Hey Joe a great list. For the next one look at two more cricket grounds. Dharamsala in Northern India, near the Himalayas and Queenstown in New Zealand
Joe, respectfully, this is too much for my TL.
Dunno why, but this thread gives me hope for humanity
Thanks for sharing @JoePompliano , content is 🔥🔥🔥! 😎
Gahanga Cricket stadium, Rwanda
This was really cool. Followed
Great thread Joe! Some beautiful places to visit on upcoming trips
Missed boulders
Beautiful. Not a sports venue but the best public pool I’ve ever seen Chamonix in France
Should’ve all been golf courses
Whitton Sports Centre 😍
Estádio Municipal de Braga (Braga, Portugal)
Not mad, because you’re 100% correct, but disappointed you beat me to the “Amazing list, but check out what’s in Braga” post
What did Canada ever do to you ? Haha
Do the top 50 golf course views
Brasilia Temosa “beach pitch” created by community members in Recife, Brazil in conjunction with @lovefutbol
Cliffside community-built pitch in Cantagalo, Rio de Janeiro.
Somewhere in Mexico.
Really enjoyed this thread, thanks
This is a great coffee table book, if not one already
Hi Joe, great thread. I think you overlooked one - The City Ground, home of 2x European Champions, @NFFC. Cheers!
You forgot La Playa Stadium at SBCC in Santa Barbara, CA.
Wonderful list. Old Head on the coast of Ireland is amazing and worth a note.
You are missing @OracleParkSF in the list!
How did Folsom Field not make the list?
How you gonna include Wrigley but not Oracle Park??
Wonderful thread, Joe ! Amazing places ! Cheers !
You forgot Mandalika International Circuit Lombok, Indonesia.
Leh, Ladakh, in india.

Broome Turf Club, North Western Australia
Forgot one. Oracle Park, San Francisco, CA
San Jose Costa Rica should have made this list too. Smh.
Incredible! Surprised Folsom Field in Boulder, CO didn't make the list... 🤯
Thanks for the beautiful photos
The Carmelo Anthony basketball court in San Juan, Puerto Rico
I have been to 3/50
Thought this one would make the list : Braga Municipal Soccer Stadium, was carved and built into the rock
Bellerive Oval in Tasmania is pretty nice
Cabot Cliffs GC, Cabot Links Golf Resort, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
Northwestern university soccer/lacrosse stadium is pretty cool images.app.goo.gl/zP7pKr1ta4oLG5…

Is this considered an ordered list or an unordered list of your top 50? Or even just 50 notables?
Cape Town Stadium
My home track/baseball field when I lived in San Diego had an incredible view.
Folsom Field, Boulder, Colorado images.app.goo.gl/2wZ7FD2My7vZ1c…
Wife's uncle's basketball court in Montana. It was pretty amazing.

