Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium – FC Pyunik

Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium was built between 1933 and 1935 under the auspices of architect Koryun Hakoyan. It was then known as the Dinamo Stadium but after major renovation in 1999, including a new roof, it became known as the Republican Stadium (Hanrapetakan Stadium). However in October of that year, the Armenian Prime Minister and a number of other politicians were assassinated in an attack on the parliament and the stadium was officially renamed as the Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium in his honour.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium – Celebration Bowl

The Celebration Bowl began in 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia and is played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Its mission is to provide the competing schools’ alumni, fans, and sponsors with a first-class bowl experience while celebrating the heritage, legacy, pageantry and tradition of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HCBU’s). The game pits a team from the Mid- Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) against a team from the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). It is the only non-playoff bowl featuring two FCS-level schools.

Sandusky Speedway

Middle-America is chock full of short tracks. Sandusky Speedway is one of those that is nestled in the middle of a midwestern town. While Sandusky isn’t exactly a small town, it isn’t a thriving metropolis. It does have small-town aspects, and one of those is having a local short track. Unlike some short tracks, Sandusky is home to a half-mile paved track, not dirt.

The Adelaide Oval received a widely acclaimed substantial renovation costing $575m several years ago and is now regarded as one of the premiere sporting venues in the country.

Sonoma Raceway – IndyCar Series

Sonoma Raceway holds the unique distinction of being a race track that actually looks smaller in person than it does on TV or video games. This bodes well for fans who are in search of a road course where you can see everything from one location. Because of this, the fan experience at Sonoma Raceway is top notch, giving you a view of almost the entire property from several vantage points. In addition, access to the paddock (an extra paddock pass for the IndyCar paddock is required and easily purchased at the track) as well as an expansive fan zone makes it an enjoyable track to visit.

Al Lang Stadium – Tampa Bay Rowdies

Al Lang Stadium – Tampa Bay Rowdies

Taking in a Tampa Bay Rowdies game can be a bit of a surreal experience. Here in the middle of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, sits a former Minor League Baseball stadium that has been transformed into the home of a professional soccer team, where fans tailgate and march through the city center before singing the entire game in support of their favorite team. This is definitely not something you would expect to be seeing in the south, and yet, it stands out as an incredible game day experience.

Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena – Dinamo Tbilisi

Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena – Dinamo Tbilisi

Originally, Dinamo played at the old Central Stadium which could only accommodate 35,000, so with the club’s golden era of the 1970’s a bigger venue was needed. The Vladimir Ilyich Lenin Dinamo Stadium, built on the same site, was opened in 1976 and designed by architect Gia Kurdiani. It could hold 75,000 people and contemporary reports suggest an attendance of 110,000 watched Dinamo’s epic win over Liverpool in 1979. In 1995 the stadium was renamed in honour of Georgia’s greatest player Boris Paichadze and an international match against Germany that year also reputedly saw 110,000 gather.
