NFL Domes and Other Forgotten Sports Venues
The other day I came across a Youtube channel called Forgotten Places, and the guy talked about the Seattle Kingdome. I had kind of forgotten about the Kingdome and how it was a dual use stadium. This encouraged me to revisit some other old NFL domes from back in the day. These are some forgotten domes I remember from not so long ago.

Seattle Kingdome:



Astrodome:



RCA Dome:



Metrodome:



Edward Jones Dome:



Georgia Dome:



Pontiac Silverdome:



Hard to believe the Superdome outlasted them all. What are some of your favorite old sports venues?

I was always thought the Memphis Pyramid was cool, too bad they turned it into a Bass Pro Shop

I remember the Silverdome more for Pistons games than Lions games. Tickets would be like a buck for some games. The place was rocking when they started to get good in the late '80's before they moved to the Palace.

Lions games were usually a bloodbath of fights in the upper deck. It was probably smart to go down to 65,000 capacity when they built Ford Field.

I always thought the RCA Dome was a great venue to watch a game.

Man I had totally forgotten about the Edward Jones and Georgia domes. I would not have been able to tell you where the EJ dome was. Georgia Dome, I might have gotten if you asked me....

I'm surprised they put bleachers in the upper deck.

These thing were all the rage for a while.

I think Oakland was the last of them though before the Raiders moved.

Old Yankee Stadium, Tiger Stadium-Detroit. The Braves had Fulton County and Turner Field before the new park, Jack Murphy Stadium (think it’s gone, was Qualcomm after). I’m sure I’m missing others.

Whoa now, the Astrodome is still there.

As is the Edward Jones Dome.

Orange Bowl. Great atmosphere and loved the way the crowd was on top of the game.

Pretty amazing to me St. Louis doesn't have a team yet.

When the Browns left for Baltimore, the NFL shat itself and almost immediately granted a new franchise retaining the Browns name.

St. Louis is a larger media market and cannot get a whiff at another team.

The Edward Jones dome is still open and being used in St. Louis.

Home of the Battlehawks. Coming back in 2022.
