Welcome to the Sports facilities task force. Our goal is to expand and improve Wikipedia's coverage of the architectural structures and venues used by sporting events. This page and its subpages contain a forum for coordinating editors' efforts and creating a coherent style across these articles. If you would like to help, sign your name on the participants list below and check out the project talk page or list of requested tasks to see how you can help.

Structure[edit]

There should be an individual entry for each stadium, arena or other facility where sport (either at a professional or collegiate level) takes place.

At a minimum, an entry for a facility should include the following:

  • A completed {{Infobox Stadium}} or {{Infobox Venue}}
  • A paragraph stating what the facility is, where it is and what kinds of events it hosts (if it is an arena, include concerts where applicable). This paragraph should include the relevant transportation modes to arrive at the facility, such as mass transit and roadways.
  • Information about the organizations and events that make use of the facility.
  • A history of the facility, including:
    • The planning and construction
    • Name changes (including new or changing sponsors)
    • Famous moments (including any championship events)
    • Closure and demolition of the facility
  • Any external links to official web sites of the facility
  • Succession boxes for:
    • Present tenants
    • Present event hosting
    • Past tenants
    • Past event hosting
  • Relevant templates (collapsed)
