Tao Stadium is the central icon of Tao City’s identity. When artificial gravity was created by The Corporation, they created a stadium with a vertical infield that stretches high into the sky above any other building in the city. From a ground level point of view, the players are standing sideways up in the infield.
However, the outfield uses natural gravity where the majority of fans watch the gladiator-style combat of both teams as they fight for the ball. The color coded outfield represents the different safe and combat regions and well as their starting positions. The outfielders are typically the brutes and thugs of the team. These outfielders must wear throwing apparatus’s to throw the ball the great distance back into the infield.
Elite dining and seating is available for only the wealthiest of Tao City citizens above the dugouts high in the infield.
