Spot the ball park: 17


28 May 2010

Can you identify the sporting arena? We take an aerial view of a topical ball park, football stadium, marathon course, golf course, Games venue, race track, iconic arena, athletic theatre (some literally theatres), pitch, park, stretch of water or wherever else sport takes place. And we ask you to identify it with the help of a cryptic clue… For older STBPs, click here



Clue: 私はサッカーの試合を観戦します。これは、日本国外発生

What’s the city? And the venue? And the occasion? Which relevant player, formerly in Britain, is “middle village”? And which governor used to be relevant here, but isn’t now?

Answers in the comment box, please. The winner receives the most delicately crispy courgette tempura known to man (if you can find the place that sells it, and pay yourself).
