Planning where your next home base will be? Here are the top sports venues in Blueground cities.

Panathenaic Stadium | Athens

The only stadium in the world built completely from marble, there have been sporting events at this Athens treasure since the 5th century BC. In 1896, it hosted parts of the first modern Olympics and was used again as an Olympic venue in 2004.

Fenway Park | Boston

An iconic baseball field, Fenway Park has hosted Boston Red Sox games since 1912. It’s one of MLB’s smaller ballparks, but is big on charm. The giant left field wall, dubbed the Green Monster, is truly a sight to behold in person.

Wembley Stadium | London

Consider adding Wembley to your agenda during your first weekend in the UK’s capital. It’s a classic soccer stadium that holds up to 90,000 people and hosts important matches, including the FA Cup Finals. Plus, it’s the home ground of England’s national team.

Madison Square Garden | New York

No trip to New York City would be complete without checking out Madison Square Garden. MSG is home to the New York Rangers hockey team, and New York Knicks basketball team, and hosts lots of other entertainment, including concerts, boxing matches, and circus performances.

Camp Nou | Barcelona

Camp Nou has been the home of FC Barcelona’s soccer club since 1957. It’s the largest soccer stadium in Europe based on its capacity of 99,354. When you visit, be sure to explore the trophy room, where you can see every trophy the club has won — which is a lot!

Capital One Arena | Washington, DC

Located in the Penn Quarter neighborhood, this indoor arena is home to the Washington Capitals hockey team, Washington Wizards basketball team, and the Georgetown University men’s basketball team.

Santiago Bernabéu Stadium | Madrid

This soccer stadium opened in 1947, holds 81,044 spectators, and is the home of Real Madrid. When it’s not hosting games for “Los Blancos,” Santiago Bernabéu Stadium occasionally has large concerts for artists such as U2, Bruce Springsteen, and The Rolling Stones.
Empower Field at Mile High | Denver

Have you ever seen a game played 5,280 feet above sea level? Check that off your list when you stop by this football stadium where the Denver Broncos play home games. Its unique, wavy exterior was inspired by the nearby Rocky Mountains.

Circuit of the Americas | Austin

This 3.4 mile (5.5 kilometer) race track with 20 turns is home to the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix. It can hold up to 120,000 fans and has hosted ESPN’s X Games and numerous concerts at the outdoor amphitheater within its track. If you feel inspired to rent a car while in the Texas capital, we’ve got you covered.

Stade Roland Garros | Paris

The red clay of Stade Roland Garros’ tennis courts is synonymous with the French Open, one of tennis’ four major annual tournaments. A complex of 20 courts, this unique venue also contains the Museum of the French Federation of Tennis, also known as the “Tenniseum.”
Wrigley Field | Chicago

Wrigley Field | Chicago

Built way back in 1914, Wrigley Field is home to the Chicago Cubs baseball team, who recently broke their century-long World Series curse (much to the delight of the team’s diehard fanbase). This classic ballpark has many unique features, including an outfield wall made from brick and covered in ivy.

Mohammed bin Rashid Stadium | Dubai

Currently in development, this state-of-the-art stadium is planned to seat 60,000 people. Its cutting-edge design will feature a bowl-style stadium raised 26 feet (18 meters) off the ground and create zero carbon emissions.

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum | Los Angeles

Built in 1923, the LA Coliseum has hosted numerous sporting events, including portions of the 1932 and 1984 Olympic Games (and will again in 2028). It’s a National Historic Landmark and the home of the University of Southern California’s football team.

Lumen Field | Seattle

Found in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood, Lumen Field is home to the Seahawks football team and Sounders soccer team. Just don’t expect it to be quiet here. Seattle fans set a record for the level of crowd roar at an outdoor stadium, recorded at 137.6 decibels.

Oracle Park | San Francisco

Oracle Park is the home to the Giants baseball team and one of the highlights of San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood. The stadium is located right on San Francisco Bay. In fact, home runs hit to the right field often splash into the waters of McCovey Cove, where kayakers race to get the ball.
