Thread: Football field

  1. #1

    Football field

    There is a soccer field and stadium in Township, but no football field or stadium. Can we add them?

    Assuming you mean American Football, do enough other countries play that to justify its inclusion, you think? Forgive my complete ignorance in asking - it's just not a sport I'm remotely familiar with, so as far as I'm concerned everybody or nobody might be into it outside of North America. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Mainly a US sport but there are the foreign leagues in SA, Europe, Asia, Africa & Australia. Top running sport worldwide, though, is soccer/football.

    One issue with this is the same as the existing stadium, it's a matter of scale. To make an American football stadium look believeable it would need to be huge.

    And if this is included, as a more localised sport it will open the floodgates for cries of..."there is an American football venue, why not a...(insert your national sport here) venue"

    While I’m alllll for American Football (being from Texas it’s a way life quite honestly) I’ve always just imagined that’s what the current stadium is for.

    I think a gridiron, if I have the right term, as a coin decoration the same size as the rugby pitch would be a good addition. On the sports theme, a similarly scaled swimming pool would also be good. Maybe kill two birds with one stone by repurpoising the dolphinarium?

    Weeeellll, talking about scale, the soccer stadium isn‘t remotely in scale, and I suppose the football one wouldn‘t either. I personally have no problem with a football stadium (but only as a deco, not as a CB, please ...), it‘s a globalized sport in my opinion. Even, if it‘s not my favorite sport

    To be fair if it is just a decoration that is fine, I have no problem with it...I just foresee a lot of requests coming in for other sports... I'll start with I would like a cricket pitch for my village green, a showjumping arena and yes JayS a swimming pool please.

    hee-hee...the scale of the stadium we have now looks funny...especially when it is sitting next to something like the rocket ride.

    Fellow Texan...woot-woot! Ikr...me too! (stadium)


    I'd like to see American football as well. Make it like the soccer field...with a couple people on the field passing the ball or kicking a field goal.

    Yes, and once, we‘ve got it, we start a thread in the lounge, where you can explain the rules to me. I was at a cricket game once (in Birmingham) and was lost after five minutes. I had two people sitting right and left to me, who kept yelling the important points at me, well, I could make no sense of it ... but it was fun to watch nevertheless
