Madison Square Garden New York City. The Melbourne Cricket Ground. The National Stadium Beijing. Fenway Park Boston. Soccer City Johannesburg.

These are just a few of the marquee sports venues around the world. Some stadiums hold their historic charm, others marvels of architecture that will leave you in complete awe. They are center pieces of their respective cities and many would say a symbol of who they are and what they represent.

Growing up, visiting New York city was one of the most fascinating experiences.  MSG, home of the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers, has seen it’s fair share of marquee matchups, emotional nights, championships and has remained one of the most iconic stadiums of the world.  I still remember as a child doing a tour of the MSG, going through the locker rooms where greats such as Patrick Ewing and Wayne Gretzky have set foot.  There was this feeling of being in a special place and imagining the moments and experiences.

The stadium, in it’s current location, was built in 1968, quickly became one of the largest brands in the entertainment industry.  The stadium, outside of hosting the city’s two major professional teams, also has hosted and continues to host some of the most iconic superstars in the entertainment industry.

Stadium capacity: Maximum 20,789 (boxing), varies by sport.
