhood in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts, United States. It takes its name from a comment by former owner John I. Taylor: “It’s in the Fenway section of Boston, isn’t it? Then name it Fenway Park.”[2]

Fenway Park hosted the 1946, 1961, and 1999 Major League Baseball All-Star Games

Rogers Centre (SkyDome)

Filed under: Canada, Stadiums

Rogers Centre, formerly known as SkyDome, is a multi-purpose stadium in Toronto, Ontario, situated next to the CN Tower near the shores of Lake Ontario. It is home to the American League’s Toronto Blue Jays and the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts. While it is primarily a sports venue, Rogers Centre also hosts other large-scale events such as conventions, trade fairs, and concerts.

Rogers Centre is noted for being the first stadium to have a fully-retractable motorized roof, as well as a 348-room hotel attached to it, with 70 rooms overlooking the field. It is also the most recent North American major-league stadium built to accommodate both football and baseball, although some of the newer baseball parks have been known to host the occasional college football game.
