All-seater stadia in BritainEdit

I've expanded this to show the early all-seater grounds, as best I can decipher from the Inglis book. He does contradict himself, calling Pittodrie the first all-seater ground at one point, but I think the chronology is clear (and it's how I remember it, although my memory is not really a valid source). Any further knowledge or input would be most welcome. Watty1962 04:35, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Could this be clarified?Edit

Regarding usage of stadia with standing areas, the article says:

"...temporary seats are installed ... or the standing areas must be converted to seating (as is the case with several of the larger stadiums in Germany, some of which were used in an all-seater configuration for the 2006 FIFA World Cup)"

On first reading I thought the second part ("must be converted to seating") meant permanently, but the use of the word "configuration" in the parentheses implies that the conversion of standing areas to seating is temporary (in other words that these areas may also be used in a standing configuration). If it's the case that standing and seating configurations may be alternated, what's the difference between that and installing temporary seating? Tonywalton Talk 10:25, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

Lansowne RoadEdit

"the standing areas are closed to spectators (as at Lansdowne Road, home to the Republic of Ireland national team, before its redevelopment"

This information is incorrect, I'm removing it. Seats were always added to the north and south terraces for competitive soccer internationals (giving the stadium a capacity of 36,000 as opposed to 49,000). Fionnsci (talk) 17:58, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Meadowbank Stadium ?Edit

All seated and completed in 1970 Meadowbank Stadium was the home of Meadowbank Thistle from 1974 until 1995

American BaseballEdit

The term "all-seater" was foreign to me, and I think may be foreign to American English speakers, or perhaps my vocabulary is inadequate. At any rate, I would venture to guess that all American baseball stadiums have standing room only tickets and areas; I have never been to a ballpark that doesn't have one and I've been a baseball fan for a long time. At the very least I can attest to Oriole Park at Campden Yards and the Cleveland Indian's Progressive Field have them; I've been there.

I reccommend the reference to baseball be stricken entirely.

Fenway Park is another place that has standing room.--Halmass (talk) 15:23, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
