Thanks to services like CableTelevision.net, you see lots of different games but not too many crazy stadiums. Believe it or not, the stadium is just as important as the game itself and there are some truly wacky ones out there both in the country and around the world.
Listed below are some of the more bizarre and unique stadiums in the US and all over the world:
1. Ingalls Rink – New Haven, CT
Built in 1958, there’s a very good reason why people call it the “Yale Whale.” Sporting a strange, sloped and curved spine, the design evokes images of a large swimming mammal more than it does the home team mascot, the bull dog.
2. The Burj Al Arab Hotel Helipad – Dubai, UAE
When the ball goes out on this helipad, it REALLY goes out. All the way out…to a several-story drop. It might be a little bit of a reach to call this a stadium, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention it. Tennis players beware when diving to make that return.
3. Sapporo Dome – Sapporo, Japan
With a sleek and smooth design, this stadium looks more like it’s preparing for take-off than housing a game. However, the design does serve a purpose as the area is known for reaching 20 feet of snow per year. The sleek roof helps alleviate that burden and weight on the structure.
