Yankee Stadium is the Most Picturesque Stadium in the U.S.

With the advent of the cell phone, everyone in the world became a photographer, and with the launching of Instagram, everyone in the world could share their photographs with, well, everyone in the world. This has been a boon for sports franchises, as fans can be seen throughout every game snapping pics (selfies and otherwise) so that they can share them with their online followers.

 

Taking it a step further, the website onlinecasinos.com researched which venues in the U.S. were the most popular. In other words, which stadium was “doing it for the Gram” – analysts for the site ranked every sports stadium in the country based on the number of Instagram posts that featured each venue’s unique hashtag. 

 

Baseball and football venues dominated the top 10 rankings, with MLB showing its popularity also, with six ballparks claiming spots. This includes taking the top spot overall, namely Yankee Stadium with over 658,000 Instagram mentions in 2023. Arguably the most famous sporting venue in the world, Yankee Stadium is home (of course) to MLB’s New York Yankees, New York City FC of the MLS, and the annual college football Pinstripe Bowl.

 

“An interesting aspect of the research was that stadium capacity did not seem to affect how ‘Instagrammable’ sporting arenas across the U.S. were,” a spokesperson for onlinecasinos.com said of the findings. “This is shown by two of the top three having less than 50,000 seats, indicating that the historical significance of both the team and venue have more influence than stadium size.”

 

Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Wrigley Field in Chicago, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and Fenway Park in Boston rounded out the top five; Wrigley Field and the Rose Bowl both have the distinction of being registered National Historic Landmarks. Furthermore, Chicago and New York both placed two venues in the top 10.

“The fact that six baseball stadiums placed in the top 10 also alludes to [size not equating with popularity on Instagram], with it being one of the nation's oldest established sports, and therefore the stadiums often established long before Football, Soccer, and Basketball arenas are ultimately more Instagrammable,” the spokesperson said.
