☆ packed 満員の
This week’s useful phrase is, “The stadium is packed.” Our local soccer team is Adelaide United, and their home stadium is tiny. It can fit 15,000 people maximum. It’s great for watching soccer, because you are so close to the pitch. But, even at a busy popular game, there is only about 8 or 9,000 people there. So, yes, you could definitely not say that it was packed! Ha ha.
How about at sporting events in Japan? Are the arenas and stadiums usually packed for things like baseball and soccer? Or does it depend on the team? I guess the Olympics will sell out of tickets, right? So that will mean that every single event will have a packed arena, right? That will be a great atmosphere!
