Stadium Solutions

An Inside Look at Outdoor Sports

By Richard Zowie


When it comes to outdoor sports stadiums, hardly a day goes by without news of a team moving into a new stadium while another team is working on designs and financing to get a new stadium. For some fans, such as those of the New York Yankees, a new stadium can be a bittersweet experience as they say goodbye to a place that holds unforgettable memories for a newer home. For other fans, leaving an old stadium and moving into new digs to watch their team can be summarized in two words: good riddance.


New stadiums represent a constantly evolving sports trend where teams offer facilities with state-of-the-art features and brief glimpses into the future. These facilities offer two basic things: aesthetic appeal and countless amenities designed to make sports fans quickly fall in love with their team's new "crib." These often translate into better views, improved scoreboards, more luxury suites and, in short, a trip to a ballgame guaranteed to bring them back again and again.
