I like to consider myself a sports tourist. A few years ago I started traveling to US Soccer games, and starting to catch the travel bug that I have expanded my sports tourism last year to include my alma mater's womens college volleyball team. Soccer and volleyball are by far my favorite sports. This coming year will be my biggest yet travel wise, one, possibly two soccer games, the second will be in Europe, and 6-7 volleyball games in the fall.

Aside from New Mexico State University home games, these are the arenas I have traveled to in the last couple of years.

Soccer:
Rose Bowl - Pasadena, CA
Columbus Crew stadium, Columbus, Ohio
Sporting Kansas City park, Kansas City, Kansas
Estadio Azteca, Mexico City

-Have a flight booked for Red Bull Arena, Harrison, New Jersey for end of this May.


Volleyball:
Stan Sheriff Center, Honolulu Hawaii
Grand Canyon Arena, Phoenix Arizona

I'd have to give it some thought, and I think it would be quite a long list. The only one I'm really tracking is baseball stadiums - 30 MLB and 20 minor league.

Racetracks would be the only other one I can easily itemize
Spa
Nurburgring
Buddh
Circuit Gilles Villeneuve
Indy
Mid-Ohio
Sebring
Daytona
Road America
Cleveland airport circuit
