Spot the ball park: 26


22 April 2011

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’s only a game.

a) What’s the city, the venue and the occasion?

b) One thousand extra will be required, reportedly. But what?

c) What’s the relevance, in relation to these aspirational teams, of 54 and 43?

d) Which newspaper used its front page this morning to forecast ‘Carnage’? (Very helpful indeed, I’m sure).

The winner receives peace* in our time (*subject to a wait, possibly).


Any user can email an answer this teaser, by using this link, or by posting on Twitter to @sportingintel using the hashtag #STBP26. If you email, include the acronym ‘STBP’ in the subject box. Your comments will then be manually posted by an administrator.
