Spot the ball park: 18


11 June 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: It ain’t 1775 and all that, but there is a grudge element.

a) What’s the city? b) And the venue? c) And the occasion? And in relation to the parties involved: d) what year did one of them come joint-third? e) who plays now in the 1-0 stadium? f) he was born in Birmingham, he’s a rocker, and he scored a famous one in a previous encounter – but who is he?

Answers in the comment box, please. The winner receives an invisible vuvuzela (to be collected from the imagination forthwith and blown for a month).