51. Blundstone Arena Hobart Tasmania @HurricanesBBL
(Possibly sensitive)
(Possibly sensitive)
Really enjoyed your thread. Seems like great fodder for a calendar or something?
51. Saalfelden Arena in Pinzgau, Austria 🇦🇹 You know the home of @FCPSen deserves to be on the list @JoePompliano 😉
We're a little biased, but we support this message! (And this isn't even the best shot of the stadium!)
How's about this one? Top 10 at least! 😍😂
1. Blue Wahoos Stadium in Pensacola, FL
The list could have not been completed without Beşiktaş football stadium in İstanbul, Bosphorus, Turkey.
some beautiful stadiums there
Bamburgh cricket club, Northumberland. England
Newlands cricket ground in cape town is pretty cool as well
The fact that so many Croatian venues are on here has the 1/4th Croatian in me beaming with joy 😂🇭🇷 especially the Imotski stadium because my grandfather’s family came to the US from there.
Not enough cricket on this list (also the wellington and Chicago ones… no chance!)
No monte carlo tennis tournmament, on a cliffs edge with sea views?
A baseball field in Linesville, PA
He already had a byu one. They basically have the same view
Soccer Field - The Float @ Marina Bay Sands Singapore
For future consideration - @cgrand3 Stadium!
Oracle Park?
51. Tropicana Field. St. Petersburg, FL
Camp Randal stadium is in a really pretty location
Stadium High School in Tacoma, Washington
The Float @ Marina Bay, Singapore...
Ever seen these? Point Loma Nazerene University baseball field
George Washington HS football field in San Francisco
Acre, Israel soccer field
Piran, Slovenia 🇸🇮
Moses Mabhida yona?
Banff Springs golf course should have made that list.
All of those and no Pancho Arena?
Broome horse race track
Lit thread alert
What a list Joe!! 👏👏👏
Como football stadium… Lake Como, Italy.
Long Reef Gold Course, Collaroy, Sydney.
Balmoral Oval, Sydney.
This gotta be higher
Magusa Turk Gucu Football Club’s “Canbulat Stadium”. Edge of the city walls, nearby the Mediterranean sea and the port. Location; Famagusta, North Cyprus
Llysfaen Banana Pitch, each corner flag is in a different time zone.
A few years ago there was a car parking over there…
The setting of Valleymount GAA club in Wicklow is one of the best from my corner of the earth.
some incredible venues on here! This is the only one I’ve been to!
I’ve been to the Central Coast Stadium for RL and seen the Wellington stadium from the outside. Some incredible venues in that list
You forgot Al Lang Stadium... Home of the @TampaBayRowdies
Where’s Fenway?
Add this to your list
The pool isn’t bad either!
I would love to watch a match on every soccer field
It’s one of my home sports grounds, but it’s not even the most beautiful in the country. There’s more sports than the ones listed. Try this.
Queenstown is far more spectacular than Wellington. Wellington is a well appointed stadium but Queenstown is just a stunning place to watch cricket
but neither in the same league as Pukekura Park.
Check this out @BR4DY! Thanks for the shout out @JoePompliano
yeeha the caketin
Compare and contrast: the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch, South Africa:
And the Cape Town Stadium, Green Point, Cape Town, South Africa.
Also Newlands Cricket Ground
Not bad at night either
It's not Newlands, mind. But where is?
this does not belong in this list lmao
Disagree, the view towards the townbelt is incredible. This view isn't the one.
Was not expecting to see the CakeTin on this list.
This is awesome! (As is the whole list) Based on the layout it’s probably a Futsal court? Usually played indoors but an outdoor setting. Awesome!
Humble brag. Here is the other Dubrovnik court from the house we rented.
Imagine trying to hit a corner three on the top side of the court here
I was scrolling through the list waiting to mention this field. Stopped to watch a local game here en route to Machu Picchu. It’s a stunning venue Have a look at Estádio Municipal de Braga. And Bordeaux. Two of my favorites
Stayed the night there in May of 2016 when the national team beat El Salvador. People were out playing and celebrating on the field all night. Was an amazing sight.
We hiked by this venue coming off 7 day treck on Salkantay trail ahead of Machu Picchu. Amazing beautiful venue.
sir correct it Balochistan is a separate nation , it is not pakistan
You smell like yet-another-indian-hater; an impostor 🇮🇳 but I’m not surprised. That’s what you guys are about. This is Gwadar, Pakistan! ✨🇵🇰✨
Joe please give some attention to this fella, he might have a temper tantrum if he is not acknowledged in something completely unrelated of what your thread is about.
this one is underrated should be higher
Bookmarked this feed earlier C2. Will have a good look tomorrow!
Much appreciated!
Hahahahahaha. Yea ok man.
This one sucks
Comparatively speaking it does.
Personally, I'd go with Soldier Field. Closer to downtown and surrounded by the lakefront, Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium.
ruined by the spaceship addition
True, I'd prefer if it kept the former look considering how well it fits with the city's architecture as a whole, but regardless, pictures like this fill me with awe
Always thought this was in the city lol
it is in the city…
Thought you could watch from buildings no?
Those are the seats you are referring to
Gotcha. Need to check it out
it is. the city extends for miles north past the field. Addison is 3600 north, and the north end of the city is 7500
Curtis Granderson Stadium (UIC)
I can always appreciate Wrigley, even as a Brewers fan. I love how it's just tucked away in a neighborhood. Like, there's people that live just across the street. You're just driving down some local streets and all of a sudden, there's Wrigley out of nowhere right in front of you
Napoli stadium is always this gorg 🤩
I think that is the Medieval Manhattan, San Gimignano in Tuscany
I’d also add WIN Stadium, Wollongong (Australia) too.
How you leave out that basketball court in the Philippines projects
Most beautiful place I’ve ever been @Pirates ❤️⚾️
I’ve been to over 20 MLB parks and it’s one of my favorites
PNC and AT&T are definitely the prettiest parks in MLB
PNC nice but better than Oracle?
Was wondering how far I would have to scroll to find this treasure of a baseball park. 👍
Soooo awesome PNC Park made this list. Yeah 412!!!!
Oracle Park in San Francisco, California?
perfection
The most beautiful place in the world
The credibility of this list has gone far downhill
Best ballpark in @MLB !
beautiful stadium, awful owners.
You missed these 2 gems from Pakistan. 1. Gwadar Cricket Stadium, Gwadar, Baluchistan. 2. Pissan Cricket Ground, Nagar, Gilgit Baltistan.
He actually has the first one.
41. Gwadar cricket stadium in Balochistan, Pakistan.
Oh my bad, didn't notice.
Blaaahhh 😂😂😂
I’m coming to Pittsburgh lol
Still need to make my way to this one. Many games at Three Rivers
Great ballpark. Terrible team.
Having this above Camden yards is borderline crazy
Baltimore is a sewer buddy.
There's also the Municipal Stadium in Braga, Portugal. Built into the mountain.
Immediate failure by not having Augusta National on the list.
Based on the pictures, I'm assuming backdrop was an important factor in rankings these. Hence why Pebble Beach surrounded by the coastline made the list and ANGC surrounded by Augusta neighborhoods did not. Also, Cypress Point s/b listed over Pebble IMO.
Little League World Series field
find me a better place to play competitive dog frisbee
Newlands, Cape Town should have featured in the list.
oh hey I’ve played here!
Scrolled through the thread mostly for the purpose of ensuring you shared this. Good call!
This list/these pictures are pleasant af.
Was scrolling for this one
Being a tennis junkie, this is my favorite one! Monte Carlo tennis club should be on the list!
Not the greatest pics but this futbol pitch on a cliffside on the Amalfi coast near Positano ranks
Walked past this on my walk from my hostel to the downtown core!
‘Soccer’ in Croatia? Really? FOOTBALL
Played here!
Mera dess!!!😭😭
Thats my home 🏡 town. I miss my home 😭
This is spectacular
Looks like Hogwarts Quidditch stadium
they should play tests here omg
Some more from the stadium, last week! The Dhauladhar range of the greater Himalayas provide a surreal backdrop.
Imagine the traffic on game day 😬
No Oracle Park in San Francisco 😢 These are all beautiful, though. Well done.
(No comment)
The Cricket Field at Stanton Village Club in the village of Stanton, UK, in the Cotswolds.
Southerner who grew up on SEC football living in Seattle area now....Husky Stadium is absolutely worth a visit and might be my favorite environment in all of CFB. Especially if you get a Sailgaiting package booked to pregame!
Just moved here and so glad I read this comment because now I absolutely will be trying out sailgating in the fall… might be the only way possible to convince me there’s better tailgating than my Hokies
You won’t be disappointed. A truly unique CFB experience. But beware, you should be booking your charter now or finding a boat some other way. There are some public cruises with Argossy I think. But tickets sell fast.
This might mean an unfollow
The Dawg Pound.
Great list. I’d add @UConnHuskies @UConnMBB Gampel
Should be 24 spots higher! 😉
this is why we need to go this fall
you made the list lol
Is Fromhold Field (CA) the best to play at in all of high school baseball? ⚾️👀 (Via @BaseballBros )
This pic DOES NOT do Husky stadium justice
Show the one when Nebraska played a home game there
I was at that game. Nebraska fans were really fun to tailgate with. We introduced a lot of them to Dizzy Bat in the Husky Stadium parking lot.
That’s Alaska Airlines Stadium! :) @UW @UW_Football @AlaskaAir
Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium, the @GreatestSetting in cfb.
Go Huskies! Tbh I think this one should be 10 and the Rose Bowl should be 25
(No comment)
(No comment)
Cc @PlayerProMorgan husky stadium getting love, top 50 sports venue in the world 👀
Should have included the ball field at PV :). Or Stadium HS football field; it’s absolutely stunning.
WOOF!! It’s a gem 💎
You got to travel by air to the stadium?
Banzai Pipeline
Hvilken stadion er dette, @4rusle ?
Før jeg sjekker Google vil jeg si at det er navnebroren til ditt hjemsted, Eiði.
Etter Google-søket kan jeg bekrefte det. Dette er gamlebanen til EB (Eiðis Bóltfelag). Den nye ligger et par kraftige steinkast inn mot sentrum. Den gamle perlen brukes som campingplass 😥 EB er halvparten av elitelaget EB/Streymur. De bruker banen til Streymur, við Margír.
Ja, så på Google Maps at det stod en del campingbiler på banen. Ser også ut til å være en værhard plassering av banen selv Holy Ground ville vært imponert av.
Spillestilen er også ganske lik. Største forskjellen er at EB/Streymur har satset mye ungt de siste årene.
Looks like a Peter McKinnon shirt
Unfortuanately no football here anymore 🙄
"Football" not soccer
My favorite city in Europe!!
I’ve been to this one. Always baffled by this design 😆 🇭🇷
Amazing thread! The basketball court in Dubrovnik is in fact amazing 👀I took this during my last visit
My husband and I were delighted to spot that court when we visited too!
Such a nice surprise as you round the corner on the wall 😍
AYO @DanDaRocha we saw this one!!
Glad to see that basketball court make the list. It is super cool. And wildly unexpected as you walk the walls of Dubrovnik.
am no expert, but that looks off a little
You can only do half court. Making it regulation would have involved messing up an UNESCO site. Not that the Serbs didn’t try in 92.
I was going to send you this one! Amazing thread btw
My then almost 16 year old grabbing the rim in Dubrovnik.
I'm training my knees, so hopefully we can play a little bit in summer again 😁
Played here. Such a good spot
I stayed in a place right by this when I went to Dubrovnik
who’s turn to get the ball? 🏊🏻
