A football stadium?

I submitted my local football (soccer) stadium, home to three different teams and several lounges and received a rejection that said 'Not historically or culturally significant' and - is that true? I would have thought a football stadium would be ideal but maybe there is something about it I'm not seeing? This is the stadium.

    Not historically or culturally significant often appears as the result of a bug. Typically what happens is that a significant amount of reviewers rejected your nomination for being a duplicate of an existing wayspot, but not quite enough did this to trigger the actual duplicate rejection message. The system doesn't know how to handle this situation, so it just chucks out the not historically or culturally significant reason instead.

    Would you mind saying where this stadium is?

    OK, I think I've found it. If it's Twerton Park Stadium, then it was probably getting marked as a duplicate of Bath City FC, which already exists in the database. They're effectively the same thing, though I would probably suggest that the existing wayspot be renamed to "Twerton Park Stadium - Bath City FC"

  • The stadium is home to several different teams (not just bath FC but also Bristol city as shown in the photo for example) so I didn't think that would be an issue as one is the football club and the other, the venue. Thank you for the insight on the duplicate though!
