Most Celebrated Sporting Venue In The World?

As you may have seen, John Gruber over on Daring Fireball referred to Yankee Stadium as “the most celebrated sporting venue in the world”. Immediately, I thought this was not the case and decided to correct him, informing him the most celebrated sporting venue in the world was in fact … oh, um what is it again?

A quick twitting got a few suggestions, like Madison Sq Gardens from @cimota and Old Trafford from @lbutlr, whereas Colin in my office put forward Brands Hatch and a few other footbally ones while I came up with The Colloseum, oddly enough, and the Indianapolis Raceway.

Needless to say, outside the US, there aren’t many, apart from maybe a few Japanese, that would choose Yankee Stadium.

Am I wrong? What are your suggestions for the most celebrated sporting venue in the world? Comments below, please.
