Gillette Stadium has been voted one of the dirtiest stadiums in North America. A new study has just been taken rating sports stadiums all across North America. The website Betsperts analyzed fan reviews to find the top 10 dirtiest sports venues across the continent, using the number of food safety violations in each arena and stadium hygiene as their criteria. Gillette just missed the top 3 coming in at #4 with 2.8% of dirty reviews. Doesn’t sound like a lot, but considering the cleanest stadiums PNC Arena, Enterprise Center, TIAA Bank Field, U.S. Bank Stadium, Xcel Energy Center and Coors Field got 0 percent dirty reviews, it’s pretty bad.

So if you’re considering traveling to visit your favorite team, consider whether or not you’d like to bring your hand sanitizer with you when you visit the following venues below. Here is a list of the dirtiest sports venues in North America.
