Ranking the Professional Stadiums of New England

by Paul Baker - Jul 21, 2014 2:24 PM EDT

When you think about New England, you think tradition, and you think history. The same goes for New England's stadiums. Some of the oldest and most famous sporting venues in the country are located within the borders of New England's six states. Everyone knows about Fenway Park, the oldest ballpark in the major leagues. Many people recall fondly the ancient home of the Bruins and Celtics, the original Boston Garden. But there are historic venues all over New England. Centennial Park in Burlington, Vermont has been in use for close to a century, and is one of the finest small ballparks in the country. McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, Rhode Island opened in 1942 and has been affiliated with the parent Boston Red Sox for over 40 years. Harvard Stadium in Boston predates modern football. In fact, Harvard's small dimensions helped shape the modern football rule book and led to the adaptation of the forward pass. The Exposition Center in Portland, Maine is the second oldest arena still in operation in the nation (big surprise, the oldest arena still in use is in Boston). New England's stadiums are not just antiques, but include some of the most revered sporting venues in the country. We have visited every professional sporting venue in the six New England states, and have ranked them from #1 to #24 according to our FANFARE rating system. Without further ado, we present our rankings of every New England professional sporting venue.