FFS it’s a football pitch. It is not an anything field
Depends where you are from lol
I was there its a muslim village
Wouldn’t the ball go into the water like 200 times a game?
Isn’t that a handball field?
“Damn it Johnny you kicked the ball into the water again.” “Nah it’s okay I’ll get it.”
You be out of balls in five minutes here though it is beautiful
This pic looks completely fake to me.
GO NAVY! BEAT ARMY!!
Not this year!!! 😂
Nothing better on a crisp Fall Saturday afternoon…
I've been there many times. Fantastic setting.
not a bad spot to play!
Look better when your playing on it
this is really gorgeous And a great view.
Yes, it is. Beat Navy.
Sitting atop this field as a boy was when I learned about the speed of sound, as we all saw the cannon smoke before hearing the boom from across the river.
Football pitch
Kandima, Maldives is dope too. Was lucky enough to visit before the pandemic.
blink and it's gonna be underwater
What's the stadium next to it?
Maybe this view, but in front of it and inside, it is not very good looking…
The Parc is great....you just have to look out for the Boulogne Boys apres le match 😀😀!!!
One of the best F1 races
I feel like the pool in Monaco would be better
Homie has the crown jewel of all of Motorsport and you want to replace it for the pool next door
Coming from a Haas fan. Monaco is the worst race all year.
I feel like that big yacht now belongs to the US government
Belongs to Alisher Usmanov, sanctioned in many countries. German government was rumoured to have seized it but has not (yet). Sitting in Hamburg right now.
I have been to this one
I think that large yacht is the Russian oligarch’s yacht that was just seized …. 😳
There for 2016 GP, going again in May 🏎🏎
If you can’t see the whole track how would you know if someone cheated. I wouldn’t trust anyone on that track
Did they do the sneaky injections in the trees?
I’ve ran on that track back in high school with my cross team. Beautiful track and even more beautiful campus
My sister was on this pitch!
(No comment)
I’ve noticed that every one of these have like 0 parking
Omg god it’s football, not soccer. What possible logic is used when a game where people run with the ball in the arms for 59 mins and is maybe kicked ten times in an entire game.. Called football.. a joke lol
Monument Valley Utah
This is 🔥
Should have just said all the sports venues at BYU and the surrounding areas.
Point Loma Nazarene University, San Diego
Awesome venue. Can’t get much better than that!
Why is BYU's baseball field so special?
The view of the mountains. We get used to them living here. People go wild about them outside of the west.
Whistler HS, Howe Sound HS and Quest University in the Sea to Sky Corridor in B.C., Canada all have fields that could make this list.
All Eagle Lawn Tennis Club in Eagle, Idaho?
The Marriott Center & LaVell Edwards Stadium as well Joe!
Utah Valley University has a beautiful backdrop as well.
Colorado School of Mines has a similar one twitter.com/minesfootball/…
717 days unbeaten at beautiful Marv Kay Stadium #HelluvaAdvantage ⚒⚒
Took this photo of Miller Park at BYU's home-opener last week. Sensational scenery and ballpark.
It is a football pitch not a soccer field - what even is that? Nice photo/site though
Metoval Field Queens NYC
Is that a soccer field for ants?
Most likely a basketball court converted for soccer practice and small games
You said beautiful
This one is actually bad, but the rest of the thread is amazing.
Thanks for this Joe
This one’s a weird addition— there is no view. It’s like any other rooftop pitch around the city.
Love the mural with Maradona, Cruyff, and Best.
You and Trev should have a kick about on here.
geez, that tiny-ass rooftop 🤣🤣🤣
This place is amazing and you’re right in Chinatown - the best
Is this by the Kahala?
Been there. So beautiful
we should go play some hoops here!
About five minutes from where I grew up
I’ve been planning on it! Hopefully one of these days soon!
Vallymount GAA, Co. Wicklow not bad either.
(No comment)
deserves a mention
That's my image Joe, would you mind tagging my Twitter page on the post please?
Sure did ! 25 mins drive from my house
Good Spot Andrew. A little south of us Bhoy 💚💚
Found the one that doesn’t fit
🐸🐸🐸🏆
Man tried to fit the rose bowl into this 😂😂
Maybe the most beatiful football field
No one who has been to the rose bowl would agree with this.
Jealous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🤢
Did you say the Rose Bowl
This one it’s not pretty at all
Number 10 on the “most beautiful” list?
this thing is not like the others. historical, yes. beautiful , eh
I think you meant @BrooksideGC Joe....🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
The Rose Bowl has more seating, but Lavell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Ut has a lot more beauty. Nestled right up to the mountains.
As well as the baseball field Miller Park
Where I used to live. Happy (and a bit surprised) it made the list!
Why is this in the thread?
How horror movies start
You can delete this one… nothing “beautiful “ in Russia at the moment
Would you have excluded US venues during the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan?
I don’t play soccer, but I would here.
Part of me wants to say tear it up because it’s in Russia… 🤷‍♂️, but sports are one the few things that still cross over and unite us all.
Been here, very cool spot
Way preferred the pool. Tough membership entry aswell
Bondi Icebergs pool has been ‘converted’ a couple of times as part of different promotions. Here’s the tennis version
So will it convert back into a pool?
Yes. Pretty sure it’s already back to being a pool. Bondi Icebergs is a swimming club. It’s a sea water pool.
Every single time they do it, it is a travesty. They should all be forced to swim there three weekends a month each winter five years as penance
Give it about five years and it will permanently be a pool lol
Blacktop court in Australia? The pool boutta get refilled from the homies’ sweat
This conversion is a damn shame
It was done for a promotion just before the NBA playoffs last year, so it was late autumn going into winter. It has been converted back since.
They’d just throw that up for whatever gimmick and then dismantle. 99.99999999% of the time it’s a pool. It wouldn’t be that hard to put in a court, they empty the pool once a week for cleaning…
The ocean is going into it wtf
What a travesty that it was converted.
People who did this should face the court.
Why is it black
How’s does the water not go on to the court
Really cool place :)
damn this is hideous
Not as much a #basketball fan as I was in 1990s but digging the colorful court in Paris, France.
The Court in La Perla viejo San Juan are definitely better than this
Meh. I rather go to Rucker
Where is this b-ball court? Which arrondissement? Thanks
Yeah, I have been to this one... 😎 @vakaviti
Greece is the best.
They still dump the trash straight off the donkey into the sea. Used to always have globs of oil in the water from the flushed out tanks of the oil tankers. You should visit Hydra, David. Not too far from Paris.
Wow, I’ve went to Hydra over 5 years ago. I didn’t know about this. ⚽️
aesthetic-wise i feel like this is a lot better from a view like this than up close
You can watch the game from your balcony
Been there, a gem of a town to visit.
Pebble is number1
I think this was in the movie 50 First Dates.
Cannot wait to play here
There's some tricky layups there.
Definitely slicing it off the cliff.
Cypress point is what should’ve been on the list
guarantee there will still be some crazy mfer who isnt willing to take the penalty for a lost ball, and goes looking for his ball on the cliffs.
Played Pebble in August- extreme traffic, very roughed up course. Beautiful views, for sure, but your local country club has better greens.
17th hole at Dazante Bay Golf Resort in Loreto (Baja México)
Not that secret but we love pebble
$800 to tie your shoes
where’s my drive going then? 😂
It’s beautiful😍
I've had the pleasure of playing this course once, glorious🥰
You spelled basketball wrong Joe!
I’ve visited the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute and had no idea this was behind it.
I found this accidentally when walking around!
I feel like this warms the heart of @_futbolprof
Yes indeed, Jerry! 🙏
I think there was a scene of House of Gucci filmed here
I'll be impressed if this field is level.
It’s not a soccer field. It’s a handball field. By the way, great photo. 👍🏻
That’s not a soccer field.
Instituto Marinelli Fonte
This where Venezia practices ?
Friday night football
How many balls get lost up there 😄
It’s actually a helipad on Burj Al Arab hotel
I swear I've played Wii sports resort fighting on here
Unless this was for a special event this is fake… this is the helipad, which their guests would never sacrifice for the ability to play tennis in 50’ Celsius.
I think it's pretty clear it was a one time thing.
I play tennis 5 days a week. There is ZERO chance, if given the opportunity, that I would play on that court.
this looks tight but hell nah
Yeah I was thinking the same haha. Can’t run for all the balls…
Shit place to be a ball boy that 😂😂
go get em jimmy
Unedited Version
That’s a super nope. Terrifying.
I don’t know about this thennis court bro, I may chase a ball into a death sentence
Holy Fuck! That's more terrifying than amusing mate
Number 3 was a made up prop for a photo shoot. Disappointed
They didn't play any matches on it and they made the court itself shorter, but this is real. Federer and Agassi traded shots to film the commercial.
Yeah, I know
Gonna get trained up and then I’ll meet you here @ByNateTaylor
How can you even play on this? 1, you have wond. 2, you'd get dizzy being up so high! 3, ya better not hit the ball out of bounds and damage someone's Ferrari!
How many balls end up hurtling to the ocean?! That is crazy cool though.
I would never be able to be comfortable enough to play there.
Not sure I want to play on the hotel
Wonder if Venus and Sarena Williams blessed this court?
When you dive for a forehand smash and end up in the sea
This look like tht one spot from dragon ball z , picalo hometown or sum
This was a temporary set up for a marketing campaign years ago. It's normal purpose is a helipad, so should it be inadmissible...? 🤷🏼
This looks like a really bad idea
Serve & volley only, baseline play looks a challenge.
Did they convert it from helipad?
As if we needed another excuse to go to Dubai @michellewes10. But alas, here we are. haha!
You imagine just swimming next to the Burj Al Arab and a tennis ball comes rocketing out of the sky.
Not everything is for everybody. One would have to take up a different sport.
What is the praxis of this @ClubLeftTennis?
everyone on the forbes billionaires list should be placed in a big tournament bracket and play each other to the death on this platform.
Imagine your Ball falls off the field lmao
i mean i would assume that would happen all the time
Better take a lot of extra tennis balls
What a perfect place!
That is pretty awesome
Yessir. Have been here many times.
We used to put a keg in the back of a pickup and park in that gravel spot in the outfield. We’d be right next to the opposing dougout which they either loved or hated. Good memories at this one.
that’s your school?
Apps got a pair of top 50 fields
Imagine how many baseballs are sitting intm the forest around that diamond.
This is what my heaven looks like 🥲
That's hysterical. Have you ever actually been there?🤣
That’s an amazing pic
This and the BYU field have got to be the two best baseball fields
Wow! Is it really a worthy #2 @JBabs15?
But it only looks that way out of baseball season lol
How many trees were cut so that a handful of players can play a game on a beautiful venue?
It's Boone. Ain't a spot to put a baseball field without cutting down trees

