Answer to Question #49824 in Economics of Enterprise for Chris-Obi
Why have far fewer basketball and hockey teams sought single-use stadiums than have baseball and football teams?
Multi-purpose stadiums are a type of stadium designed to be easily used by multiple types of events. While any stadium could potentially host more than one type of sport or event, this concept usually refers to a specific design philosophy that stresses multi-functionality over specificity. Basketball and hockey stadiums are much more different (different tconditions, standarts, temperature, specific requirements), than baseball and football teams, which can use a single multi-purpose stadium, so far fewer basketball and hockey teams sought single-use stadiums than have baseball and football teams.
