A stadium (PL: stadiums or stadia) is a place or venue for (mostly) outdoor sports, concerts, or other events and consists of a field or stage either partly or completely surrounded by a tiered structure designed to allow spectators to stand or sit and view the event. Stadium atmosphere-a collection of environmental cues such as crowd, noise, scent, lighting, music, and visual design-affects live attendees’ emotional and behavioral responses Sports venue means a publicly or privately owned sports or entertainment arena, stadium, community or convention hall, special event center, or amusement facility, or a special event center in a public park, during the 12 hours before or after the sanctioned sporting event. Good stadiums give everyone an equitable view of the pitch, provide comfortable temperatures, and shield fans from the extreme elements that can come from playing during heavy rain, wind, or snow. There’s not much difference between an arena and a stadium, although an arena is enclosed and a stadium sometimes has an open roof. Football is usually played in a stadium, while basketball and other sports typically hold their games in arenas.