Only a joker would have made you the jury 🤦‍♂️
This is beautiful! But I can see @MoveTheSticks and @BuckyBrooks having fun with this ranking 😂
y’all get any swings in?
😂😂😂😂
LOVE this one!!!!
Fam it doesn’t look like this…this is an edited photo and looks nothing like this in person.
What happens when you hit a home run from Beaver Field?
I went to school here for a year! It is usually not nearly this beautiful because it fucking rains almost every single god damn day, it’s always foggy as shit, and the leaves are only that color for like 3 seconds total
any questions Jack?
So gonna go out on a limb here and say app doesn’t play their season when the trees look like that.
We used the club house year round to play ping pong!!
This is amazing
Gwadar cricket stadium in Pakistan. Located at the middle fo the mountains.
It’s outdoor??
Why is this one not on the list?
I actually really like that one
Because it is ugly
Because it’s in China, not really politically correct to list it here
Or because this location is a terrible place to hold sporting events🤷
It's called a joke buddy
Russia made the list
🤣🤣🤣🤣 what
He posted a picture of Russia. Political correct?
This was an appropriate end to those beautiful places.
They misspelled Springfield.
🤣🤣🤣💀
Because it's ugly?
Can’t tell if this is sarcastic
Bucket list would be to get to all of them. Thanks for putting this together - super cool to see !
How about tennis courts at ITHF?
thought you'd appreciate this thread :)

scrolling to see this.
Thats table mountain in the background where Gods dine.
I was going to add this if no else had yet. Can't wait for it to open up to fans again!!
Castle Corner,Table mountain/Table cloth😍😍🤩🤩🤩
Been there, place itself is magical but stadium there is nothing special.
Nuevo Leon, Mexico (Stadium of Monterrey. Team in the Liga MX)
Great thread,Joe!

Sligo Creek Muni
I think I have enough btc to go see them all one day
vestmannaeyjar, Iceland
I just scrolled all the way down to see if Dharmshala has made to this list or not 😄
The inside of Allen Fieldhouse.
Always my favorite tweet thread. Just wait till we get that Sturgeon Bay stadium built @EricNutty4 @mlburmesch2
The most beautiful pitch in the most beautiful place… pitch side on the peninsula
Don't know how these missed top 50
Lookz like you guys don't know about gwadar cricket stadium
Before I looked through the pictures I thought of the football field in fintra Donegal where we walk, not thinking it would be in it.. But there it was.. 👍
Great list! If you want to add an addendum, here is my local golf course, Cruit Island, an island off the northwest coast of Ireland.
📍Cruit Island Golf Club, Kincasslagh, Donegal. If you get a chance during Summer 2021 take a trip to Cruit Island on the west coast of Donegal. For golfers and non golfers alike, the incredible coastline is a sight to see! This is the signature 6th hole at the course. ⛳️🏌🏻‍♂️
(No comment)
Oh my gosh… 😅
Great shout Daniel- The Gorge is class. Played on 2 of the list and seen the pitch in Hvar!
Great thread! 😳
Absolutely amazing
Singapore has a beautiful soccer pitch by the waterfront as well. I remember seeing it being played on and his thinking that's the coolest sports field I'd ever seen.
How many balls are swimming in Norwegian sea? 😂
dominated by Football, as you'd expect. You missed a few beautiful ones but overall a good list
Nice, they can't loose the ball this way it just rolls back down the hill
1. CompuBox Park on Long Island, New York
Where is the Nassau Coliseum on Long Island?????
Amazing venues...and not a single in AFRICA!
Waafrika watapiga balls zote kwa maji
Real devolution at work..

Pls post some awesome African venues so we can admire them as well! ty
Kamariny Stadium (though I have no rights to the pix)
Looks like a red dirt pile. Boooooring
Hurumia CS bana 🤣
Kenyans and Vayolens wueeeh 🤣😂
Maybe migingo can be converted
With people like you that vote with your stomach we shall NEVER see such in Africa
I mean first picture not as good. This one is obviously way better than a tennis court in Iowa.
Bro stop and just admire the pics. Shit.
Maldives is Africa
Maldives is not Africa, check your Geography
Maldives in Asia
The cricket stadium in Rwanda should have made the list.
Here you go. It won a whole bunch of international architecture awards - the pavilion is designed to represent both the path of a bouncing cricket ball and traditional Rwandan huts.
Yeah I agree. This is stunning. Some of the options that are given here are very meh. This is gorgeous
you like good cricket stuff. This is one of the prettiest
Soccer field in Cape Town maybe
As should have Newlands Cricket ground in Capetown
…or Cape Town Stadium.
Newlands and Nelson Mandela Bay stadium would also be contenders.
Just thinking of that. What a sight!
The Newlands is easily the most beautiful cricket stadium
I've been to Newlands. It is beautiful. But I've also been to Pukekura Park, and I'd have to side with Richie Benaud, who felt that Pukekura Park was the most beautiful cricket stadium in the world. But it is close.
I have only seen Newlands on TV, including the drone shots. And it looks gorgeous. I did not even know Pukekara existed! Thanks for the info!
Michael, we also missing this:
Sure. And I'd argue that Cobham Oval in Whangarei is another amazing ground. But neither of them are in Africa.
Yea, I was just mentioning grounds in general.
Because they are none. The only “unique” venues are mud fields. Very little (or no) beauty in Africa.
Vipingo ridge would have been a great add on
There are so many majestic locations that would make perfects spots. That european soccer player from a while back had a solid idea.
8. The Bondi Icebergs pool in Australia — it was also converted to a basketball court last year.
Hard to believe Newlands cricket pitch under table mountain in Cape Town didn’t make the list
Seems like a big miss.
But we fundraise for beautiful mosques and not even irrigation or good classrooms. You dig?
Mfer please
Come on! How did this not make it? Mxm
Great answer and a great race!
Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town would also be on my list. Brewery and Table Mountain what more could you want!
Funny that 🤷‍♂️
great job thank you for sharing some amazing images
Stadium High School. Tacoma, WA
Not on the list but Pac Bell in San Francisco has some pretty cool views.
OH MY FREAKING GOSH 😭😭😭

Stunning. Thank you.
Queenstown cricket stadium New Zealand.
University of Montana FB stadium
Wow Thanks for sharing
Golf course tara iti new zeland . Look it up
Check out this thread @Jordout
Pretty fucked how crazy these can get
Love these. Lucky enough to have been to 2! Pasadena Rose Bowl and Monaco Grand Prix Circuit
Might have said this before, but still looking forward wingsuiting over that scenery, parachuting down to that field. Some day ✌️
Rape Stadium in Norway
Not complete without South Lake Tahoe high school football field.
Well… north side ain’t bad either.
I love how a high school rivalry made it to this! This is why I Twitter! Both great btw!
BC Place in Vancouver, Canada
To cut through that beautiful earth for the Norwegian one seems like a travesty actually
(No comment)
Wow all 50 of these are gonna be breathtaking
Another angle (took the pic Juli-17). Beautiful place 😍
(No comment)
Cape Town Stadium 🤷🏼‍♂️
Great list, but you're missing Steele Stadium. Well manicured lawn and pool, plus unique field dimensions with that short porch in straightaway center. So perfect, it doesn't even look real.
I saw Pablo Sanchez hit for the cycle at this stadium… great venue
I hope you didn’t throw away the ticket to the game. Probably worth $100k+ at auction if in good condition.
Was probably the home run cycle, all to straightaway center. 😄
Austin, if there is ever a Backyard Baseball alumni game, I’d vote for you to do the play-by-play commentating.
elite reference
This cricket ground in Gwadar, Pakistan surely can be included in your list.
Except it is in Pakistan🤷🏻‍♂️
Chris lives in rural Montana and only watches Fox News
People all over the world, wish they lived in the Middle East👎🏼
No, I wish I lived in rural Montana - it’s beautiful out there. The only think I’d do different is to be open to being educated, not be close minded and be open to opinions other than of Fox News
This one is incredible! 😍
Here’s another image of the cricket ground in Gwadar Pakistan.
Is this real grass or artificial?
Tropicana Field St. Petersburg, Florida USA
😂😂😂😂
The worst baseball stadium ever..like going to a baseball game at a giant Sam's Club
I'm afraid to ask, what could be even more beautiful than this venue🙌
Carmelo Anthony basketball court in San Juan Puerto Rico
I’d be dizzy by the time I dribbled to half court 🤣
That hurts my eyes
Was just looking for my picture of this one - so cool!
Keppa can't play on this pitch
Views of the Blue Ridge just after sunset at Williams Stadium are on point
I'm so glad this is the first reply to this thread I saw
Don’t forget the bigotry!!
Carmelo Anthony had this court built in San Juan, PR
Stadium High School, Tacoma Washington
10 things I hate about you?
That was my first thought too
Haha they named the high school after the stadium.
That's an amazing view
Whoa this is awesome 👌
Great list. I’ve been to 10 of these places. Definitely want to make it to the rest of them.
So many amazing spots
you want to team up and hit all of these in 100 days? 😂😂😂😂
You include PNC but not Camden Yards at sunset?
camden yards is a shithole looks like
You’re right. PNC wishes it was half the park Camden Yards is
50 most beautiful sports venue? Come on man
Yeah, easily. Arguably the best park in baseball. Team might be trash, but the yard is still class.
great place to take in a game. Better than the Nationals stadium which lacks any kind of character
Did you look at the other 50 sports venues. Pebble Beach, Mountain Views, tucked into a hidden valley somewhere. And your hitting me with downtown Baltimore without a view of the harbor?
You can thank Camden Yards for PNC Park. If Baltimore doesn’t build Camden yards you’re watching the Pirates from a less than stellar renovated Three Rivers.
Can definitely thank Camden Yards for most new stadiums. Just don't thank it for a WS opportunity 😆
Uh yeah your point?
It was even better before the Hilton went up
With respect, I’ve been to both, find both beautiful, but PNC is the cream of the crop.
Lol... not even on same level as PNC Park.
Oriole Park at Camden Yards is a beautiful ballpark but the area is t great. PNC has the location right in addition to the park. That’s the difference. It’s def still the OG for the Retro revival
This one is not ever close. Please sit down. (Reds fan)
What? Reds Fan? You do know where Camden Yards is, don't you?
I've been to both. Camden is great, but PNC is probably top-2 in MLB.
You been to any?
Been to Parc des Princes and Monaco, some very cool places. You?
No.3 Not the actual court but the hotel though
Tough job being a ball boy at that place
Squash court in front of the Pyramids
50 random photos of sports venues I do not own the rights to use
I will never not share threads like this one
Good list, but missing these two: 1. Cape Town Stadium, South Africa 2. Oracle Stadium, San Francisco, USA
Amazing! Thank you for adding this to the list. Visiting Oracle Stadium next month 🙌🏽
Amazing, you will love it!! Make sure you go for a walk along the Bay side open area 🤩 🌁
Was thinking the same thing. Hard to beat Cape Town Stadium.
Gotta give some love to Witter Field and the Alaskan Rugby Grounds too.
Good list, but #VodafonePark, home of the @Besiktas Black Eagles, should clearly be considered a top 10 most beautiful sports venue.
Forgot the GOAT my guy.
These look like prime NFT real estate 👀
Not bad our soccer field in La Losa, Segovia (Spain) @Elfutbolmodsto @cdsierramm
De los mejores hilos

Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 has some stunning cricket grounds too!
You forgot basketball court at Rowland Park in Rowland Heights, CA. #rowlandraiders #rowlandhts
You’re missing Newlands cricket ground, Cape Town.
Is the hot water on yet?
Looks like Canadian tire center outside of Ottawa
Hey hey hey. It’s actually IN the City of Ottawa, not outside.
Should still be Kanata
Kanata is not a city. It’s an area within Ottawa.
Kanata was its own city until amalgamation in 2001
CTC Ottawa. The worst located stadium you could imagine. Soulless.
It's the pride of Ottawa Carleton, Eastern Ontario's largest parking lot
Looks like a state fairgrounds
This would be #988 on this list
This is ugly af
It’s just a big car park? 😂
Looks like a church 💀
rich people church
Where else can you shop multiple dealers for a car, fill up on snacks at a gas station, AND watch a hockey game all in the same day!? This should be #1
Did they finally close the "Hot Topic" inside?
beautiful concrete
How you gonna miss Folsom 😯
Amazing. Great work Joe. You need a couple more baseball stadiums though. Glad to see PNC in the list but Oracle and Petco deserve a nod too.
Bologhine stadium, Algiers 😉
Fiserv Forum. Located in Milwaukee, WI
Not exactly sports but this track and field stadium at 11k feet is well above some of them on the list
where is it and 11k feet desert?
You Americans need explanation for everything.!!
Funny enough, there is a desert 11K feet above sea level in the United States
Great Basin -California/ Nevada / Utah
lmao....angry much?
Dude just asked a simple question, haha
You don’t know do you?
Its in ladakh india…do visit..it’s beautiful place..you will amazing time
Ayo I think track n field is in fact a sport my guy
Okay Dick jone jr. You always have to dot the I and cross the T don't you !!sorry dicky
This can’t be a real person
It might even be several of them
Nice but where is it? 🤨🧐🤔
A lot of Croatia there, let me know if you're visiting 🤗
Breathtaking! Just wow!
Cool thread. Notable honorable mention should include Folsom Field in Boulder CO. Also many beautiful horse tracks around the globe!

Nou Camp. Barcelona (Catalunya - Spain)
Don’t forget Oracle Park in SF
T mobile park in Seattle
Especially right as the sun is setting on a summer evening-go up the 300 level on the left field side and fight for position to get the sunset over Alki.
The fact Augusta National Golf Club is not on here blows my mind…
And pebble isn't even the best on that peninsula, right?
7th at Pebble is pretty singular
Ever see it 2 weeks before the Masters?
Mary star high school in LA
Where is Notre Dame Stadium?
In Indiana….
Teodoro Mariscal Baseball Stadium in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, México.
What about cricket stadiums? There are some incredible ones out there. Cape Town?
I have one! World's highest polo ground (Shandur Polo Ground - Gilgit, Pakistan)
Beautiful picture
Not mine, I googled it. But yeah, the place is very pretty.
Might need to add old head golf links in Ireland
Soccer field at 11,000 ft - Ladakh, India
Imagining this, but then also snowboarding and 🏄🏼‍♀️ surfing within 1 hour drive!🤩
Memorial Stadium @UCBerkeley
You should add Cape Town,Adelaide,Canberra, Hobart,Lords,Christchurch,Queenstown,Mount Maunganui,Chepauk,Wankhede,Galle,Trinidad, St.Lucia,Bernabeu,Camp nou,Allianz,Old Trafford,San Siro,Soccer city,Maracana, Wembley, etc,...
Atlast somebody said about Maracana man..🥳🔥
I need to go here
Rooftop soccer field next to the world’s busiest crosswalk in Tokyo, Japan.
There is a Gyoza no Osho just around the corner from there.
Feels like where they shot Tokyo Drift
Exact same spot. Shibuya in Tokyo.
They got some crazy places like this all pver japan but it has been 15 years since i last was there i want to go again
Did they demolished the building beside it?
Hotel Excel Shibuya I think? I used to watch some games from there.
We missed a trick not trying to play on there
So how do you play here?? Want to go play there so bad
awesome picture did not know that exist

Fort William FC, Scotland

I wonder if @LevisStadium will make the list? 🤔. I’m riffing fyi, before people start @ me 😂
inspiration for our trip 🌍
Closest to any I’ve been is seeing PSG’s stadium twice from the Peripherique and then releasing we’d missied our turning twice! Also walked alongside that stretch of water in Venice but didn’t realise there was a pitch on the other side of the wall!
nice post + cape town stadium & sea point pavilion
How Cape Town escaped his list (great list that it is!)is beyond me

I just imagined the ball kicked so high it goes out of the pitch and into the water. That could easily amount to a red card or something 🙄😂
Where are the stands?

Beautiful from a helicopter sure.
course County Clare, Ireland 🐎🇮🇪
Happy Valley racecourse, Hong Kong
Blue Wahoos Stadium, baby.
Love this ball park! Even on the hottest days always a nice breeze off the bay.
Wow. Awesome. I’m a native to 1 so I’m biased on that front. But imho if put 40 a LOT higher
Wow just goes to show there's still so much beauty everywhere!
Anyone post Point Loma Baseball yet?
This was distracting for me, lol. Beautiful place to watch baseball.
Or Pepperdine in Malibu?
How have you not included the home of English football. The Select Car Leasing Stadium just off junction 11 of the M4 on the outskirts of Reading.
Isn't it wonderful
Don’t be daft, everyone knows that the home of English football is situated at the end of a Buckinghamshire industrial estate
Point Loma Nazarene - San Diego
No Indianapolis Motor Speedway or Bristol?
Fenway not being top 10 is almost criminal.

Lol. You have no idea. I went there and my house in the background.

good suggestions dawn
The Bobcats out of Bozeman has beautiful mountains in the background as well.
Is it Griz/Cat or Cat/Griz?
I’ve never seen the Griz in person. Couldn’t make a proper judgement.
Cat/Griz. No one says Navy/Army
Folsom Field, Boulder, CO

I don't see Madison Square Garden on this list 🤔
Include Pebble but no Kauri Cliffs, Cape Kidnappers, Cypress Point, Tara Iti, etc? Those 4 alone are better than Pebble. Pebble isn’t even the best on 17 mile drive…
The Mecca of College Basketball (Lawrence, KS)
Key word “beautiful”
It’s in Kansas
That’s shite. Looks like a library.
The Mecca of college bball is the Palestra in Philadelphia

Great thread. I’m going to argue that you missed one, though: The All-England Club.
Richmond County Bank Ballpark, view of NYC in the background
Truman Sports Complex (Kansas City, MO)
Lol. This is a attempt at a joke right?
Nah dude. Look at the beauty of the parking lot
I’m a Chiefs and Royals fan myself, and those are nice stadiums, but the acres of surrounding parking lots can’t compare with the breathtaking surroundings of the stadiums on this list. The list seems to be more about surrounding scenery than the stadiums themselves.
Lmfao! Go away homer
Beautiful parking lots.
Kansas City
I think you’ve misunderstood the category.
Was it not "stadiums of teams I like located in mediocre environs"?
Nope...generic and the views outside of the venue is concrete/gravel jungle
Lol you gotta be kidding
Two stadiums in the middle of a gigantic parking lot? Not making this list.
Gross. Way off base. And I have attended several royals games
This is not beautiful. This is a giant parking lot.
Brockton Oval, Stanley Park in Downtown Vancouver, BC
I knew there had to be something from BC.
It’s even better looking back up to the snow capped peaks when the cruise ships come past!
Watched a cracking game of Cricket 🏏 there in 2015 from the Pavillon Balcony
I wish I had an elevated pic of that from behind that clubhouse with the snow capped mountains and north shore. In terms of rugby/cricket pitches that has to be in the top 10 worldwide. It's a treat to play against @VanRowClub1886.

this is a great thread

Haha I showed this to Sara earlier. Some of them are so crazy
this thread is incredible
Junge Pavilion Ice Rink, Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania
This isn’t top 50, but I love this course in Springville, UT.

On the Banks of Tennessee River sets a beautiful place I know of
Sanitation convention?
….At least it’s not named after a grocery store, right?
You should know it well you lost there for almost 30 years straight🥴
Imagine your field named after a grocery store?
Idk bro I can buy beer and steak at a grocery store
Now justify your basketball arena because of your lack of tradition like you did football.
Sits* a beautiful place.
That place is old and a dump.

Bamburgh cricket club pitch 👏🏻

Just down the road Warkworth castle. Went to see my son play here for the country when he was a junior
This is beautiful
This is the view of the castle from the other side 🤯 It’s right on the beach
Gorgeous! 🌈💗
Oh wow this is possibly the best compilation of sports venues I have ever seen. Amazing!
Great list. A few more I would mention: Queenstown Event Centre in New Zealand Arnos Vale Cricket Oval in Saint Vincent And for my money, the nicest view in a US stadium - Folsom Field at the University of Colorado
Honorable mention: The greens at the Washington Monument *photograph is not mine
Use a picture that isn't photoshopped to death, dude. It's still beautiful.
Surprised Oracle Park didn't make it.
Cathy Parker Field in Utqiagvik, AK. Right alongside the Arctic Ocean
I think you missed one:
missed Nottingham field
I’m sure it was 51. Just missed the cut haha
Beautiful ❤️
Love these but the one missing is the high school athletic complex built on top of the Lincoln Tunnel heading into Times Square

Couldn’t get the back yard but this should be on the list.
The front yard also saw its share of memorable basketball and wiffle ball games. Left side of the driveway made a decent bmx track too after watching RAD.
could imagine some good street hockey in that driveway.
We are Florida kids. No street hockey back in our day.

That one in Norway is nutty. I’ll even watch soccer there
That that looks unbelievable

Aye I work here 😭 it don’t compare at all

This is a dope thread
Torrey Pines Golf Course, La Jolla, CA. Spot the paragliders.
Only got thru about 20 but Oh Em Gee...absolutely beautiful. I cant take it...I need to go to these places Now!!! I dont even care too much about soccer outside of the world cup but HEY ZEUS!!! I wanna go to Norway!!! Might even pick up golf, tennis to enjoy some of these venues!
Not sure the stadium name,but Pepperdine's baseball field overlooking the Malibu coast is unreal
Eddy D. Field and it is a beautiful setting to catch a game!

By "beautiful" you mean according to people flying in an airplane and viewing with a filter?
Yeah, I thought the same thing as you. But still beautiful!

This look so beautiful, looks like a starwars planet lol
Field of Dreams !!! Iowa ❤️
Got to add: The Cove Bobcat Stadium. Montana St Football Wimbledon Augusta National
Absolutely insane the cove didn’t even make the list. A top 10 venue on my list for sure
Surprised not to see a horse track
Soccer area near Olanchito, Honduras.
This would be better looking without a stadium.
Okay fine but the fact that every single one of these aren’t golf courses defeats the list entirely.
